Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is a computer threat that belongs to the ransomware category. It means that this infection holds your computer hostage and you cannot perform any operations until Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is removed from the system. During this infection, your desktop is totally blocked and when you turn on your computer you are greeted with a screen-sized message that says your computer is locked due to the fact that you've broken the Penal Code of the Kingdom of Norway. However, Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is not a program that could be controlled by the Norwegian police. Law enforcement authorities do not have a jurisdiction to lock down your computer.
Computer infections pretending to be official messages from law enforcement authorities are not something new. Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is just another version of the notorious Ukash Virus, that has also spawned such localized ransomware infection variants as Norsk Politi Instititutt, Politia Romana Virus, Europol Ransomware Virus and the like. As you can see from its title, Politiet Norge Ukash Virus targets computer users in Norway in hopes of ripping them off. The message that is supposed to help the ransomware do that is as follows:
OBS! PC-en din er blokkert pa grunn av minst en av folgende grunner.

Botbelopet er NOK 1000 eller €100. Boten kan betales via Ukash/PaySafeCard.
Politiet Norge Ukash Virus accuses the user of illegally using and distributing copyrighted material .According to the Norwegian Penal Code, if the charges are proven to be true, that would result in 2 or 5 years in prison.
