CIBS Pol Virus

No matter how careful you might be about browsing the Internet, things like CIBS Pol Virus can still find a way into your computer. This is not a genuine computer virus per se, but it is called like that for simplicity's sake, because its real category is a ransomware infection. If you live in Switzerland and you are infected with CIBS Pol Virus, you definitely know that this program blocks your desktop access and accuses you of things you have never done - namely, a whole list of cyber crimes including illegal distribution of copyrighted material and child pornography. The notification that blocks you from accessing your desktop carries a logo of Swiss Civilian Police, trying to make the message legal, but that is very far from it.

It is quite obvious that one should not believe in anything CIBS Pol Virus says. This infection has other aliases as well, for example, Confédération Suisse Virus or Bundesamt für Polizei Virus, and it is distributed by Urausy trojan like an extensive list of other Ukash Viruses. They are localized in order to target users in specific countries, but main message in the displayed notification is the same no matter where you are - pay up now or you will be charged for illegal activities. Since you have not committed anything illegal, CIBS Pol Virus cannot do anything to do. It could not either way, because it is a malicious program that has nothing to do with Swiss Police Office. Therefore, you have to ignore the message displayed by this threat completely:

ACHTUNG! Ihr Computer ist aus einem oder mehreren der unten aufgeführten Gründe gesperrt.

Sie haben gegen das Gestz über “Urheberrecht und verwandte Schutzrecthe” (Video, Musik, Software) verstoßen und unrechtmäßig urheberrechtliche Inhalte genutzt, bzw. verbreiteit und somit gegen Art. 128 des Strafgesetzbuches der Schweizerischen Strafgesetzbuches verstoßen.

Die Strafe kann jeweils nur 72 Stunden nach Begehen der Straftat entrichtet werden. Nach Abflauf der Frist von 72 Stunden verfällt die Möglichkeit einer Strafzahlung und innerhalb der nächsten 72 Stunden wird automatisch gegen Sie ein Strafverfahren eingeleitet.

Der Betrag der Strafzahlung beläuft sich auf CHF 100 order €100 PaySafeCard oder Ukash.
