Computer Has Been Blocked by Polizia Penitenziaria Virus (Italy) Ukash Scam – How to Unclock Your PC From The Warning Screen?

Polizia Penitenziaria Virus (Italy) is a ransomware attack in Italy that is beginning to be reported by many users. This ransomware virus is found from the notorious ransomware family Urausy. Everyone is supposed to be aware of such ransomware scams and take appropriate precaution for that.

This Polizia Penitenziaria Virus appears to come directly from the Polizia Di Stato and tells the user that their computer has been locked for violating several laws, including copyright distribution, SPAM email marketing, and even the illegal use of pornographic content. The warning message is complete with the authorities logos and seals and appears to look personalized for the users as it contains their IP address and also details about the computer.

While an experienced computer user might question the authenticity of this threat, someone that is new to the Internet might think that they really did in fact do something wrong and want to take care of it right away rather than risk more fines as well as possible legal troubles. The “fine” is 100 Euro and the payment methods that are accepted are either ukash or paysafecard, and the hackers even list a number of retail outlets that sell these prepaid payment forms. This payment form protects the hackers as it gives them immediate access to the funds and they cannot be traced by traditional payment methods. They even include a large EC3 Europol logo on the Polizia Penitenziaria Virus (Italy) warning to further scare the user into paying.

If the user happens to be a bit skeptical they will soon change their mind when they try to close out the warning window and see that there is no way to make it go away. Also, with no way to use any other function of the PC they will tend to begin to believe that the police really did lock their computer. The message states that the payment must be made within 72 hours, forcing many into running out and making the payment quickly. While it says that access to the computer will be available within 72 hours of the payment being made this is false. There is no way to make it go away without removing the Polizia Penitenziaria Virus (Italy) completely from the computer. There are full manual removal instructions that will help rid the PC of this horrible ransomware attack, and it is important to do this as quickly as possible.

To save your computer, follow the manual removal guide below to get your problem fixed ASAP.
