Security researchers warn computer users in Mexico about the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware scam. Although, only a short time ago, Police Ransomware infections were practically limited to Europe and certain English-speaking countries around the world, in the last year these types of attacks have skyrocketed, spreading to every corner of the world. The 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware is just one of the many Latin American variants in this scam that have popped up in the last year. As with other Police Ransomware attacks such as the Cheshire Police Authority Ransomware, the PRISM 'Your Computer Has Been Locked!'Ransomware and the 'Osterreichischen Polizei' Ransomware to name only a few, ESG security researchers strongly recommend that computer users ignore the contents of the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware message and that they use a strong anti-malware program to remove the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware from their computer instead.

How the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware Tries to Take Advantage of Novice PC Users


The 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware blocks all access to the victim's computer, preventing the computer users from accessing the infected computer's Desktop and files. When the infected computer starts up, instead of displaying the Windows Desktop it displays a full screen message associated with the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware. This message accuses the victim of illegal activities, including viewing child pornography and distributing malware and spam email. After listing severe penalties for these offenses, including threatening the computer user with jail time and enormous fines, the 'Policia Federal Mexico' Ransomware claims that the computer user needs to pay a fine of two thousand pesos (about $150 USD at the current exchange rate) using PaySafeCard or Ukash.
