Luxorr Police Ransomware

Luxorr Police Ransomware Description

Type: Adware

The Luxorr Police Ransomware is one of the dozens of known variants of the Reveton ransomware Trojan. This specific variant targets computers located in Luxemburg. These kinds of attacks have skyrocketed since their initial variants. While initial ransomware Trojan attacks were primitive and easy to bypass, Luxorr Police Ransomware belongs to modern variants that are difficult to remove and have advanced capabilities such as the ability to disable Safe Mode and use the victim's web cam in order to make their attacks scarier for inexperienced computer users. These malware attacks have been a highly effective way for criminals to generate huge profits in recent year, and now have spread to more than thirty countries all around the world.

The Luxorr Police Ransomware only infects computers located in this country. This is possible because the Reveton Trojan is capable of detecting the infected computer's geographical location. The Luxorr Police Ransomware does this by determining the infected computer's IP address and other information and then installing a ransomware variant corresponding to the infected machine's region. Like all Police Ransomware Trojans, the Luxorr Police Ransomware infection displays a fake message from Luxemburg's police. While the Luxorr Police Ransomware uses Luxemburg's language and police force emblems to scare its victims, computers in other countries will be infected with variants written in their country's language and impersonating their country's police.

How Criminals Use the Luxorr Police Ransomware Trojan to Steal Your Money

The main danger involved in malware attacks like the Luxorr Police Ransomware Trojan is in their Winlocker component. This is a malicious component that locks down the infected computer, preventing access to its Desktop and files installed on the infected computer. The Luxorr Police Ransomware message claims that the infected computer was locked by the Luxemburg's police due to illegal activities such as viewing forbidden online pornography or downloading copyrighted content. After threatening the victim with jail time and thousands of Euros in legal fines, the Luxorr Police Ransomware claims that the victim can avoid all of this by paying a single fine of a few hundred Euros. It is important to be aware that paying this fine will do nothing to remove the Luxorr Police Ransomware infection from your computer or restore access to your files and software. Instead, remove the Luxorr Police Ransomware infection with the help of a reliable anti-malware program.
