Ukash Virus infection is a piece of ransomware that has different variations but only one goal which is to deceive you and make you voluntarily pay money to the cyber criminals. The infection bypasses security applications and paralyzes the computer’s system so that you cannot access any parts of it. The infection displays a bogus alert message claiming that the computer is locked because some copyright material has been detected on the computer. In different countries, the messages presented are very similar, because they claim that either pirated pieces of music or pornographic videos have been detected. The only difference is in currency, which can be Great Britain pounds, Canadian or American dollars, or Euros. The money must be paid to “unlock” the computer, and the sum is typically of one hundred dollars or pounds. As the affected computer is just infected with a network threat, it is very important to ignore the message and remove the Ukash Virus infection.
Ukask Virus infection has different variants designed for different countries. The American version is the FBI Moneypak virus or FBI virus, which claims that illegally downloaded software, movies and MP3 files were detected on the victim’s PC. Other versions of the infection are GVU virus, SUISA virus, SPAUTORES virus, AKM virus, BUMA Stemra virus, PRS for Music virus and SACEM virus. The infections have been detected in Belgium, Poland, Germany, Spain Portugal and other countries.
The messages of the infections claim that the user has to pay a charge either through Ukash or Paysafecard systems, which are well known by online customers who pay for their goods through theses paying systems. However, Ukash Virus infection and the two systems are not related; hence, however authoritative the message may seem to be, it is important to remember that its content is simulated. In addition to the logo or title of Ukash, more famous brand names are present, which is done to convince the unsuspecting user, that the only way to unlock the “frozen” computer is to pay the ransom. The truth is that the machine will be unlocked only if Ukash Virus infection is removed, which should not be done manually because of the complex structure of the threat.
