Guide to remove Policia Federal virus (ransomware)
Sad news stroke Mexico these days. Hackers have invented a new virus specifically to target computers in this country. This virus is called ransomware. It locks attacked computers with a fake warning, supposedly coming from Policia Federal. Yet, this alert has nothing to do with the police of Mexico. It is a scam that was developed by the pack of cyber frauds who aim to get possession over your funds. The trick is that this is done by scaring users with the fake accusation contained in the text of the ransomware locker. Needless to mention, it is of crucial importance to have a guide that explains how to remove Policia Federal scam from your system.
The closeness of Mexico to the US means that probably some computers in the United States of America might be attacked by this serious ransomware as well. However, users in the USA will probably not be surprised. They know what ransomware is after they heard about FBI GreenDot MoneyPak ransomware and the Department of Justice fake warning. In both of the cases the warnings presented supposedly from these organizations are fake and not associated with them at all.
Speaking about Policia Federal ransomware, the tactics of ransomware makers haven’t changed dramatically. Once the scareware attacks the system it immediately locks its desktop utterly. The locker doesn’t let users work freely with their computers. Any attempt to reboot the system turns out to be completely vain. The system remains locked, irrespective of the number of reboot attempts. The fake accusation comes up about user allegedly performing some crimes, being supposedly evidenced by the police of Mexico. The virus makers prompt users to pay the fine through Ukash or Paysafecard payment systems, promising that the system will thus be unlocked. However, we strongly doubt this fact.
