Svenska Polisen Virus

The newest batch of international ransomware infections come forth with a disturbing way of distribution, that only adds up to the overall impression that users are the ones to blame for the situation at hand. Svenska Polisen Virus is a Ukash Virus group infection that targets computers with Swedish IP addresses. It accuses you of having committed various crimes, locking down your computer and displaying a notification that supposedly has been delivered by the Swedish Police authorities. It is important that you remove Svenska Polisen Virus by unlocking your desktop as soon as you can, otherwise you will not be able to operate your PC normally.

Although Svenska Polisen Virus is not the first Ukash infection to be detected in Sweden (previously we have dealt with such threats as Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet Ukash, Kriminalpolisenheten virus, Din Dator är Blockerad Virus and the like), it is the first computer threat it implement such disturbing tactics for its distribution. The ransomware application travels along with Revoyem Trojan, however, users are the ones who often initiate the malware download process, especially if they frequent pornography websites.

Pornography websites are known to be full of potentially corrupted flash ads with outgoing links to malware-related websites, and if you click on one of such ads, you could be redirected to a child pornography page by TrafficHolder malvert, and from there it you would be automatically infected with Svenska Polisen Virus, which would immediately lock you out of your computer.

Keeping in mind that among all the other things Svenska Polisen Virus accuses you of being involved in child pornography viewing, such distribution scheme seems to have been employed to make the ransomware notification even more believable. Nevertheless, the message on your screen cannot be trusted, as it has nothing to do with law enforcement authorities.

No matter what Svenska Polisen Virus may tell you about paying the fine via PaySafeCard or any other alternative payment system, you should ignore all these incitements, because by paying the fine you would only lose your money. To protect your money and save your computer, you should unlock your desktop and then remove Svenska Polisen Virus automatically with a reliable computer security application that will help you to safeguard the system against similar malicious programs.
