If you do not employ safe Internet browsing practices, it is very easy to get infected with malware. Such ransomware infections as Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus are especially annoying, because they block desktop access and demand users to pay a ransom fee, if they want to access their files again. It goes without saying that users must remove Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus from their computers as soon as the infection manifests itself. Unfortunately, the infection is very good at threatening its victims, so not all users know what to do. If you want to find out how to deal with this computer threat, keep on reading the article.
At first, you need to understand that Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus is by no means related to the Mexican law enforcement authorities. The notification that you see on your screen is devised by a localized version of Ukash Virus. Also, it is not the first time that the Mexican computer users have been infected with these ransomware applications. For example, a similar infection called POLICÍA FEDERAL Virus has terrorized computer users in Mexico before. The only difference between these two programs is that POLICÍA FEDERAL Virus was related to Raxm Trojan, while Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus is distributed by Urausy Trojan.
Nevertheless, the tactics employed by all the ransomware applications to extort your money out of you are practically the same. Once Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus gets into your system, it displays a screen-sized notification which accuses you of illegal activity:
¡ATENCIÓN! Su ordenador personal ha sido bloqueado por razones de seguridad vistos los motives abajo detallados.
Usted está acusado de mirar/conserver y/o divulger los materials pornográficos del contenido prohibido (Pornografía infantile/Zoofilia/Violación etc.). Usted ha infrigido la Declaración mundial de la lucha contra la divulgación de la pronografía infantile y está acusado de cometer el crimen en razón al Artículo 161 del Código Penal del Estados Unidos Mexicanos.
Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus goes on to say that for distributing child pornography you could face up to 11 years in prison, and if you do not want your case to be forwarded to the court, you need to pay 2000 Mexican Pesos within 48 hours. The infection asks you to pay the fine by Ukash or PaySafeCard vouchers. It also says that if you pay the fine on time, your computer will be unlocked and you will be able to operate it normally again.
Should you fail to transfer the fine, you could face criminal charges. Not to mention that Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus warns you against trying to unlock your computer manually, because if you do try it, your data will be formatted for good. However, all these threats should not be taken seriously, because the program is nothing but a computer malware application. Follow the instructions below to restore your desktop access and then invest in a computer safeguard program that will help you remove Secretaria de Seguridad Publica Virus automatically.
