POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale "Votre ordinateur est bloqué" Ukash scam - how to unblock your computer

Postby Sophia » 2013-03-14 21:52

If your computer is locked, and you are seeing a “Attention! Votre ordinateur est bloqué à cause d un ou de plusieurs motifs, indiqués ci-dessous” notification from POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale, then your computer is infected with a piece of malware known as Trojan Reveton or ransomware Urausy.

What is POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale Virus?

POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale message which blocks computer's screen and asks to pay a fine of 100 Euro to unblock it is a scam. It's classified as a virus, technically ransomware infection, created by Cyber criminals and targeted at PC users from Belgium. The deceptive message presented in this ransomware states that one has to pay a fine for watching pornography or for downloading and distributing copyrighted content (music, video, etc.) - computer users should understand that none of the authorities or other organizations around the world are using such methods (blocking computer's screen) to collect fines for any law violations. This message was developed and distributed by Cyber criminals hoping that unsuspecting PC users would fall for such trickery and would pay this non-existent fine.

In reality paying the fine of 100 Euro equals to sending one's money to Cyber criminals. This particular ransomware originates from a family of screen lockers called Urausy. Rogue messages from this family come localized and are capable of adapting their interface according to what country they target (ransomware can detect the IP address of the computer it infects). If this ransomware would infect a PC located in USA the deceptive message would be changed to appear as if it was send by FBI Cybercrime Division, and for computers located in Canada this message would appear as if it was send by Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Notice that if your computer's screen is blocked by POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale message which asks to pay a fine you can be sure that your PC is infected with a ransomware infection which shouldn't be trusted.

POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale is not related to this message, it's totally a scam created by Cyber criminals. The name of this authority is exploited by Cyber criminals to make their ransomware infection appear more legitimate. Most common sources of ransomware infections are Trojans and drive-by downloads - to protect your computer one should use legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware software. Safe computing practices include keeping one's operating system and all of the installed software up-to-date. If your computer's screen is already blocked by Belgique Police Fédérale fake message you should use the provided removal guide and eliminate this scam from your PC.

How Does POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale Virus Distribute?

This threat is distributed through several means. Malicious websites, or legitimate websites that have been compromised, may drop this trojan onto a compromised computer. This drive-by-download often happens surreptitiously. Another method used to propagate this type of malware is spam email containing infected attachments or links to malicious websites. The threat may also be downloaded manually by tricking the user into thinking they are installing a useful piece of software.

The Belgique Police Fédérale virus is also prevalent on peer-to-peer file sharing websites and is often packaged with pirated or illegally acquired software.

What Does POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale Virus Do to Infected Computer?

Once installed on your computer, the Belgique Police Fédérale virus will display a bogus notification that pretends to be from the Belgique Police Fédérale, and states that your computer has been blocked due to it being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.

The Belgique Police Fédérale virus will lock you out of your computer and applications, so whenever you’ll try to log on into your Windows operating system or Safe Mode with Networking, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of 100 Euro in the form of a Ukash or Paysafecard code.

Furthermore, to make this alert seem more authentic, this virus also has the ability to access your installed webcam, so that the bogus Belgique Police Fédérale notification shows what is happening in the room.

The Belgique Police Fédérale virus locks the computer and, depending on the user’s current location, displays a localized webpage that covers the entire desktop of the infected computer and demands payment for the supposed possession of illicit material.

Cyber criminals often updated the design of this lock screen, however you should always keep in mind that the Belgique Police Fédérale will never lock down your computer or monitor your online activities.

The message displayed by the threat can be localized depending on the user’s location, with text written in the appropriate language:
