EU Police Virus

What is EU Police Virus?

EU Police Virus is a computer infection that blocks your desktop access and demands a ransom fee. Hence, it is called ransomware. EU Police Virus is distributed by trojans that enter your system surreptitiously and then perform specific changes within the registry that allows this ransomware infection to start automatically when you turn on your computer. Once the program is running, it locks you out of your desktop, and displays a fake security notification about with fake charges against you. You have to remove EU Police Virus right now, and do not even think of paying the ransom.

Where does EU Police Virus come from?

EU Police Virus is another infection from the Ukash virus group of computer threats. They lock down users computers, claiming that users have violated multiple laws and now they need to pay a ransom fee. There are countless versions of these infections, all localized for different countries, targeting as many users as possible. EU Police Virus is intended for the European Union, but it can also be modified according to which country you reside in - not all EU member states have euro for their currency. Thus, the ransom fee required by EU Police Virus can be displayed in pounds as well. You will find an extract of the fake security notification displayed by EU Police Virus below:


Unauthorized activity has been detected on your computer!
Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.
Article 274 - Copyright. A fine or imprisonment for the term of up to 4 years (The use or sharing of copyright Video, Music, software).

To unlock your computer and to avoid other legal consequences, you are liable to pay a fine in the amount of £100. The penalty is to be paid during 24 hours from the moment when your PC was locked!

EU Police Virus asks you to pay the fine via Ukash, and this alternative payment system enables the malware to collect money even from those users who do not have bank accounts. However, Ukash is a genuine alternative payment system and it has nothing to do with the cyber criminals who are responsible for spreading this infection.

Your computer will not be unlocked even if you pay the ransom fee. You have not committed any crime, so you must remove EU Police Virus from your computer right now, following the instructions below:
