Ireland's National Police Service Virus

Ireland's National Police Service Virus is a ransomware program which can be dropped onto the operating Windows system with the assistance of the malicious Trojan.Urausy.A. This infection travels through spam email attachments, misguiding links, online ads and other security loopholes which are exposed if your operating Windows system is not guarded by reliable security software. Most Windows users will not know about the existence of this clandestine infection until it is too late and their PCs are locked down. Has access to your Windows system been removed? Has a strange notification demanding you to pay money popped up on the screen? Then have no doubt that a malicious ransomware infection has entered your computer. We recommend that you remove Ireland's National Police Service Virus right away.

Once the infection takes over your system, it produces a bogus security warning using the credentials of Windows, Ireland's National Police, Guard of the Peace, Military Police Corps and other authentic departments. Because of this, the malicious ransomware is often referred to as ICSPA Virus or EC3 Europol Virus. Even though the malign threat is dangerous to those who live in Ireland only, there are quite a few different versions of the same infection which are targeted at other countries. Few of the most recent of them are Rikspolisstyrelsen Virus and Politiet Kongeriget Danmark Virus and you should delete them too. As mentioned, the virus displays a fake, screen-locking alert:

ATTENTION! Your PC is blocked to at least one of the reasons specified below...
You have been violating <> […]
Illegal access has been initiated from your PC without your knowledge or consent […]
Spam distribution of other unlawful advertising has been effected from your PC […]
The amount of fine is €100 or £100. You can pay a fine PaySafeCard or Ukash.

Pay no attention to any of these statements because your activity has not been recorded by any real law enforcement agencies. If you pay the seemingly legitimate fines, you give your money to cyber criminals who then can invest in further virtual schemes. Do you want to aid cyber crooks? Surely you do not, which is why Ireland's National Police Service Virus removal should be performed as soon as possible. Are you thinking about manual removal procedures? We do not recommend this option. Would you like to have both the Trojan and the ransomware removed reliably and timely?
