Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus Description
Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus is a name commonly given to a dangerous ransomware Trojan known as the 'Der Computer Ist Fr Die Verletzung Der Gesetze Der Republik Sterreich Blockiert Worden' ransomware infection. According to ESG security researchers, the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus is incorrectly named due to the fact that the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus refers to a malware infection that targets computer users in Austria rather than in Australia. However, regardless of the name given to it, the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus carries out the same basic scam as a large number of variants of the so-called Ukash Virus that target computer users in various countries in Europe. If you cannot access your computer because of a full-screen, obtrusive message written in German that prevents you from accessing your desktop and other Windows components, ESG security researchers strongly advise ignoring this message and instead taking steps to remove the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus infection from your computer.
There are variants of this ransomware corresponding to most countries in the European Union. The Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus is used by criminals to block access to their victims' computers, forcing them to pay a substantial fine under false pretenses. Basically, the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus ransomware message alleges that the infected PC was involved in illegal activities (such as trafficking with pirated software or visiting forbidden pornographic websites). The Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus will claim to be a message from the Austrian Federal Police and will demand that the victim pay a fine using the legitimate Ukash money transfer service. The Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus claims that if the penalty is not paid, the Australian Federal Police Ukash Virus will contact the authorities and eventually fine the victim with a penalty of thousands of Euros and possible jail time.
