Türk Polisi virus
Ransomware infections are one of the most prominent computer threats nowadays with the onslaught of Reveton Police lock applications that has not declined ever since May. Türk Polisi virus is a new ransomware infection targeting Turkish users, pretending to be an official representative of the Turkish police force. This ransomware locks your computer and does not allow to utilize any of its functions under the pretext that you have committed serious crimes and now have to pay for it (literally).
Türk Polisi virus asks for a 200 TRY fee in order to unlock your computer. At the same time it says that all the charges against you will be withdrawn if you pay on time. In this case Türk Polisi virus is no different from Slovenská Polícia Virus, Ministere de L’interieur Virus, FBI MoneyPak and all the other infections that belong to the Ukash Virus family. Their main goal is to rip you off, and in order to do that Türk Polisi virus (and others) terrorizes you with the frightening security message the excerpts of which are as follows:
Bilgisayarda yapilan tum islemler, kaydedilmektedir. Web kamerasini kullandiginiz halde video ve fotograflari tespit icin kaydedilmektedir.
Bilgisayarinizin kilidini ve cezai kovusturma onlemek icin, 200 TRY odemesini yapmaniz gerekir.
Türk Polisi virus makes it seem as though you are being monitored via your webcam, and all your videos and photos will be used further on for the identification, if your case reaches the trial. Then once again, the ransomware offers you an "easy" way out by saying that the computer can be unlocked and the charges dropped if only you paid 200 TRY. Many users do pay, but you cannot do that, because your computer will remain in the same state, and your money will be lost.
