Both Ukash and Paysafecard are well-known, reputable and fair payment processing companies that are especially popular in European countries. They operate via Ukash or Paysafecard voucher (PIN) codes, thus users can pay for certain products or services by means of indication of this special voucher code in the respective fields. Regretfully, modern hackers and online frauds actively use the names and the services of these good companies for reaching their evil plots. Thus, they’ve developed several variants of desktop screen lockers that are also known as ransomware viruses. Once these hijackers attack the PC the entire system turns out to be locked by some strange warning allegedly coming from the police and other law enforcement bodies of some particular country. Of course, such warning has nothing to do with the police organizations. Instead, this is a typical product developed by online crooks who aims to scare users tremendously into sharing some of these Ukash or Paysafecard voucher codes with them. This is all presented as supposed fine that users allegedly pay in favor of the local state budgets because of their illegal activities supposedly revealed to be performed at the attacked machine. Without hesitation, ransomware virus lockers today occupy quite a tremendous niche in the total “malware pie” of the cyber world today.
Indicating the Ukash or Paysafecard voucher or PIN codes as instructed in the text of ransomware lockers is a serious mistake. When one agrees to perform such instructions as recommended by the crooks, the chances are that users will never get their money back. Likewise, please do not disclose these voucher codes by sending them onto emails, as might be also instructed by certain ransomware lockers. Once again, we emphasize your attention on the fact that Ukash and Paysafecard are well-established companies and they aren’t associated with development, promotion and distribution of these ransomware infections.
Many users today suffer from various types of ransomware lockers. The problem is that rebooting the computer doesn’t help them, and the locked status still persists. In order to unblock their PCs they need to refer to the complete and step-by-step guide that will explain all the details of this important procedure. We’ve developed the guide below that will explain the basis milestones for successful removal of all Ukash and Paysafecard ransomwares. Please follow them carefully, without omitting any essential step.
