Internet Police Department Virus is an umbrella name for ransomware infections which share the illegally attached credentials of the Internet Police Department. Most ransomware threats from this group are controlled through the malicious Urausy Trojan which requires immediate removal; however, it would not be surprising if infections linked to Reveton, Flimrans and other Trojans would utilize the names and logos of this scary-looking organization as well. In reality, you need to pay no attention to the information presented to you through a computer lock-down because this is how schemers will try to fool you into giving up your savings. Without a doubt, the last thing you should do is pay attention to the fictitious fine because this will not lead you anywhere. Please continue reading if you want to delete Internet Police Department Virus but you have no idea what removal steps to begin with.
Ransomware infections using the credentials of Internet Police Department have been discovered all over the world, including Australia, Canada, the U.S. and Germany. All of these infections are recognized by individual names, like Unité Spéciale de la Police Virus, Australian Communications and Media Authority Virus or Keskusrikospoliisi Virus. At first sight it may seem as if all of these threats have been created by different cyber criminals; however, the different interfaces have been created to fit specific countries. For example, if you live in Germany, you will discover that your computer has been locked with a screen-size notification which flaunts the German flag and the credentials of national law enforcers. Nevertheless, there is one thing that all Urausy Virus versions share – the misleading accusations:
ATTENTION! Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.
You are accused of viewing/storage and/or dissemination of banned pornography […] you are suspected of violation of “Copyright and Related rights Law” […] unauthorized access had been stolen to information of State importance and to data closed for public Internet access […] your personal computer had been regularly used for bulk-spamming
It is stated that if you do not pay the fine, which depends on the country you live in (e.g. $100 or DKK 1000), you could be sent to prison. Pay no attention to this intimidating statement and ignore the ridiculous payment demands because paying the fine via Ukash, Moneypak, Moneygram of Paysafecard is usually ineffective. Do you want to waste your savings for no good reason? Then avoid the request and remove Internet Police Department Virus as soon as possible. Without a doubt, it is a challenge to have the threat deleted from the computer; however, if you follow the removal instructions provided below, soon enough your computer will be ready to run again.
