Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus

If your desktop is blocked by a notification from Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus, do not panic. This ransomware infection holds your computer hostage and asks for a ransom fee, camouflaging its attempt to rob you by saying that you need to pay a fine for a crime you have not committed. You need to restore your desktop access to remove Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus and all the other infections that are most probably hiding in your system. This ransomware program is distributed by Urausy Trojan, so there is a high chance that your PC is infected with a lot more malware applications than you actually can see.

Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus is actually another name for Metropolitan British Police Virus, as this program is a new version of Ukash Virus group infections, localized for the British market. Other similar applications that have already caught the eye of security experts include Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus and Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information virus. All these infection try to look like they deliver official messages from law enforcement authorities. They present a list of fake offenses that you have supposedly committed, and then they say that you need to pay a designated fine if you want to avoid prison. Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus is no different. Here is an extract of the message it displays on your blocked desktop:


Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.

You are accused of viewing/storage and/or dissemination of banned pornography (child pornography/zoophilia/rape etc). You have violated World Declaration on non-proliferation of child pornography. You are accused of committing the crime envisaged by Article 161 of Kingdom of Great Britain criminal law.

Amount of fine is £100.

You can pay a fine Ukash or PaySafeCard vouchers.

Shaky grammar in this notification should be enough for you to realize that there is nothing real about from Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus. This infection only wants to steal your money by making you think that with this money transfer you are avoiding a trial (that would not take place in the first place). If you are suspicious about the message on your screen, you can always contact your local law enforcement authorities and ask whether they really blocked your PC and they will definitely tell you that they do not even has such jurisdiction. Therefore, your desktop access block is obviously illegal and you need to remove Serios Organised Crime Agency Virus from your system right now.
