Just because a notification on your screen carries the symbols of law enforcement authorities, it does not mean that you have to trust it completely. ISCPA Virus is a computer infection that looks like a legitimate notification from the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance. This ransomware infection has multiple versions and it targets users in different countries. Each ISCPA Virus is localized, and it presents the fake security notification in the local language, bearing the logo of local law enforcement authorities. It wants the users to believe that they have been caught red-handed in the middle of committed a cyber crime and thus they need to pay a ransom fee, otherwise their computers will remain locked.

ISCPA Virus is part of the infections from the Ukash Virus group that are distributed by Urausy trojan. It is possible to get infected with this ransomware, when you click on a fake browser or add-on update and then the malware finds its way into your system. There is an extensive list of similar infections, including United Kingdom Police Virus, FBI Cybercrime Virus, Urausy FBI Ransomware infection and many more. All of them are similar in a way that they lock down your computer and then demand a ransom fee that can range from 100 pounds to 100 USD or 100 euro. The currency of the ransom fee depends on your locale. Also, ISCPA Virus asks you to transfer the money via Ukash or PaySafeCard alternative payment systems (hence the name Ukash Virus group). However, these payment systems have nothing to do with the infection, the cyber criminals simply decided to make use of them, because alternative payment systems does not require users to have a bank account or a credit card, so as a result, ISCPA Virus can target a lot wider range of computer users.

The messages displayed on your locked-down screen by different variants of ISCPA Virus are all very similar, and basically differ in language only. You will find a UK version of ISCPA Virus notification below:

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

You have been viewing or distributing prohibited Pornographic content (Child Porn/Zoophilia and etc). Thus violating article 202 of the Criminal Code of Great Britain.

Article 202 of the Criminal Code provides for a deprivation of liberty for 4 to 12 years.

Fines may only be paid within 72 hours after the infringement. As soon as 72 hours elapse, the possibility to pay the fine expires, and a criminal case is initiated against you automatically within the next 72 hours!

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

Do not pay the fine, because your computer will not be unlocked - ISCPA Virus will simply steal your money, and your system will remain locked. Therefore, you have to take control of the situation and bypass the desktop block. To achieve that, follow these instructions:
