‘Dansk Rigspolitiet’ Ransomware

Posted: July 29, 2013

Dansk Rigspolitiet Ransomware Screenshot 1The 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware is a fake Police Trojan that displays legal warnings in the name of the Danish national police, but actually doesn't have any kind of legal authorization for its attacks – which include creating pop-ups, as well as blocking your access to various basic programs and Windows interface features. The 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware's attacks are easily noted as an extension of a large multi-national ransomware campaign that recently has assaulted many countries around the world, and the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware never should be paid or treated as though its legal warnings hold any basis in reality whatsoever. The measured use of anti-malware tools and basic security strategies are your most reliable means of removing the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware, which is estimated to be being distributed by drive-by-downloads and other non-consensual methods.

Don't Be Scared of the 'National Police' Coming to Get Your Computer

The 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware is a relatively obvious clone of related Police Ransomware Trojans specialized for other countries besides Denmark, such as the 'Canadian Association Of Chiefs Of Police' Virus, the 'FEDPOL BundesKriminalPolizei' Ransomware, the 'Ministry of Public Safety New Zealand' Virus, the ''Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware, the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware, the 'Arma dei Carabinieri' Ransomware and the 'Služba Kriminální Policie a Vyšetřování’ Ransomware. Even though the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware uses the appropriate language for Denmark and displays some basic Danish symbolism (such as the nation's coat of arms), the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware isn't a law-abiding program and doesn't need to be treated as anything other than malware.

The 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware's pop-up alert is its signature symptom and the means by which most victims first become aware of its attacks against their PCs. This pop-up is set to display when Windows starts and, unlike a normal pop-up alert, can't be closed or minimized. By using this fake alert to accuse you of using your PC for crimes like violating copyright laws, the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware hopes to intimidate you into paying a fake legal fee through either Paysafecard or Ukash – both of which SpywareRemove.com malware experts have long since noted as favorite transaction methods for fake Police Trojans just like the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware.

The 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware's pop-up and related attacks also will prevent you from using other applications or accessing your Windows desktop, which makes removing the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware an initially difficult task. However, these issues aren't a reason to pay the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware's ransom, which will not unlock your computer – or do anything, in fact, other than make you poorer than otherwise and fund criminals in their malware campaign sprees.

Playing Judge, Jury and Exeuctioner to 'the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware's Faux Police Antics

Removing the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware always is something that should be done at the first opportunity, but the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware usually will block the relevant security and anti-malware programs that could delete the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware safely. With this fact kept in mind, you first should consider disabling the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware through standard security tactics – such as booting into the Command Prompt or booting from a safe USB thumb drive – that will give you an uninterrupted environment for scanning your computer.

In either case, SpywareRemove.com malware experts find that appropriate security software and basic Web security practices will help block most the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware infection routes.
