CIBS POL. Virus - how to remove this ransomware from your computer?

What is CIBS POL.?

CIBS POL. (Bundesamt für Polizei) screen lock is a scam created by Cyber criminals, targeting PC users from Switzerland. This security infection is termed 'ransomware'. These infections lock users' screens and demand payment of a bogus fine for supposedly committing law violations. This particular message is derived from the Reveton family and targets PC users predominantly from Switzerland. The deceptive screen locking message reports that this action was taken to prevent illegal activities such as watching pornography, downloading copyrighted material, etc. In fact, the Swiss authority, CIBS POL. (Bundesamt für Polizei), has no connection with this message - it is a scam created by cyber criminals. This deceptive message is designed to trick PC users into paying a 100 Euro fine, which is sent to criminals behind the scam.

Do not pay this fine - you will lose your money and your PC will remain locked. The graphics within this ransomware are employed to make the message appear authentic. No authorities around the world use screen lockers such as these to collect fines for law violations. The best practice to protect your PC from these ransomware infections is to use legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs.

CIBS POL. (Bundesamt für Polizei) screen lock is a localized version of a Reventon ransomware infection. PC users from the USA see the deceptive message as being delivered from the FBI and translated into English. Localized translations and graphics (corresponding to local authorities) are employed to make these ransomware infections appear authentic. Notice that some ransomware infections targeting PC users from Switzerland exploit the name of SUISA (the Cooperative Society of Music Authors and Publishers in Switzerland). Do not be fooled by this message or pay the fine. To remove this scam from your PC, use the removal guide provided.
