Right now many computers are attacked with a serious ransomware application that locks the entire computer (either laptop or desktop) and asks for the ransom to unlock it. This virus is also known as Metropolitan Police scam. It is said to be allegedly originated by Specialist Crime Directorate of Police Central e-crime Unit (UK’s Metropolitan Police). However, this information is totally fake. Metropolitan Police has nothing to do with originating such misleading, deceitful and scary notification. The cyber frauds are indeed very instrumental in inventing new ways of tricking users and prompting them into sharing some of their earnings with crooks. Regretfully, the industry of ransomware-type malwares grows by leaps and bounds, even compared to rogue security software share. Thus, here comes the logical question about successful removal of such malicious tools and lockers.
