‘Computer Crime Prosecution Section’ Ransomware Description

Computer Crime Prosecution Section Ransomware Screenshot 1A minor spinoff of past Police Ransomware Trojans like the 'NSA Internet Surveillance Program' Ransomware and the 'Your Computer is Locked' Ransomware, the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware continues its stereotypical ransomware attacks of blocking any infected PCs with fake legal warnings. These legal warnings inform you that the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware has been forced to block your computer for its involvement in illegal Internet activities, but the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware's attacks are launched against any PC that the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware can infect and without any due regard for the innocence or guilt of the PC user. Naturally, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers can't recommend paying the fake legal fee that the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware insists on, and suggest traditional anti-malware tools and strategies for deleting the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware without its Windows-locking attack getting in your way.

The 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware: the Fraudulent Prosecution that Rests... On Your Desktop

Contrary to the information displayed in its pop-up warning, the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware neither is a US government-authorized program nor a program that attacks computers used for criminal purposes. Instead, the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware infects any PC that the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware can compromise through distribution methods like drive-by-downloads, thereafter displaying legal alerts about copyright infringement and similar activities that may or may not apply to your computer. Two notable inclusions in the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware's alert, (although ones that aren't limited to the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware alone) include its use of a webcam-monitoring sub-window (which records your webcam input to make you believe that the authorities are observing you) and a reference to PRISM, the government surveillance program that made headlines due to the efforts of Edward Snowden.

However, once you learn to ignore the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware's fake legal details, it can be discerned that the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware's alert is no different from any other browser pop-up, with the exception of being modified to cover your desktop and prevent you from closing it. While the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware doesn't have any legal right to lock Windows, the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware will demand money through MoneyPak for restoring your PC back to normal – a ransom that SpywareRemove.com malware researchers emphatically don't recommend paying.

Prosecuting Your Desktop Persecutor

Because the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware doesn't have any legal justification for locking your PC and is very likely to be a significant security risk, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers encourage removing the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware as soon as possible through traditional anti-malware methods. These can include using anti-malware scanners from within Safe Mode or, if necessary, booting your PC from a separate USB device to circumvent the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware's Windows lockdown. The 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware also may implement other attacks against your PC without any obvious symptoms, such as attempts to install other malicious software or steal confidential data.

In general, the attacks that are responsible for the actual distribution of the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware and similar Police Ransomware Trojans involve malicious or hacked sites that host drive-by-downloads. The Blackhole Exploit Kit is one particularly prominent example of a PC threat that has been used to install ransomware like the 'Computer Crime Prosecution Section' Ransomware automatically and imperceptibly. SpywareRemove.com malware experts, as usual, note that anti-malware products tend to be effective at discovering and blocking these automated attacks, which may otherwise go beneath your notice.
