Europol Interpol Ransomware is a malware infection identified as ransomware, which strives to pilfer money from unsuspecting PC users in Germany and other German-speaking countries. Europol Interpol Ransomware is distributed with the help a 'Police' Trojan, which locks the compromised PC and asks the victim for a fine to be paid to unlock the computer. Europol Interpol Ransomware blocks the desktop and the whole computer and does not allow the target PC user access the machine. Europol Interpol Ransomware covers the screen of the infected computer with a bogus pop-up image/alert 'Ihr Internet Service Provider blockiert', which speaks in the name of the Europol and Interpol (European Police Office and International Criminal Police Organization) and accuses attacked computer users of breach of the certain laws. The scary pop-up notification of Europol Interpol Ransomware states that the computer user has been visiting pirated content websites, sending spam emails or downloading and dispersing copyrighted content to other PCs. Europol Interpol Ransomware demands a ransom of 100 Euro from computer users to be paid via Paysafecard to regain access to the PC and evade imprisonment. You should not pay the ransom because you will lose your money and won't be enabled to access your PC. Use a reputable anti-malware program to detect and remove the 'Police' Trojan and, thus, rid your PC of Europol Interpol Ransomware.
