Do you know what Politia Romana Virus is?
Politia Romana Virus is a computer infection that terrorizes innocent users into paying their money for something that cannot be done. Politia Romana Virus is actually a ransomware application, and as such it locks your computer by displaying a fraudulent security message across your screen. Since this infection targets Romanian users, the message is displaying in Romanian and it carries a few official symbols of Romanian Police force.
