Polizia Penitenziaria Virus

Polizia Penitenziaria Virus is a ransomware application that will not allow you to operate your computer unless you pay the ransom fee. Actually, even if you do pay the ransom, Polizia Penitenziaria Virus will  not unlock your desktop. This ransomware infection is distributed by Urausy trojan. It means that before your desktop is locked by this malware, your system gets compromised by other malicious infections that are responsible for delivering Polizia Penitenziaria Virus onto your PC. You can also become a victim of fake web browser updates or fake codecs. For example, Firefox need to update immediately Fake Alert is know to be essential tool in Polizia Penitenziaria Virus distribution. It affects users who use Mozilla Firefox browser and downloads the ransomware infection to their computers once they click the button embedded in the fake alert.

Naturally, there are more ways for Polizia Penitenziaria Virus to arrive at your PC. It primarily targets users in Italy, but there are many other variants of this infection, that are localized and intended to terrorize users in various countries. For example, aside from Polizia Penitenziaria Virus there are also Royal Canadian Mounted Police Virus, FBI Cybercrime Division Virus, EC3 Europol Virus and many others. All of them block the desktop and then demand a ransom fee, for crimes you haven't committed. Polizia Penitenziaria Virus claims that you have download and illegally distributed copyrighted content, as well as material related to child pornography and bestiality:

ATTENZIONE! Il Suo computer e  bloccato a causa di uno o piu motivi di cui sotto.

Ha visionato o ha distribuito il material pornografic vietato (Pornografia infantile/Zoofilia, ecc.). Violando l'art. 202 del Codice Penale dell'Italia. L'art 202 del Codice Penale prevede una reclusione per un periodo da 4 a 12 anni.

La sanzione penale potrebbe essere pagata solo nel corso di 72 ore dopo la violazione. Dopo 72 ore il termine previsto per il pagamento della sanzione penal scade, e nel corso successsive 72 ore sara automaticamente promossa l'instaurazione di un procedimento penal a Suo carico!

L'importo della sanzione penale e di €100 PaySafeCard o Ukash.

Polizia Penitenziaria Virus and other Ukash Virus group infections make use of such alternative payment systems as PaySafeCard or Ukash, because they are simple to use and do not require credit card information. It might seem as though a legal case can be initiated against you if you do not pay within 72 hours of infringement, but since the entire message is fake, you can be rest assured that declining to pay will have no legal consequences.
