Cybercrime Nederland Politie Virus

Also Known As: Korps Landelijke Politiedienste Ransomware
Damage level: Severe

What is Cybercrime Nederland Politie?

This message blocks computer users' screens and is supposedly sent by Korps Landelijke Politiedienste (Openbaar Ministerie, CYBERCRIME POLITIE NEDERLAND).

This is a scam. The message is not sent by any authority from the Netherlands, it is a ransomware virus created by cyber criminals with the intention of tricking unsuspecting PC users into paying a bogus 100 Euro fine (using PaySafeCard or Ukash).

This screen-blocking message states that PC users must pay a fine for allegedly watching pornography or using copyrighted music, video, software files, etc. These claims are false and only made to intimidate computer users into paying a bogus fine.

Cybercrime Nederland Polite Virus

Computer users from the Netherlands should be aware that no legitimate authorities, internationally (including Netherlands Politie, Korps Landelijke Politiedienste or Openbaar Ministerie), use such messages to collect fines for any law violations. This a well-known scam employed by cyber criminals.

This ransomware virus originates from a family called Urausy and is proliferated using 'exploit kits'. To reduce the risk of infection by such security threats, Internet users should keep their software up-to-date, since exploit kits use vulnerabilities within out-dated software in order to distribute various security infections.

If your computer screen is already blocked with this message (screenshot below), do not pay the fine - it is a scam.

The Politie "Uw persoonlijke computer wordt geblokkeerd min veiligheidsoverwegingen wegens de hieronder aangegeven redenen" ransomware virus targets PC users from the Netherlands, however, cyber criminals localize the rogue messages, and thus, computer users from different countries are presented with variants of this scam.

For example, PC users from Australia with computers infected by this ransomware, observe the fake message translated into English with the header modified to appear as if sent by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). To eliminate this ransomware virus from your computer, use the removal guide provided.

Korps Landelijke Politiedienste
Openbaar Ministerie
CYBERCRIME POLITIE NEDERLAND

ATTENTIE! Uw persoonlijke computer wordt geblokkeerd min veiligheidsoverwegingen wegens de hieronder aangegeven redenen.

U wordt beschuldigd van het gebruik/opslaan en/of verspreiden van de pornografische productie wier inhoud wettelijk verboden is (kinderporno/zoophifilie/verkrachting etc.). Hiermee heeft u de voorwaarden van de Internationale Declaratie over de bestrijding van kinderporno geschonden en daardoor wordt u beschuldigd van het plegen van een strafbaar feit waarvan artikel 161 van het Wetboek van Strafrecht van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden van toepassing is.
De misdrijven van deze aard worden volgens artikel 161 van het Wetboek van Strafrecht van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden gestraft met de vrijheidsontneming voor de duur van 5 tot 11 jaar.
Daarnaast wordt u ook verdacht van het schenden van de "Wet inzake het auteursrecht en naburige rechten (het illegale downloaden van muziek, video, het gebruik van ongelicenseerde software) en van het gebruik maken van en/of verspreiden van de content waarop het auteursrecht rust. Daardoor wordt u verdacht van schenden van artikel 148 van het Wetboek van Strafrecht van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden.
Volgens artikel 148 van het Wetboek van Strafrecht van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden warden de misdrijven van deze aard gestraft met het opleggen van de geldboete ter waarde van 150 tot 550 van de basiswaarde of met de vrijheidsontneming voor de duur van 3 tot 7 jaar.
Vanuit uw computer werd er via Internet een illegitieme toegang gekregen tot de voor het publiek gesloten informatie en staatsgeheimen.
U kon de illegitieme toegang opzettelijk uit hebzucht plegen of kon de illegitieme toegang zonder uw geweten en toestemming warden gemaakt omdat uw computer besmet is door de schadelijke software. Totdat er een onderzoek naar uw zaak afgerond is, wordt u verdacht van de onopzettelijke schending van artikel 215 van het Wetboek van Strafrecht van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden (de "Wet over een zorgeloos en nalatig gebruik van computertechniek/persoonlijke computer").
