New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware is a malware threat, which is identified as ransomware. New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware targets PC users from New Zealand. New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware is distributed to vulnerable computers with the help of a 'Police' Trojan. New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware shows a false full-screen pop-up image/notification allegedly sent by the government agencies such as New Zealand E-Crime Lab, New Zealand Police, Centre for Infrastructure Protection (CCIP), and Interpol in an effort to dupe affected Internet users into thinking they have committed cybercrime. The tricky pop-up alert shown by New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware on the screen of the compromised PC states that the computer is locked because the PC user has been performing illegitimate actions pertaining to copyrighted content and pornography. The fake pop-up warning message used by New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware is created by the relevant Trojan, which locks the victimized computer. To unlock it, New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware asks the victim to pay a fine of NZD $100 via Ukash. However, the paid fine won't help victimized PC users to restore access to their computers. Do not believe any information delivered by the frightening pop-up alert used by New Zealand E-Crime Lab Ransomware and pay the fine.
