.LPD BM.I stands for Landespolizeidirection Bundes Ministerium für Inneres. This is the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Austria. The picture that you see below, as well as the scary warning brought by this image, are not associated with Landespolizeidirection Bundes Ministerium für Inneres at all. Instead, what you see is a fake warning that has been developed by the team of cyber hackers who really want to gain possession over the part of your funds in order to become richer. Surely, such methods of gaining profits aren’t fair. What’s more, they bring essential damage for your computer.
Once .LPD BM.I ransomware attacks your PC the whole desktop becomes locked (hijacked). Really, you can’t do anything with your computer but to use the hard reset button to reboot it. The trick is that even this method doesn’t work. The computer is still blocked with a fake .LPD BM.I warning that says this:
Landespolizeidirection Bundes Ministerium für Inneres
ACHTUNG! Ihr Computer ist aus einem oder mehreren der unten aufgeführten Gründe gesperrt.
Sie haben gegen das Gesetz über «Urheberrecht und verwandte Schutzrechte» (Video, Musik, Software) verstoßen und unrechtmäßig urheberrechtliche Inhalte genutzt, bzw. verbreitet und somit gegen Art 128 des Strafgesetzbuches der Bundesrepublik Österreich verstoßen.
Art. 128 des Strafgesetzbuches zieht eine Strafe in Höhe von 200 bis 500 Mindestlöhnen oder eine Freiheitsstrafe von 2 bis 8 Jahren in Betracht.
In spite oft he fact that the contents you see above (quoted) might indeed sound quite scary for you, please ignore this faulty message. It is not connected to .LPD BM.I at all. As we’ve mentioned already, what you see is the fake alert that has been elaborated by the pack of cyber frauds for the goal of earning unfair money. Hackers prompt users to pay the fine for doing the crimes they’ve never committed. The scary warning accuses users of watching extremely explicit illegal information over the Internet, downloading illegal copies of audio, video files and software, etc., sending massive unsolicited spam and performing other crimes online. The malware tells that you need to pay this fake fine (but real money) in order to unlock your computer. The point is that there’s no any guarantee of the crooks that the system will be unlocked.
Don’t pay any funds through Ukash of Paysafecard payment systems if you see the scary warning on your screen as shown above. Doing so is a great mistake, because the funds will never be refunded by the crooks. Instead of obeying their malicious instructions, please follow the malware removal guide for ransomware elimination as described below.
