Do you know know what Sacem virus is?
Sacem virus is a computer threat that does pose a great threat to your computer's system, but it can be exceptionally threatening and frustrating, because it blocks your desktop. Rather infecting your system, Sacem virus is more interesting in your money. It accuses you of indulging in illegal activity and then forces to pay a release fee that is supposed to unlock your computer but nothing of the sort happens. Why? Because Sacem virus only wants the money and it does not care what happens to your computer.
Sacem virus targets users in France. There are more than 30 infections of this kind created to target French users. All of them belong to Ukash Virus group, and they've been active since May 2012. Sacem virus is delivered to your computer by Reveton Trojan infection through drive-by downloads. Default ransomware infections from Ukash Virus group that targets users global include FBI Moneypak, Association of Chief Police Officers virus, Interpol Departament of Cibercrime virus and others. The language of these infections might be different, but the message they deliver is practically the same:

As you can see, Sacem virus expects you to pay a 100 euro release fee. It promises to unlock your computer the moment it receives the money, but that is not true.

However, do not forget that a COMPUTER PROGRAM cannot put you into jail, and it will only get a hold of your credit card information if YOU provide it yourself.
