Polisen virus "Din dator har blockerats av ett system för automatisk information kontroll" removal guide

What is Polisen Enheten för databrott?

The Polisen Enheten för databrott message blocks the computer screen stating that this is due to the user allegedly watching child pornography, transferring prohibited content, or for possessing pirated copies of video, music, or software files. This is a scam, a ransomware virus targeting computer users predominantly from Sweden. The main purpose of this deceptive screen-blocking message is to trick PC users into paying a bogus 100 Euro (or 1000 SEK) fine using Ukash or PaySafeCard. Computer users should be aware that no legitimate authorities or organizations, internationally, use these messages to collect fines for any law violations. Paying this fine as demanded by the Polisen Enheten för databrott message (screenshot below), is equivalent to sending your money to cyber criminals.

This particular ransomware virus originates from a family called "Flimrans". Messages making false accusations regarding law violations are often localized so that PC users from different countries observe them as if sent by local authorities. The Polisen Enheten för databrott ransomware virus is capable of detecting the IP address of the computer it is about to infect, and thus adapting the graphics and text of the message accordingly. Known localised variants of this scam exploit the names of Canadian Polizei, Polizia Di Stato, and the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section. If your computer screen is blocked by Polisen Enheten för databrott, do not trust it or pay any fines. It is a scam created by cyber criminals.
