Gobierno de España Virus

When you get infected with ransomware programs the most important thing is not to panic. Gobierno de España Virus is one of those ransomware applications that deny desktop access and then display a fake security notification across your screen saying that you have violated several national laws and therefore your computer has been blocked. However, the real reason why you cannot access your desktop is money – Gobierno de España Virus intends to steal your money by making you pay a non-existent fine. Rather than doing what the infection expects of you, you need to remove Gobierno de España Virus from your computer right now.

Luckily, we know exactly what to expect of Gobierno de España Virus, because it is not the first infection from Ukash Virus group. Other ransomware programs that have targeted computer users in Spain include Grupo de Delitos Telemáticos virus, Cuerpo National de Policía virus, Dirección General de la Policía Virus and other similar infections. Most of them are distributed by such Trojans as Urausy, Revoyem, Reveton and others. However, it is also possible for a ransomware program to be distributed by a rootkit. Therefore, even if you unlock your computer, it is important to scan the system with a powerful antimalware program in order to terminate all the dangerous threats hiding inside your PC.

Therefore, you should not be taken by surprise, when the following notification appears on your screen:

La actividad de su ordenador fue detenido a causa de la ciberactividad no autorizada.

En caso intent de desbloqueo por su propia iniciativa todos su datos seron formateados. Todos los ficheros, videos, fotos, documentos en su ordenador seron eliminados.

Para desbloquear el ordenador y evitar otras consecuencias juridicas debe pagar la multa por el valoc de 100 EUR.

As you can perfectly see, Gobierno de España Virus tries to convince you that you have been involved in illegal activity. Although the list of legal articles you have supposedly violated is not presented in the example, the infection claims that you have been involved in child pornography distribution, terrorism promotion, credit card fraud and many other things that usually would end up in a serious criminal case. When a user is threatened and scared he is more likely to transfer the 100 EUR “fine” via Ukash or PaySafeCard alternative payment systems.

Nevertheless, it should be obvious that paying the money will not solve your problem. Not to mention that Gobierno de España Virus will not unlock your computer. You need to restore your desktop access yourself. To do that, refer to the instructions below. Afterwards, once you get your desktop back, install a licensed antimalware program and run a full system scan to detect and terminate all the other possible infections.
