AKM Police Ransomware

AKM Police Ransomware Description

Type: Adware

The AKM Police Ransomware is a dangerous ransomware infection that impersonates an association that protects the rights of composers and musicians. AKM Police Ransomware is, in fact, part of a well known scam that has infected millions of computers in more than thirty computers all around the world. Unlike primitive versions of this scam, AKM Police Ransomware has advanced capabilities that make AKM Police Ransomware more difficult to remove and that make its attack more effective at tricking inexperienced computer users. AKM Police Ransomware locks access to the infected computer and has the capacity to disable crucial Windows components like the Task Manager, Safe Mode and System Restore. AKM Police Ransomware even has the ability to control the victim's web cam in order to make it seem as if the victim is being monitored by the police.

AKM Police Ransomware uses a targeted attack that detects its victim's geographical location. Then, AKM Police Ransomware displays a message from a copyright law society in the target's country. While AKM Police Ransomware attacks computers in German-speaking countries, computer users may be bombarded with messages from similar organizations such as KODA or GEMA. However, all variants of the AKM Police Ransomware infection carry out the same scam. They are intended to scare novice PC users into paying a pricy fee by locking the victim's computer and accusing the victim of illegal activity.

After AKM Police Ransomware infects a computer, AKM Police Ransomware blocks access to the victim's files. When the infected computer is turned on, it will display a fake message from AKM claiming that the victim's computer was involved in distributing and viewing copyrighted material and that it was blocked by the police. After threatening the victim with jail time and huge fines of thousands of euros, AKM Police Ransomware goes on to claim that the victim can avoid all of this by paying a fine through Ukash or another money transfer service. ESG security researchers strongly advise against this. Paying the AKM Police Ransomware fine will do nothing to remove AKM Police Ransomware from your computer. To regain control of your computer, use an alternate boot method to bypass the AKM Police Ransomware message and then wipe out this threat with an anti-malware application that may be relied on.
