Ministerio de seguridad virus

Although national security agencies are organizations that are supposed to keep track of crimes online and offline, Ministerio de Segutidad (Ministry of Security) in Argentina cannot lock down personal computers. This is exactly the impression that Ministerio de seguridad virus wants to make by posing as an official notification from Argentinian law enforcement authorities. If a user is convinced that he really has committed a cyber crime, he is more likely to transfer the ransom fee that is called "fine" by Ministerio de seguridad virus. You cannot access your desktop because your computer is infected with malware, not because of supposed illegal activities. Ministerio de seguridad virus is a ransomware infection that you need to remove immediately, otherwise your system will remained blocked.

From its interface it is possible to say that Ministerio de seguridad virus belongs to a group of Ukash Viruses delivered by Urausy trojan. Other similar infections include Policia Boliviana Virus, Dirección General de la Policía Virus, Politiet Norge Virus and so on. These infections employ alternative payment systems such as PaySafeCard or Ukash to collect money from unsuspecting and scared computer users. These payment systems have nothing in common with Ministerio de seguridad virus and other ransomware programs, but their simplicity allows the malware to target even those users who do not have bank accounts - Ukash does not require your bank account or credit card number to transfer money. Therefore it is unfortunate, but a lot of users pay immediately once they see the following notification on their screens:

¡ATENCIÓN! Su OP (ordenador) está bloqueado debido a al menus una de las razones especificadas siguientes.

Usted ha violado “el derecho de autor y los derechos conexos” (video, música, software) y ha utilizado de una manera illegal con la distribución de contenido los derechos de autor, infrigiendo así el artículo 128 del Criminal Code de la República de Argentina.

Las multas deben solamente ser pagodas durante 72 horas después de la infracción. Tan pronto como 72 horas transcurren, su posibilidad de pagar la multa sera expirada, así, un proceso penal será automáticamente iniciado en su contra durante las próximas 72 horas!

El importe de la multa es de ARS $200 (Peso) o USD $100 (US Dólar).

Usted puede pagar esta multa por PaySafeCard o Ukash.

Ministerio de seguridad virus claims that you can face criminal charges if you do not pay the fine within 72 hours. Also it promises to unlock your computer once the payment is transferred. These claims are absolutely groundless and your computer will not be unlocked unless you remove Ministerio de seguridad virus right now.
