The France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is a pop-up alert that's created by a variant of the Reveton Trojan or (as it's referred to casually) the Ukash Virus. Like the similar but less visually sophisticated Votre ordinateur est bloqué Gendarmerie Ransomware, the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus displays a fake pop-up that claims that your computer has been locked by the government of France due to your illegal activities. The truth is that the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus isn't related to any type of police or government and doesn't have any goal except to extort money through Ukash or Paysafecard. While the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus cites various legal sources to make victims give away their money in a blind panic, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend that you ignore the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus's warnings and use anti-malware programs to delete the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus, just like any other variant of a Reveton Trojan.
France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus: the Unsubtle Eye in the Cyber-Sky
France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is immediately noticeable due to displaying a fraudulent warning message as soon as your PC is restarted (which, in most cases, is done after the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus's installation). The France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus also is one of several new variants of ransomware Trojans that capture the infected PC's Webcam footage and insert it into small windows in their pop-up alerts. This gives the appearance that the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is monitoring everything that you do with government permission – although SpywareRemove.com malware researchers can confirm that this isn't the case.
France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus's warning message, like similar Reveton-based Trojans, claims that your computer has been locked because of Internet-based crimes that it was used to commit. The France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus also insists on Ukash or Paysafecard-based payment as the remedy to this situation, even though the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus isn't capable of unlocking your computer regardless of whether or not you pay this fake fine.
Other evidence of the evolving sophistication of pop-ups from France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus and similar ransomware Trojans include warnings about payment being required within two days, numerical buttons that supposedly can be used to input an unlock code and the inclusion of various colorful icons demonstrating the (fake) payment and unlocking process. Ultimately, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers look at France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus as an indication of the advancing nature of ransomware Trojans in Europe as including more and more social engineering tactics to grab wallets and hand them over to criminals.
Destroying the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus's Credibility Along with Its Hold on Your Hard Drive
The France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is recognizable as one of the newest members of the Reveton family of ransomware Trojans due to its inclusion of many traits that have been seen, although often not simultaneously, in other Trojans of that family. Even though the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is specific to France (and detects your IP address to confirm your computer's country of origin), variants of France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus have been seen in many other countries. Wealthy countries in Europe are most at risk, but almost all of Europe, as well as the US and Canada, have been victimized by similar attacks.
Since it will be impossible to access your security programs while France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus is open, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts suggest disabling the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus as the first step towards removing the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus entirely. Booting your computer from a removable USB drive or booting into Safe Mode should be sufficient to prevent the France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus and its pop-up from appearing. Any good anti-malware program should be up to the job of deleting France Ministère de l'Intérieur Virus safely once these precautions have been taken.
