Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware

Posted: September 2, 2012

Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware Screenshot 1Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware is a ransomware Trojan that displays fake police alerts that are localized for Sweden, simultaneously locking down your computer (by blocking other programs) and insisting that you pay a legal fine to remedy the situation. Even though Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's pop-up warning accuses your PC of being involved in pornography-related crimes, ESG malware researchers haven't found any signs that Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware is linked to actual Swedish law enforcement, nor have they seen circumstances indicative of Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware detecting genuine criminal activity. With the look of a standard computer-based ransom scam, Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware should be disabled and then removed with suitable anti-malware programs without so much of a dime of your money leaving your pocket.

Why Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware Abuses Geolocating Techniques for Misdeeds

After its installation by surreptitious means, the initial attack method for Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware will attempt to identify the infected PC's country by looking at its IP address. While this means of divining a PC user's location can be dodged by those wise in the ways of IP forwarding and masking techniques, the average web surfer usually will be identified by their home region. An appropriate pop-up alert is loaded by the ransomware in question, with Sweden-based victims getting a full screen of Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's pop-up warning.

This pop-up alert includes the PC user's IP address, country and even a capture of the PC's webcam input that's displayed in a 'recording' window – the latter apparently was included to make it look as though your actions are being monitored by law enforcement. Along with these unnerving tidbits, the main body of Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's alert will claim that you've been caught participating in online crimes, such as viewing child pornography. However, ESG malware researchers note that there are no known instances of any law enforcement agency using hostile software in the manner of Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware to lock down the PCs of minor criminals like pornography traffickers.

Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's lengthy warning goes on to list extreme consequences for your supposed 'crimes,' including heavy fees and potential jail time. Nonetheless, threats are just bluffs to make you pay a relatively small (but still completely illegal) fine via Ukash, in the fashion of Ukash Virus family members and similar ransomware Trojans. ESG malware research team recommends that you avoid paying this fee entirely, since Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware isn't affiliated with real Swedish law enforcement and has no ability to do anything other than what Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware is already doing by blocking your computer activities.

What You Can Do to Slip Out of Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's Handcuffs

Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware may be capable of blocking other programs as long as Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware is open, but disabling Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware isn't nearly as difficult as you can think. If you have access to a USB device, ESG malware experts recommend loading a bootable OS on the device and using it to start your PC. This will let you scan your PC and remove Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware with an anti-malware product of your choice without having to work your way past an encounter with Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware's pop-up alert.

While ESG malware experts note that Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware targets Swedish PC users specifically, Den Svenska Polisen IT-Sakerhet Ransomware also bears a heavy resemblance to similar Ukash Virus-like ransomware Trojans from other countries, including Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus, 'Votre ordinateur est bloqué' Belgium Ransomware, the West Yorkshire Ransomware, the Gema 'Access to your computer was denied' Virus and the International Police Association (I.P.A.) Virus.
