What is Police-service.net?

Police-service.net is a malicious web domain that paralyzes your browser and does not allow you to access other websites under the pretense that you have violated several laws. Needless to say, that all the accusations listed on the notification are false and you need to exit the malicious window once you notice that your safe internet browsing experience has been compromised.

Police-service.net is actually a Javascript that can affect Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers. It could be considered a browser hijacker, because it takes over your browser and does not allow you to close the window or open a new tab, but the question is whether the infection really resides on your computer.
