Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware

Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware Description

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware is a Police Ransomware Trojan that attacks PCs based in Jordan by displaying fake police alerts. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware's pop-ups accuse you of using your computer for illegal activities and ask you to pay a fine before the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware will allow you to regain access to your desktop and any other applications. Despite its pretensions, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware isn't a real tool of Jordan's police force, and SpywareRemove.com malware experts strongly warn against paying the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware's fake legal fine. The message alleging to come from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware should be the first reaction you have to a confirmed ransomware threat, and the second reaction should be to remove the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware with whatever anti-malware program you trust.

A Kingdom's Invasion Through the Digital Means

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware is a close relative of other Police Trojans that have been confirmed to attack countries all over the world, with some of the latest campaigns extending to South America and (as in the case of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware) the Middle East. The Emniyet Genel Müdürlüğü Ransomware, the Public Security Directorate Ransomware, the Abu Dhabi Police GHQ Ransomware, the Lebanese Internal Security Forces Virus, the Palestinian Civil Police Force Virus, the Policía Nacional del Ecuador Ransomware and the Malta Police Force MPF Ransomware are examples of Police Trojans closely related to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware. The Middle Eastern of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware's family can be considered the CashU Virus, according to its preference for CashU-based ransoms.

With the exception of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware readjusting its fake police alerts to apply to residents of Jordan, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers haven't observed any significant differences between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware's attacks and those of its fellows. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware is installed by disingenuous methods that often include the abuse of drive-by-download attacks that are enabled by website-hosted exploit kits, and displays its police pop-up as soon as your computer restarts (which it may do automatically).

This pop-up uses a combination of boilerplate legal warning messages and stock symbols (such as the flag and coat of arms of Jordan or, for some reason, the Windows logo) to convince its victims that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware has been forced to lock your computer for various crimes related to it. Realistically, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware will launch this attack even if your computer never has been used for any illegal purpose, and SpywareRemove.com malware experts emphasize that even if you do pay the fake legal fee that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware demands, your computer won't be unlocked.

Seeing Your Personal Realm Free of Trojan Invasions

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware's screen-covering pop-up will prevent you from accessing the rest of your Windows interface or your other programs, but there's no need to think that unlocking the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware is impossible. Safe Mode usually is the first method that SpywareRemove.com malware analysts suggest for disabling PC threats, but in the case of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware, you may need to boot from an entirely separate hard drive (such as a USB flash drive).

No matter what you may or may not have been using your computer to do, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware always should be deleted hastily, as a Police Trojan that's just as harmful as a virus, worm or other types of ransomware. Because the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware will make system changes that also will need to be reverted, anti-malware applications generally should be used to remove the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Ransomware and all traces of its presence, along with its pop-up.
