‘Cyber Command of Oregon’ Ransomware

‘Cyber Command of Oregon’ Ransomware Description

The 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware is a variant of the 'Cyber Command of [State Name]' Ransomware, a sub-division of the Urausy family of fake Police Trojans. As a United States-specialized PC threat, the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware detects appropriate victims through their IP addresses and displays erroneous legal warnings that block their desktops. This attack is intended to force you to pay a fee that supposedly removes the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware's Windows lockdown. However, malware experts stress that the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware is an illegal Trojan and never should be paid; instead, removing the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware with standardized anti-malware procedures and software is the simplest way to thaw its system lockdown.

The Blind Spy on Your Online History

The 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware is a new spinoff of previous Police Ransomware Trojans known for singling out victims from various states in the USA. The 'Cyber Command of Nevada' Ransomware,' the'Cyber Command of New York' Ransomware, the 'Cyber Command of California' Ransomware, the 'Cyber Command of South Texas' Ransomware and the 'USA Cyber Crime Investigations' Ransomware are examples of members of the same family. Although the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware displays a pop-up warning that's intended to make it seem like the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware has the authority of your local government, the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware actually is malware and completely illegal – like all of its other relatives for states other than Oregon.

The 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware's main function is to block your access to your desktop (and other Windows programs) by displaying a borderless browser pop-up. This pop-up warning claims that your computer has been found to be associated with illegal actions related to Internet usage such as downloading pirated software, but the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware actually may launch its attack even on computers that are completely innocent of such misdeeds. SpywareRemove.com malware experts also emphasize that the 'legal fee' the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware demands should not be paid and will not help you unlock your PC.

The Key to the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware's Desktop Handcuffs

Like other fake Police Trojans with a tendency to block your use of other applications, the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware is categorized as a high-level security risk and always should be removed from your PC as fast as possible. To work around the system blockade cause by the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware's pop-up and related functions, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers encourage the use of basic security features like Safe Mode or a system boot from a peripheral drive (USB, DVD, etc.).

The use of anti-malware software for deleting the 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware also is highly recommended. The 'Cyber Command of Oregon' Ransomware and other members of its family often are associated with infections that consist of multiple PC threats, including, in many cases, backdoor Trojans.
