There are many infections localized for North America and major European countries. Landespolizeidirection Bundesministerium für Inneres Virus is one of these ransomware programs and it attacks computer users in Austria. It is delivered to your computer by Urausy trojan, that is possible to catch via fake online malware scanners, fake updaters, fake codecs and so on.
