ICSPA Virus is a term to refer to the latest ransomware infections which have been recently detected by malware researchers. The letters ICSPA stand for International Cyber Security Protection Alliance whose logo is present in almost every message displayed by a Trojan horse called Urausy. There were other ransomware infections associated with the Urausy Trojan, including Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus, GVU virus, Poliisi virus, and so on. Their major goal of these threats is to convince you that the police or other authoritative institution wants to impose a fine of a particular sum of money on you. The same goes for the newest release of computer infections, some of which are FBI Cybercrime Division Virus and United Kingdom Police Virus. All these infections, or rather their interfaces, cannot be trusted because all the credentials of authoritative institutions are presented to trick you into paying money via Paysafecard, MoneyPak, or Ukash, which depends on the country you live in.
If your computer is infected with ICSPA Virus, it is likely that you live in Australia, Canada, Ireland, or UK. Do not panic if you cannot access the computer as you can regain access to the system by removing ICSPA Virus from the system. Do not pay the release fee, which may vary depending on the currency of your country, and ignore the accusations that are pretty much the same in every hoax message.
For example, the Canadian excerpt from the hoax message reads:
You have been violating «Copyright and Related Law» (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, thus infringing Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
Here is how the same part of the message looks like in the message presented by FBI Cybercrime Division Virus:
You have been violating «Copyright and Related Rights Law» (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, thus infringing Article 1, Section 2, Clause 8, also known as the Copyright of the Criminal Code of the United Stated of America.
If your computer is paralyzed by ICSPA Virus and you see that it contains the credentials of your local police, you can always contact them and find out whether you are charged with the use or distribution of copyrighted or pornographic material.
You may also find that European Cybercrime Center, whose logo is added into the misleading message, is presented as a part of the issue. There is now legal institution which would attempt to violate your privacy and get to your PC without your consent in order to provide you with accusations, so do not be afraid of taking some actions and remove ICSPA Virus right now.
