The tactics of ransomware makers have been slightly amended recently. They present their scary warnings from the local police body as some System Failure alert. Thus, the fake notification, allegedly associated with the police, is headed exactly the same – System Failure. Then the body of the police is indicated, depending on the target country of ransomware attack. Be careful with such fake System Failure notification. Keep in mind that it is the direct product of cyber hackers who want to gain the possession over your funds through tricking you into paying funds via several payment systems, such as Ukash, Paysafecard or GreenDot MoneyPak.
The tactics of this System Failure ransomware, of course, implies scaring users with a lot of deceitful (fake) accusations. The virus claims that the particular user, the owner of the locked computer, has been noticed to watch a lot of illegal content over the world wide web. Plus, the accusation is about sending massive spam, visiting the sites of terrorist organizations for the purpose of supporting them, using unlicensed software and many other illegal things. Surely, performing such crimes is bad, but the point is that in the majority of the cases users have never ever committed such crimes.
The ransomware that reports some System Failure locks the computer with its scary police warning and tells that in order to unlock the computer a fine must be paid. In reality, this is not a fine initiated by the police. This is the ransom that is paid into the pockets of the cyber frauds, the authors of this and many other ransomware lockers. In order to unlock your computer please follow the steps outlined below.
