Flimrans Trojan

Flimrans Trojan is one of the Trojan bots that distribute malware infections from the Ukash Virus group. It is similar to Reveton and Urausy trojans, and it enters your system surreptitiously, without a single prompt. Flimrans Trojan distributes such infections as Luxembourg Police Grand-Ducale Virus or Tietoverkkorikosten Tutkinnan Yksikkö Virus. The many localized versions of these ransomware infections show that Flimrans Trojan spreads quickly around the globe, thus it does not matter where you live – you can become a target of this dangerous infection.

When you get infected with Flimrans Trojan, the next time you turn on your computer, instead of your desktop you are presented with a fraudulent notification in a local language, saying that illegal cyber activity has been associated with your IP address and so your computer has been blocked by local law enforcement authorities. The name of the authorities change according to the country of residence, but Flimrans Trojan employs such as name for its ransomware applications as Federal German police (Bundespolizei) or the Hungarian Police Office (Magyarország Rendőrség). The names of the law enforcement authorities are added in order to scare users into thinking that they have really violated national laws.

Because of Flimrans Trojan you get infected with ransomware application that claims you will be sentenced to a few years in prison, because of copyright infringement, child pornography distribution and many other things. Of course, all of these accusations are not true, and the ransomware infection in question is merely trying to push you into transferring a fixed ransom fee (or “fine” as it calls it) via Ukash or PaySafeCard. These alternative payment systems have nothing to do with the criminals behind Flimrans Trojan and all these infections, but they are exactly what gave name to the entire group of ransomware infections.

Instead of paying money for a crime you have not committed, you need to remove Flimrans Trojan from your computer along with the ransomware program. In order to remove the Trojan, you need to unlock your desktop first. To do that, follow the instructions below.
