Interpol Trojan

What is Interpol Trojan?

Ransomware appears to be gaining in popularity among cyber criminals, because a new piece of malware that goes by the name of Interpol Trojan has been recently released. This time, instead of presenting the FBI, Metropolitan Police and other organizations, the name of Interpol is used. The Trojan, as well as ransomware viruses launched earlier, disables all process of the system, locks access to the Internet and displays a message claiming that the computer is locked from now on. The reason for introducing such measures is said to be your criminal activity related to copyrighted content. The underlying truth is that this warning is an attempt to obtain your money; hence, ignore the message and remove Interpol Trojan.
There are many important factors that may make you think that the Internpol message is genuine. The first and the most noticeable element of the warning is the logo of Interpol and a phrase “Department of Cybercrime”. If you really have some copyright material, you may think that you have been detected by Interpol. Moreover, such brand names as Norton, Esso, OMV, epay are used to make you think that these companies work in partnership with Interpol. Unfortunately, it just an illusion; hence, the text of the messages (find some extracts below) should be ignored:

You have been violating Copyright and Related Right Law (Vidoe, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content… […]

You have been viewing or distributing prohibited Pornographic content (Child Porno/Zoofilia and etc.).

Illegal access has been initiated from your PC without your knowledge or consent, your PC may be infected by malware, thus you are violating the law on Neglectful Use of Personal Computer. Article 210 of the Criminal Code provides for a fine of €2,000 to €8,000.

The lock down of the computer may seem to be convincing because Interpol Trojan shows the date, IP address, Internet Service Provider (ISP), a barcode and serial number or violations. Most interestingly, the Trojan provides the user with an opportunity to choose a method of paying. The fine may be paid through PayPal, Ukash and Paysafecard systems, which should not make you think that Interpol has really identified your data stored on the PC. If you remove Interpol Trojan, all impairments caused by the virus will disappear.

It is not easy to remove Interpol Trojan manually because of its complexity and capability to disable the system. Hence, we suggest you remove the infection with a reliable spyware removal application, which will manage to erase the Trojan and protect the system. You should restart the machine, immediately press F8 and log into the system through Safe Mode with Networking due to the fact that the threat does not allow you to connect to the Internet so that you can download an antispyware tool. In Safe Mode with Networking you should be able to use your browser and download SpyHunter, which, once installed, will detect and remove Interpol Trojan for good.
