POLICE RENDŐRSÉG virus - how to unlock your PC?

POLICE RENDŐRSÉG (A számítógép zárolva lett) is a virus and should not be treated as a legitimate message from the Hungarian police. This is a ransomware infection from a family called Reventon. Cyber criminals responsible for creating this family, use localized versions of deceptive messages demanding payment of fines for supposed law infringements. This particular screen locker is designed to scare PC users predominantly from Hungary. The message exploits the name of POLICE RENDŐRSÉG and uses their logo. None of the text in this ransomware infection is legitimate - the Hungarian police do not send messages of this nature to computer users. This is a virus developed by cyber criminals.

If your computer screen is locked by a message of this type, your PC is infected with a ransomware infection. Do not pay the 25000 HUF or 100 Euro fine - you will lose your money and your computer will remain locked. The best way to treat such a message is to ignore the bogus statements and eliminate it from your computer. Neither the Hungarian police, nor any other authorities worldwide, use screen lockers to collect fines for online piracy or other law violations.

Magyarorszag Rendorseg Police ransomware virus

As mentioned above, POLICE RENDŐRSÉG (A számítógép zárolva lett) ransomware is derived from the Reveton family of screen lockers. This type of ransomware infects PC users all over the world, and moreover, cyber criminals have translated its text into most European languages. To make the messages appear authentic, cyber criminals exploit the names of local authorities within the targeted countries. For example, a computer user from the USA with an infected PC, would receive the message as if it came from FBI. Do not trust this message or pay the fine. Use the removal instructions provided to eliminate this scam from your computer.

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