What is Politiet Norge?

The Politiet Norge message is a ransomware infection originating from a family called Urausy and locks the user's computer screen. This family of ransomware infections is developed by cyber criminals with the sole purpose of stealing money from unsuspecting PC users. It is notorious for capabilities to adapt the deceptive message according to the country in which the infiltrated PC is located. Cyber criminals develop this security infection with the ability to detect the IP address of the target computer, and thus displaying the graphics, authority names, and text according to the specific country.

Politiet Norge ransomware targets computer users from Norway, however, users with infected PCs from France observe a message translated into French with the graphics of a local authority. This localization is employed to add authenticity to the deceptive message, which demands payment of a 100 Euro fine. Politiet Norge has no connection with this message. If you pay the fine, you will send your money to cyber criminals and your PC will remain locked. Do not be intimidated by the statements delivered within this message, they are fake. Ignore them and remove this scam from your computer immediately. The first screenshot (displayed below) is by the Reveton family of ransomware. There are several ransomware families that target PC users from Norway and this removal guide will help you to remove these screen lockers.
