Internet Police Department

What is Internet Police Department?

Internet Police Department is a dangerous computer infection. It cannot delete your files or destroy your computer’s system, but it tries to steal your money and hence it cannot be ignored. Actually, it would be rather hard to ignore Internet Police Department, because this ransomware application displays a huge notification on your screen that blocks you from accessing your desktop. The notification is supposed to make you think that you have violated Australian laws, but these accusations are too far-fetched to be taken seriously. You need to remove Internet Police Department from your computer by unlocking your desktop, and investing a powerful computer security application.

Where does Internet Police Department come from?

The infection is a part of the notorious Ukash scam that is known to produce countless infections localized for almost every country in the world. Internet Police Department itself is designated for the Australian market, just like Australian Communications and Media Authority virus, AFP Virus and others. The program is distributed by Urausy Trojan, and it means that your computer has more than one infection lurking in the background. Even if you do unlock your PC, you will still need to terminate a list of dangerous programs, so be sure to acquire a reliable antimalware tool.testtest

What does Internet Police Department do?

There is nothing new about the tactics of Internet Police Department. This ransomware application does everything its predecessors have done – first and foremost, it locks you out of your computer. Then you are presented with a false security notification, supposedly sent by Royal Australian Corps of Military Police. The notification claims that you have violated Article 161 of Commonwealth of Australia criminal law by getting involved in the distribution of child pornography:

Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.
You are accused of viewing/storage and/or dissemination of banned pornography (child pornography/zoophilia/rape etc). You have violated World Declaration on non-proliferation of child pornography. You are accused of committing the crime envisaged by Article 161 of Commonwealth of Australia criminal law.

The infection goes on to say that you have only 48 hours to pay AUD $100 in order to avoid criminal case. These claims are obviously made in order to instill panic and push you into spending your money for nothing. But the sooner you realize that there is nothing legal about Internet Police Department the better.

How to remove Internet Police Department?
