What Is Canadian Police Association Virus?

Canadian Police Association virus, as stated above, is classified as ransomware, aka PC lockup virus. It is one of the most wide-spread and yet the most destructive infections in the cyberspace. Also it is one of the most hard-to-remove viruses.

How Do I Get Infected with Canadian Police Associated virus?

Often, ransomware is spread via Trojans. So does Canadian Police Association virus. Such infection would invade the computer when you are clicking a suspicious link, or open an email with evil attachment, or even visiting some risky websites, etc. It can be almost everywhere it can be. So be careful when searching online.

What Does Canadian Police Association Virus Do to the Infected Computer?

Once the computer is compromised by Canadian Police Association virus, it will attempt to lock the computer from normal running and then display a scaring alert faking the local authorities’ name, and here as Canadian Police Association, to be convincing that the user has violated some local laws and then should be fined to unlock the computer. Usually the fine is required to pay via Ukash or Paysafecard. Remember that no legal authority does such a way to do their job. However, this is even not the whole story. If you get tricked this way, what you lost is not merely the paid money, but also the your credit card information, let alone that doing such way could actually contribute to nothing in terms of getting the computer back to normal. Hence, never never be scammed by such online trick and if you unfortunately stump upon this ransomware, please instantly follow below steps to unlock your computer.

Webcam control


Once infected, there would be a little more than usual that this ransomware virus would even attempt to trick the user into thinking they are under surveillance by webcam, as it always shows a fake screen in “recording” status. Actually this even makes no difference on the infected computer with no web cam at all. Apparently, the truth is ready to jump out at your call.

Deny Flash

Most ransomware exploits Java or Flash vulnerabilities to load the malicious code. In some cases denying or disabling flash on your system may suspend the Canadian Police Association virus and enable the user to navigate through the infected system. If this not a necessity for removal, skip to the removal options below these steps.
