Do you know what Ukash Politie Virus is?
Ukash Politie Virus is a computer infection that does not allow the user to access his desktop, and then requires a ransom fee, so that the user would not have to face a trial. That's right - Ukash Politie Virus acts like a representative of the Dutch law enforcement authorities and it locks your computer because supposedly you have committed illegal acts. These acts breach the laws of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and therefore, you can no longer work with your computer.
As you can already see, Ukash Politie Virus attacks users who have Dutch IP addresses. Actually, the type of the Ukash ransomware virus you get infected with it decided upon the malware installation. It arrives at your computer through the Reveton Trojan infection and then the ransomware acquires its face when it checks your IP address. There are different Ukash Virus for different countries, like Ireland's National Police Service Virus, Canadian Security Intelligence Service Virus, Polizia di Stato Virus and so on. So Ukash Politie Virus pops up into your screen if you are located in the Netherlands and then displays this message:
Illegale activiteit gedetecteerd!
Uw besturingssysteem is geblokkeerd voor schending van de wetten van het Koninkrij der Nederlanden!
Bovendien, uw computer heeft gebruikt voor het verzenden van grote hoeveelheden ongevraagde e-mailbericten met commerciële, politieke, of andere inhound of andere vormen van spam-berichten of berichten van terroristische aard.
Vergrendelen van uw computer is ontworpen om illegal activiteiten ten voorkomen.
Om uw computer te ontgrendelen, bent u aansprakelijk tot het betalen van een boete van €100.
Ukash Politie Virus is rather successful at coercing innocent users into spending their money, because the message it displays is really scary. It says that the computer has been locked due to illegal activity, and huge amount of spam messages sent from your IP. These messages supposedly were of political and terrorist nature.
