European Law Enforcement Agency Virus is a computer threat aimed at deceiving computer users into believing that their computers are locked by Europol, which is an institution that helps the Member States deal with international crime. When the infection gets in the system, the screen is locked so that the user will star to think that the accusations presented in the message displayed by the virus are serious.
Every computer user should know that legal authoritative institutions do not charge computer users through the Internet. Therefore, it is important not to panic whenever a suspicious message asking to pay through a particular service appears on the screen. This is a typical characteristic of Uhash viruses such as IRMA virus, Magyar Rendorseg Virus, Bundesamt für Polizei virus, Canadian Security Intelligence Service Virus and others. Interestingly, instead of a 100 euro ransom fee, European Law Enforcement Agency Virus demand 250 dollars which, according to the notification, should be paid through the Ukash or Paysafecard electronic payment system. Keep in mind that the computer is paralyzed by Reveton Trojan which is responsible for keeping the system inoperable; hence you should not pay Trojan-developers but remove the infection from the system.
