GVU Virus

What is GVU Virus?

Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (Federal Office for Information Security) is a government agency in Germany that manages communication security. GVU Virus is a malicious ransomware infection that pretends to be an official representative of this agency. This computer threat arrives at your system via drive-by downloads and Trojan infections, and it takes only one click to get stuck with GVU Virus. This ransomware application is customized to threaten German users and/or anyone who has German IP address. Unlike most of the infections that can be dealt with before it gets really serious, GVU Virus doesn't even give you time to prepare - it strikes full force immediately.test 100% FREE spyware scan and

In other words - GVU Virus slaps a threatening security notification all over your screen, saying that your computer has been locked due to illegal activity. Part of the message in German sounds like this:

Ihr Computer wurden gesperrt

Ihr Computer wurde durch das System der automatischen Informationskontrolle gesperrt

Die Ursache dafür kann wie folgt sein:
1. Ihr Computer wurde zur Betrachtung von verbotenen Webseiten benutzt
2. Ihr Computer wurde zur Betrachtung von Webseiten benutzt, die Elemente der Kinderpornographie enthalten

Basically, GVU Virus says that your computer has been locked due to illegal Internet activity. It says you were watching videos that contain child pornography, or that you have pirated media on your hard drive for which you might face various criminal charges. Naturally, GVU Virus offers you a way out as well - it says that as long as you pay 100 Euro, your computer will be unlocked and you will avoid being charged with the alleged "crimes". In this case GVU Virus behaves just like the rest of the Ukash virus family infections, including FBI Moneypak, Metropolitan Police Virus and others.

You have to realize that the only thing GVU Virus is after is your money, and you mustn't pay a cent to it. Otherwise you will only lose your hard-earned money while your computer will remain locked - GVU Virus has no intention of unlocking it, because its gold mine will be gone for good.

You must remove GVU Virus from your computer if you intend to keep on working with it. Although it is different from rogue or Trojan removal, removing ransomware is not that hard.
