Do you know what Investigation Department Virus is?
Cyber schemers do not ask for permission to use, for example, a department’s name to complete their plans, and Investigation Department Virus is an example of how hackers could trick naïve Canadian computer users into paying a fine to avoid fictitious punishment for being involved in prohibited activity.
The virus corrupts the computer’s registry, which leads to complete non-responsiveness of the machine, and notifies the user that his/her computer is being blocked until a charge is paid. However disastrous it may look, there is no need to panic because the alert is bogus; consequently, if you remove Investigation Department Virus, you will regain control over the machine and will be able to access the Internet, which is impossible to do when the threat is present in the system.
The virus’ message contains articles of law which define legal actions on culprits. The computer user is blamed for storing or being responsible for the circulation of videos of pornographic content or for using copyrighted music or software. Below you will find how the Trojan attempts to scare users into paying the charge to unlock the PC and escape “justice”:
Attention! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reason specified below.
You have been violating Copyright and Related Rights Law (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using copyrighted content […].
Article 208 of the Crime Code provides for a fine of up to Cad 100,000 and and/or a deprivation of liberty for four to nine years.
