“We have the metropolitan police Ukash virus. It locks the computer and says to unlock the computer we have to pay £100. I Googled the virus and I have found a thread on a forum that explains how to remove the virus and it requires booting the computer up in safe mode. But no matter how many times I tried that, I can’t boot my computer in that mode.” If you have the same problem as this victim says, is there an effective way to delete this scam malware? On my mac a Metropolitan Police alert popped up saying that my IP address has been blocked, is this the apple virus?

What is Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus? Your PC or Mac Book is blocked by Metropolitan Police and have to pay £100 to unlock it?

Metropolitan Police Ukash virus, no matter how deep it disguises, it can’t change its essence as a rogue ransomware which has been bringing much harm to computer users in Great Britain. Now it is launching an invasion in the United Kingdom areas by threatening computer users pay £100 as “fine” for the plausible-sounding reason: This operating system is locked due to the violation of the federal laws of the United Kingdom! Is this true? Is the alert sent by the real Britain government department? The answer is not. Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus is a ransomware just like other one, for example, Gema and GVU from Germany, Sacem from France, Politie Federal Computer Crime Unit Ukash Virus from Belgium and Buma Stemra from the Netherlands. In fact, this virus was designed by the same hackers. 

Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus just constantly changes its GUI or interface to deceive people according different countries and areas. And this time it has a name of Metropolitan Police. This is a local government department, but the warning doesn’t really come from that department. The name is given so that it looks like perfectly justifiable. Once installed, it hijacks your Desktop with a rather professionally done full screen warning claiming to be from Metropolitan Police. Then tells you that your activities online are violation of the laws of the United Kingdom! You may be stigmatized that your IP address was used to visit websites containing pornography, child pornography, zoophilia and child abuse. Your computer also contains video files with pornographic content, elements of violence and child pornography! Spam-messages with terrorist motives were also sent from your computer. You will be required to pay 100 dollars through Paysafecard as the forfeit. Don’t believe even one word of this message. Even if you pay £100 to those criminals behind, your computer will be still locked and they may ask for more money from you. The only solution is to find a correct way to remove Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus from your computer. But just like the victim says, even if you try to reboot your computer in safe mode with networking, the virus still can block your screen. At the same time,  since it stops you running any software, you can’t remove it via anti-software. So the only best way to kill this virus is to remove it manually with expertise.
