The Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is a ransomware-based PC threat that's enabled by members of the Reveton family of Trojans, which are often launched by Citadel Trojans and other sophisticated types of malware. Common infection methods include spammed social media links and drive-by-downloads (such as the infamous Blackhole Exploit Kit). Once it's installed, the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus displays a warning message in Norwegian that claims that your computer is locked due to its affiliation with Internet crimes like illegal forms of erotica or downloads of copyrighted media. SpywareRemove.com malware analysts strongly discourage any expenditure of funds on Politiet Norge Ukash Virus's ransom fee, since the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus isn't affiliated with Norway's police form and should be considered a threat to be removed with anti-malware software immediately.
Why Nothing in Europe is Safe from Politiet Norge Ukash Virus and Its Fellow Trojans
Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is just a Norway-specific Trojan from a modern flood of ransomware-based attacks that have been found to specialize in customizing warning messages for European victims in various countries, although similar attacks have also been seen in non-European first world countries like Canada and the United States. Politiet Norge Ukash Virus relies on the well-used excuse of pretending to lock down a computer that's already guilty of committing online crimes, although SpywareRemove.com malware researchers stress that the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus can't detect actual crimes originating from your computer.
While the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus pretends to be an emissary of Norway's police force, the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus doesn't have any interest in doing anything other than frightening you into spending money through Ukash or Paysafecard – both of which are commonly-used payment methods by many types of ransomware Trojans (such as Athens Security Prosecution of Electronic Crime Ransomware, the United States Department of Justice Ransomware or Polisen Enhetnen för Databrott Ransomware). As can be guessed at from these examples, while the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus is particular to Norway, all but identical variants of Politiet Norge Ukash Virus can be found attacking other countries, especially in Europe.
Putting the Cuffs Where They Belong: On the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus
The Politiet Norge Ukash Virus's pop-up warning may appear to be legitimate at first, but a careful inspection will reveal that all of the details that the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus uses have been lifted from similar ransomware Trojans with simple Norway-localizing details switched to make the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus appear like a different program. As a digital fraud, the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus's legal threats can be ignored, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers especially advise against succumbing to the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus's illegal request for a Paysafecard or Ukash-based cash payment.
Delivery mechanisms for Politiet Norge Ukash Virus have a high chance of involving multiple PC threats, including Citadel Trojans, Reveton Trojans and online delivery platforms like the Blackhole Exploit Kit. At the time of this writing, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts have found the most common origin point for attacks resulting in infection by Trojans like Politiet Norge Ukash Virus use spammed website links that use social engineering techniques to disguise themselves as benign links.
The Politiet Norge Ukash Virus must be disabled before you can use any anti-malware software to scan your computer and delete the Politiet Norge Ukash Virus along with any other Trojans. Booting in Safe Mode should be attempted as a reliable means of disabling malware like Politiet Norge Ukash Virus, although extra steps, such as loading Windows from a USB device, also may be necessary.
