Cheshire Police Authority virus
Why do some people speak of Cheshire Police Authority as a virus? Of course, this is not a correct way of referring to this decent UK’s organization. The problem is that hackers widely use the name of this decent law-enforcement agency as a way of scaring and tricking users. In fact, they’ve developed a new ransomware program that targets the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland today. This ransomware belongs to the Urausy virus family. When this scam enters the computer the whole desktop gets hijacked by this fake warning supposedly coming from the Cheshire Police Authority, even though in reality it has nothing to do with this decent organization.
Cheshire Police Authority virus attacks computers that have poor security protection status. When this happens nobody can actually notice the malware infiltration process. The scam blocks the whole desktop of your computer and you can’t do anything with it but to use the hard reset button. The keyboard is also disabled. However, no matter how many times you restart your system using the hard reset button, the same locked status actually remains, giving no other options for user but to be really scared with the horrifying message depicted at the screenshot above. However, you must now worry too much! The thing is that you’ve never done anything illegal through your PC, right? Well, then you should not even be scared with this message at all. It is the product of cyber hackers who want to convince you to share some of your earnings with them. Hackers want to instruct you to pay so-called fine for doing the things you’ve never actually done.
So, please ignore the scary alert supposedly coming from the Cheshire Police Authority. This agency isn’t associated with the scary message you see above. Don’t pay any money in favor of hackers through Ukash of Paysafecard payment systems. Instead, please follow the detailed malware removal guide you see described below.
