Police Lock Virus Gimemo
Police Lock Virus Gimemo is a group of different variants of the Trojan Gimemo, which is categorized as ransomware or screen locker. The threat is known worldwide because of its different interfaces, each of which is created for a specific country. Police Lock Virus Gimemo has been known to malware researchers since late spring in 2012. The infection has not evolved much as it still locks the screen and generates a misleading full-screen warning that contains the logos of some authoritative institutions. It could the national police, some famous law enforcement agency, for example, FBI; it can also be an organization uniting artists and composers, and so on.
Police Lock Virus Gimemo has different names, which depend on the most prominent features of the interface. Usually it is some institutions; as a result, the Portuguese version of Gimemo is known as SPAUTORES Virus, and the French variant is known as SACEM Virus. Earlier this year, new variants of the Police Lock Virus Gimemo were detected, and it has been observed that the news versions do not differ from the earlier ones significantly. All the variants of Police Lock Virus Gimemo have to be removed from the PC as the infection generates a scam.

Typically, the user is required to pay a fine of 100 Euros in order to unlock the computer, and it is required that that the money be paid using either Ukash or Paysafecard.
