Police Central E-Crime Unit "Threat of Prosecution Reminder" virus - how to unlock your PC?

What is Police Central E-Crime Unit?

The Specialist Crime Directorate Police Central E-Crime Unit message "Threat of Prosecution Reminder" is a ransomware infection originating from a family called Adneukine. This is a scam developed by cyber criminals aimed to scare unsuspecting PC users into paying a bogus fine for supposedly committing copyright law violations. This particular variant targets computer users from the United Kingdom, however, variants are translated into other languages and adapt to the locations of PCs they infect. This ransomware virus coerces users into paying a bogus 100 Pound fine using Ukash or PaySafeCard. For example, the same ransomware infection on a computer located in the USA would be adapted as if sent from the Internet Crime Complaint Center, demanding payment of a $500 fine in order to unlock the user's PC.
