Dirección General de la Policía Virus

What is Dirección General de la Policía Virus?

Dirección General de la Policía Virus is a computer infection which you would not like to have on your computer. It enters the system without your consent and locks it down to make you think that the computer is no longer operable. In order to unlock the system, you are expected to pay a fine of 100 Euros via Paysafecard or Ukash. The virus has a version called FBI Cybercrime Division Virus which demand that the money be paid via MoneyPak, so as you can see, criminals can chose any money transaction service they like to trick you into thinking that you really  need to pay the ransom money.

What should I do next?

If your computer is infected with Dirección General de la Policía Virus, the first thing that you should do is ignore the content of the message that is displayed on the screen. The headline of the message shows that you are dealing with the Spanish police; however, this law enforcement agency does contact the suspects in this way. Moreover, you should disregard the fact that the warning also contains the emblem of European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) which is not related to the spread of the message. Pay no attention to the demand that you should pay the fine, and instead of wasting your money, remove Dirección General de la Policía Virus.


Some excerpts from the bogus message:

Usted ha violado «el derecho de autor y lost derechos conexos» (video, música, software) y ha utilizado de una manera illegal con la distribución de contenido los derechos de autor, infringiendo así el artículo 128 del Criminal Code del Reino de España.

El importe de la multa es de €100.

Cuando usten paga la multa, su OP (ordenador) sera debloqueado durante de 1 a 72 horas después de que el dinero arriba en la cuenta del Estado.

As you already know that you should not trust Dirección General de la Policía Virus, you should remove it from the system without delay.
