Suomen Poliisi Virus
The newest group of Ukash Virus group threats proves that ransomware infections are not going anywhere in 2013. Suomen Poliisi Virus is a malicious program that attacks users in Finland, and tries to steal their money by convincing them, that they have to pay a fine in order to unlock their computers. Suomen Poliisi Virus claims that the Finnish Police office has locked down a compromised computer, because the user has been engaged in illegal cyber activities. The infection presents a long list of supposed offenses in a screen-sized message that blocks user from accessing his desktop. You can an excerpt of the said message below:
Aside from accusing you of illegally downloading copyrighted material, Suomen Poliisi Virus also claims that you have been downloading and distributing material related to child pornography and bestiality. It sites a few made-up articles and says that for everything you have done, you could be put into prison for up to 12 years (and more). The same scare tactics is utilized by other Ukash Group infections, including FBI Cybercrime Division Virus, Polizia Penitenziaria Virus, ICSPA Virus and many others. Just like its other variants, Suomen Poliisi Virus is distributed by Urausy trojan, so it means that even if you remove the ransomware from your computer, you will need to terminate the trojan as well.
Therefore, no matter what you do, do not pay the ransom fee, because Suomen Poliisi Virus has no intention of unlocking your PC. Also, do not blame Ukash and/or PaySafeCard for siding up with the criminals behind this infection. These alternative payment systems are simply being used by Suomen Poliisi Virus because of their simplicity. To not get tricked by this threat.
