Rikspolisstyrelsen virus - how to unlock your computer?

What is Rikspolisstyrelsen?

The Rikspolisstyrelsen message, a scam demanding payment of a fine, was created by cyber criminals. The deceptive message demands computer users from Sweden pay a fine of 100 Euros for supposedly committing law violations. It states that the PC was locked due to the user watching pornography, or downloading copyrighted video and audio files. Infections such as these, which block computer users' screens and demand payment of bogus fines, are termed 'ransomware'. This particular infection is derived from a family of ransomware called Urausy and targets PC users predominantly from Sweden. Cyber criminals use localized graphics and translated text in order to make their deceptive messages appear authentic.

This ransomware infection detects computer IP addresses and is thus able to determine the user's country. Using this information, the computer user is presented with a screen lock that appears to be delivered from a local authority. This ransomware is translated into many languages so that PC users from different countries observe the results of the infection in their local language. Do not trust the message presented by Rikspolisstyrelsen ransomware, it is a scam aimed at stealing your money.
