“Pozornost! Vaš osebni računalnik blokiran” warning window that suddenly appears on the desktops of the PCs localized in Slovenia. It is the first sign that a PC is infected with UKASH ransomware. You are claimed that this warning notification is sent by Slovenian Police department which deals with Cyber Crime investigations. You are tried to be fooled that your PC is involved in illegal activities such as viewing child pornography or storing and downloading illegal music, videos. Therefore the access to your PC has been locked. You are told to pay 100 euro of fine for these illegal actions via Ukash payment. If you do not effect the payment within 48 hours, Slovenia Police will take further action that may result arresting you and permanent removal of all the data on your computer. This post is aimed to tell you the whole truth and prevent you from paying your hard-earned money for the benefit of cyber crooks.
