Suomen Poliisi Virus Removal Guide

Do you know what Suomen Poliisi Virus is?

Suomen Poliisi Virus is a computer threat that has been designed to lure your money out of you. It is a ransomware infection and as such Suomen Poliisi Virus displays a fake notification on your screen, blocking your desktop access. It looks as though your computer has been locked by the Finnish Police office - as you can see, Suomen Poliisi Virus targets users in Finland. However, it is nothing, but a computer infection that makes use of official law enforcement symbols to push you into spending your money for nothing. Suomen Poliisi Virus is directly related to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Virus, ICSPA Virus, Polizia Penitenziaria Virus and other ransomware infections from Ukash Virus group. There are countless ransomware threats, and the newest batch (Suomen Poliisi Virus belongs to) is being distributed around the globe by Urausy trojan.

Since all of these infections are related, the contents of the message displayed by ransomware programs are the same as well. The difference is that they are shown in respectable local languages. Here's an example of the notification displayed by Suomen Poliisi Virus:

HUOMIO! Tietokonenne on tehty vaarattomaksi vähintään yhdestä alla mainituista syistä.
