"Luxembourg Police Cybercriminalite Departement" ransomware - how to unlock your computer?

What is Luxembourg Police?

Luxembourg Police Cybercriminalite Departement ransomware is a security infection derived from a family called Reveton. It is a deceptive message demanding computer users pay a 100 Euro fine for supposed law violations. This ransomware completely locks computer users' screens, stating that this action was taken to prevent illegal activity such as watching pornography, downloading copyrighted material, etc. This particular screen locker employs the graphics and name of the Luxembourg Police Cybercriminalite Departement to add authenticity. In fact, the Luxembourg Police has no association with this ransomware - this message was designed by cyber criminals with the sole purpose of scaring PC users into paying a bogus fine for fabricated crimes.

Reventon ransomware is infamous for its localization capabilities. The security infection detects computers users' IP addresses and presents a locally-translated version of the deceptive message. Moreover, cyber criminals incorporate localized graphics within the header of their scam messages. For example, users from the USA, with PCs infected with this ransomware, observe the header of the scam localized to FBI graphics and message translated to English.

Service de Police Judiciaire paysafecard virus

Computer users from Luxembourg should not be intimidated by this message - it is a scam. No authorities, including the Luxembourg Police, use such methods (locking the PC users' screens) to collect fines for law infringements. Recently discovered ransomware, targeting PC users from Luxembourg, exploits the name of the Service de Police Judiciaire. Do not pay the 100 Euro fine - if you do, you will send your money to cyber criminals and your PC will remain locked. Commonly, these ransomware infections are distributed using Trojans, fake software updates, malicious websites, and fake video codec downloads. If your computer screen is locked with such a message, use the removal guide provided to unlock your PC.

Ukash (Smart Voucher Limited) is a legitimate company and not related to ransomware viruses - cyber criminals exploit the name of this service to extort money from unsuspecting PC users.
