This infection is a piece of ransomware that locks the system down in order to manipulate you. Moreover, it pops up a fake notification saying that the computer is paralyzed due to your illegal activities to achieve the criminals’ ultimate goal, which is to convince you to give your money up.

The money is expected to be paid after you get shocked by the content of the message displayed. The message looks as if it was related to Europol, which deals with international crime. The name of this European law enforcement agency has been taken to convince computer users that everything that is stated in the warning is indisputable.
