POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale Virus

Also Known As: Belgique Police Fédérale Ransomware
Damage level: Severe

What is POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale?

The POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale message blocks computer screens ordering payment of a 100 Euro fine to unblock it. This is a scam, a virus (ransomware infection) created by cyber criminals targeting PC users predominantly from Belgium.

The deceptive message displayed by this ransomware states that the user is required to pay a fine for watching pornography or downloading and distributing copyrighted content such as music, videos, etc. No international authorities or other organizations use such methods (blocking computer screens) to collect fines for any law violations.

This message is developed and distributed by cyber criminals in the hope that unsuspecting PC users fall for their trickery and pay the bogus fine.

POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale Ukash scam

In fact, paying the 100 Euro fine is equivalent to sending your money directly to cyber criminals. This particular ransomware originates from a family of screen lockers called Urausy. Rogue messages from this family are localized and capable of adapting their interface according to the targeted country (i.e. the ransomware can detect IP addresses of the computers it infects).

For example, an infected PC located in the USA receives the deceptive message as if sent by the FBI Cybercrime Division, and users located in Canada as if sent by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

If your computer screen is blocked by the POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale message, demanding payment of a fine, your PC is infected with a ransomware infection and should not be trusted.

POLITIE Belgique Police Fédérale is not connected with this message - it is a scam created by cyber criminals. The name of this authority is exploited by Cyber criminals in order to make the ransomware infection appear authentic.

The most common sources of ransomware infections are Trojans and drive-by downloads, thus to protect your computer, use legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware software. Safe computing practices include keeping your operating system and installed software up-to-date.

If your computer screen is already blocked by the Belgique Police Fédérale fake message, use the removal guide provided to eliminate this scam from your PC.
