Europol EC3 Virus

Europol EC3 Virus is a computer infection which is categorized as ransomware because of its capability to lock the computer down. In addition to the lockdown, the threat displays a message which contains the logos or emblems of authoritative legal institutions such as police, International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) and European Cybercrime Centre (EC3).

The infection is spread by the Urausy Trojan which like, for example, the Reveton Trojan, has a lot of different interfaces that are associated with the targeted country. For example, in Germany, computer users find that they are supposedly dealing with the Society for Prosecution of Copyright Infringement (Gesellschaft zur Verfolgung von Urheberrechtsverletzungen e.V.) widely known as GVU, whereas the Americans are forced to believed that FBI has initiated the message. As a result, the American version of the threat is called FBI Cybercrime Division Virus.

Most of all, the logo of European Cybercrime Centre is present in almost every interface of the threat. You can find it in the Irish, British, Finnish and other variants; however, it does not mean that this institution is somehow related to the producers of the warning.  If you have Europol EC3 Virus on your PC, you should immediately remove it to prevent adverse consequences. The false accusations and the fine which you are expected to pay via Ukash, Paysafecard, or MoneyPak should be ignored.

Below you will find two excerpts from the British variant of Europol EC3 Virus:

ATTENTION! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.

The amount of fine is £100. You can pay a fine Ukash or PaySafeCard.
