Ministère de L’intérieur virus
There are a lot of fake security notification messages that try to force you into paying your money for nothing. Ministère de L’intérieur virus employs that kind of notification when it locks down your computer and does not allow you to access your desktop. This infection tortures computer users in France. It makes it seem as though the user has committed a serious crime and his crimes have been unveiled by the Minister of the Interior. Naturally, when a user in France sees a notification supposedly send by an official law enforcement authority, he is bound to panic, but there is nothing real about Ministère de L’intérieur virus and here is the reason why.
Ministère de L’intérieur virus is a ransomware infection from Ukash Virus group family, and it shares the same tactics with hundreds of other ransomware programs that have infected thousands of users worldwide this year. Ministère de L’intérieur virus shares its interface with Ihr Computer ist gesperrt virus and hails from the same family as FBI Moneypak, GVU Virus, Gema Virus and many other infections that have stolen hundreds thousands of dollars and euros worldwide. Therefore, you should pay no heed to the following notification displayed by Ministère de L’intérieur virus:
VOTRE ORDINATEUR EST BLOQUE
Le fonctionnement de votre ordinateur etait arrete en raison de la cyberactivite non sactionnee.
Article - 174. Droit d'auter
Pour debloquer l'ordinateur et pour eviter d'autres consequences de droit, vous devez payer l'amende dans la mesure de 100 EUR.
Attention! L'amende ne peut etre payee que pendant 48 heures, si pendant cette periode le paiement n'est pas produit, il sera impossible de debloquer l'ordinateur.
Accusing you of copyright infringement is only one of the things Ministère de L’intérieur virus does to push you into paying the 100 euro fine. It also accuses you of distributing child pornography, and aiding terrorist organizations. What is more, you will a list of legitimate antivirus programs that supposedly recognized Ministère de L’intérieur virus as a legitimate application, and it only make it all seem more believable.
However, even if Ministère de L’intérieur virus says that you have to pay the fine within 48 hours, you should never do as you are told. You will only lose your money, and the ransomware will never unlock your computer. Thus, you must remove Ministère de L’intérieur virus from your system following the instructions below:
