POLIISI Osasto Tietoverkkorikollisuuden Virus - how to remove this ransomware and unlock your PC?

POLIISI Osasto Tietoverkkorikollisuuden is the name of a legitimate Finnish authority that has no connection with the screen locker shown in the screenshot below. The name of this authority is exploited by cyber criminals in order to make their deceptive screen locker appear authentic. The message blocks computer users' screens and is fake. It states that your computer is locked because you were using copyrighted content and have committed other law violations. In fact, these are bogus statements and only made to scare computer users into paying a fake 100 Euro fine. This particular screen locker originates from a family of ransomware infections called Reveton.

Security infections from this family are localized. For example, if a computer user from the USA has his/her PC infected with this ransomware, the software displays an English version and the graphics are adjusted make the message appear as if it came from the FBI or Interpol. No authorities or organizations use these methods (screen locking) to collect fines for any law infringements. Ransomware infections are widely distributed by cyber criminals who use their deceptive messages in order to trick PC users and steal their money. Do not pay the 100 Euro fine - you will lose your money and your computer will remain infected.
