Strathclyde Police Virus

What is Strathclyde Police Virus?

Strathclyde Police Virus is an operating Windows system infection that follows the lead of recently discovered ransomware Atenção! Seu computador e bloqueado! or Latvijas Policijas Virus. All of these infections, despite being represented differently and managed by different cyber criminals, are categorized as Ukash or Paysafecard viruses. The name comes from the money transfer systems that are used to collect money, or “fines” as they are displayed within the virus’ notification. This attribute will be found on every infected computer’s screen and will not allow a user to access the desktop. Many Windows users will not realize the scam, because it will be supplied as a legitimate notification sent by the British Metropolitan Police. Despite this, the alert is bogus, the lock-down is illegal and you need to remove Strathclyde Police Virus as soon as possible.

Forbidden websites containing pornography, child pornography, Sodomy and called violence against children on, violent material toward people were visited from this IP-address! [… To release a lock your computer you should pay the fine in amount of £ 100.

As you can see, the alert is written in poor English and there is no doubt that Metropolitan Police have not investigated your virtual actions. Even if the stated accusations are somewhat real, there is no need to waste your money and support the vicious schemers. To top it all off, it has been found out that many Windows users who have paid the ransom also faced continuous system paralysis. This only proves that schemers want nothing from you but your money and they are not interesting at “releasing” your computer for as long as you are willing keep the virus running within.
