UK Police Ukash Virus is another variant of the infamous Ukash Virus that targets computer users and smartphone or tablet users in the United Kingdom. If it attacks your computer, it can infiltrate to your system without your permission or knowledge with the use of security exploits. And then it begins its aggressive attacks on your machine. At the first beginning, it blocks the victimized computer and asks the victim to pay a fine of a certain amount of money to restore access to the PC. If it blocks your android phone/tablet, your whole screen will display a fake government block until you pay a fine from 100 pounds to 250 pounds. In fact, it is unnecessary for a user to pay the fine because United Kingdom Police is a bogus warning created by criminals in order to cheat innocent users.
As long as the virus invades, it will cause all types of havoc in the system. Every time when you turn your computer on, it blocks you from accessing the infected computer desktop, Task Manager, Registry Editor and other services and applications. Instead of displaying your desktop, you will get a fake warning showing your computer’s IP address, your location, your operating system, as if all your information is detected by the Police. Then it will claim that the victim’s computer was involved in viewing child pornography and then demands certain payment should be sent via Ukash. Its final goal is to convince computer users into believing it is a legitimate warning, and it also scares users that they only have 72 hours to pay before they initiate legal proceedings that could lead to huge fines and possible jail time. In fact, it is a scam that users shouldn’t be panic. Since there are no antivirus programs can pick up this threat, it is kindly suggested computer users should get rid of this pesky United Kingdom Police Ukash malware manually as soon as possible.
UK Police Ukash Virus Malware can not only attack computers, but also can be available for android mobile phones. It is also known as a Trojan Koler malware, so if it happened to you it locks up your smartphone immediately and blocks everything on your phone. You cannot use any app installed, nor make a call to your contacts. Instead, the only thing you will see is a message like this: “ATTENTION! Your phone has been blocked up for safety reasons”. It says that this message is sent by PCEU and United Kingdom Police, and it asks you to pay a fine using one of payment systems like Ukash or Paysafecard. Under no circumstance should you pay for the fine for the message is nothing but a scam. It is just designed to trick users to pay 100 pounds using a prepaid card because it is more complicated for victims to track the money once they found Ukash Virus is a hoax. Smartphones users should remove UK Police Ukash Virus immediately.
