Federal Police Ukash Virus Description
The Federal Police Ukash Virus is a classification for a family of ransomware Trojans that specialize their pop-up alerts for the country of the PCs that they’ve infected. By pretending to be affiliated with the Australian Federal Police, Germany’s Bundeskriminalamt or other law enforcement agencies, Federal Police Ukash Viruses will persuade their victims to pay a fraudulent fee by any one of various methods (Ukash, MoneyPak, Paysafecard, etc). Not only do SpywareRemove.com malware researchers encourage you to NOT pay this fine, but they recommend that you treat any of the many variants of Federal Police Ukash Virus as illegal and malicious software to be expelled from your computer as soon as possible. All variants of the Federal Police Ukash Virus currently-known can be removed by appropriate anti-malware software after you’ve disabled the Federal Police Ukash Virus’s startup routine (as explained in this article).
The Global Threat with an Infinite Range of Police Uniforms for Disguises
The Federal Police Ukash Virus encompasses Trojans from all over Europe, Asia and even the Americas, many of which are functionally-identical save for the type of Trojan message that they choose to load. Members of Federal Police Ukash Virus’s family include, but aren’t limited to ‘Votre ordinateur est bloqué’ Belgium Ransomware, the ‘Der Computer Ist Fr Die Verletzung Der Gesetze Der Republik Sterreich Blockiert Worden’ Trojan, West Yorkshire Ransomware, ‘Sur votre ordinateur est infecté’ French Ransomware and others. Most Trojans for variants of Federal Police Ukash Viruses use regional police force logos to enhance the appearance of their legitimacy, although others will display a Microsoft logo against the traditional Windows login/installation background.
Trojans from any variant of a Federal Police Ukash Virus always will claim that your PC has been locked due to some form of illegal activity.
While the criminals that distribute Federal Police Ukash Virus (through drive-by-download attacks, spam and other methods) would like you to give in and pay the accompanying fee, there’s no reason to spend money on the Federal Police Ukash Virus if all you want is for the Federal Police Ukash Virus to go away so that you can resume normal usage of your PC.
Orchestrating a Suitable Jailbreak from the Federal Police Ukash Virus’s Holding Cell
All variants of the Federal Police Ukash Virus launch along with Windows and use their Trojan alerts to block you from accessing the taskbar, desktop and other aspects of your Windows interface. They also prevent you from using other applications, such as anti-malware products that could delete the Federal Police Ukash Virus safely. While the Federal Police Ukash Virus would like to make this scenario look like an unbreakable defense that forces you to pay its fine, SpywareRemove.com malware experts think otherwise and can suggest two easy solutions:
- Boot your PC into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during a reboot until the menu for Advanced Boot Options appears. From Safe Mode, the majority of unnecessary programs will be disabled, including, hopefully, the Federal Police Ukash Virus.
- In the unusual instance of Federal Police Ukash Virus being open in Safe Mode or related PC threats (such as rootkits) continuing to interfere, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers suggest booting a separate OS. USB drives can be used to load backup operating systems that will allow you the breathing room to scan your computer and remove Federal Police Ukash Virus, as well as any other malware.
