Public Security Directorate Ransomware: a Threat More Predatory Than Any Falcon

The Public Security Directorate Ransomware uses fake 'police' warning pop-ups to convince its victims to transfer money through CashU – the same methodology that SpywareRemove.com malware experts also have observed in the Public Security Directorate Ransomware's close relatives. Although the Public Security Directorate Ransomware's pop-ups are designed to be specific to the nation of Jordan and include, for example, depictions of that country's flag, other Police Trojans from the Public Security Directorate Ransomware's family have been known to attack countries all over the world. Non-Middle Eastern examples include the Policía Nacional del Ecuador Ransomware, the France Ministère de l’Intérieur Virus, the POLIISI Osasto Tietoverkkorikollisuuden Virus and the Police Rendőrség Ransomware. Other Middle Eastern variants also include the Türk Polisi Virus, the Emniyet Genel Müdürlüğü Ransomware, the Lebanese Internal Security Forces Virus, the Palestinian Civil Police Force Virus and the Abu Dhabi Police GHQ Ransomware.

Like its numerous relatives, the Public Security Directorate Ransomware actually isn't linked to any kind of law enforcement agency – even though its pop-up alert will claim to have the authority of Jordan's police behind the Public Security Directorate Ransomware. Despite the claims of its fake legal alert, the Public Security Directorate Ransomware likewise lacks the ability to detect illegal actions related to your computer usage or unlock your computer. Under no circumstances should you pay despite the fee that the Public Security Directorate Ransomware's warning demands, which SpywareRemove.com malware analysts easily identified as a scam to transfer money into criminal possession.
