Everything gets developed as time goes by and the same can be applied to ransomware infections. System Failure warning Virus is a new type of ransomware program from Ukash Virus group. This infection attacks users in Great Britain. When this threat enters your system, the fake security notification appears as a kind of system failure message. However, the rest of the message is very similar to the one seen in other variants of ransomware infections. The main thing you have to understand about System Failure Warning Virus is that the message displayed on your screen is fake and you should never do what you are told by this program.
System Failure Warning Virus makes an impression that it has been sent by Europol (European law enforcement agency) and you have been caught in the middle of illegal cyber activity. In this aspect, the infection behaves just like other Ukash Viruses, including Policía Nacional de Uruguay Virus, Malta Police Association Virus, EC3 Europol Virus and others. The infection claims that you need to pay a fine within 48 hours otherwise you will lose a possibility to unlock your PC. What is more, System Failture Warning Virus also claims that a criminal case will be initiated against you if you do not pay!
You PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.
You have been subjected to violated of Copyright and Related Rights Law (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted contents, thus infringing Article 1, Section 8, Clause 8, also known as the Copyright of the Criminal Code of Great Britain..
To unlock your computer and to avoid other legal consequences, you are obliged to pay a release fee of £100.
When you pay the fine, your PC will be unblocked in 3 to 48 hours after the money is put into the your account.
Poor grammar in this notification should be enough to convince you that System Failure Warning Virus is nothing but bad news. It is quite obvious that no criminal case can be initiated against you, because the infection itself is a manifestation of illegal activity. Also, the ransomware will not unblock your computer no matter how much money you transfer via Ukash or PaySafeCard.
