Remove Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg Virus; My computer got a crazy message asking for a fine of €100 Ukash or Paysafecard

The Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg Virus is a ransomware virus that attacks computer users located in Luxembourg, although there have been reports of computers hit with it outside that immediate area. Like other ransomware viruses it blocks the use of the computer and demands a payment due to illegal activities being detected on the computer. It claims that the IP address of the users computer was detected performing illegal activities and that payment of 100 euros will result in access to the computer. It also states that failure to pay the fine will result in the case being transferred to a special task force for further investigation. The warning message also indicates that the Windows license number of the machine has also been identified. There is an option to enter payment information and it also warns that entering in a code wrong three times will result in the computers hard drive being completely wipes out and the PC being completely useless.

These are some very strong threats from the Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg Virus, and to the average computer user they may appear to be legitimate and cause them to send the payment that is requested. They claim that the IP address linked to the computer is responsible for visiting illegal websites, and contaminating other systems from the spread of this illegal activity. Since the virus locks the computer the user isn’t able to run a virus scan or even open the Internet browser to search the topic. If they were able to do this they would quickly learn that it is indeed a scam, but the system lock prevents this and many go ahead and pay the money out of fear.

The message window provides two payment options. The first is through ukash and the second is through a paysafecard. These are both prepaid payment methods that are not traceable. They directly transfer the money to the hackers without providing an option to disputer the charge in the future. There are even instructions on where to purchase the prepaid cards located within the warning message. The overall graphic design of the warning window is poor quality, but there is a seal from the “Association Of Chief Police Officers” that makes the Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg hoax seem authentic. There is also a Luxembourg Virus Police logo, and this along with the fact that the computer is locked forces many to pay the fine and get scammed.

The truth is that paying the demand will not cure the PC from this ransomware. The only way to get rid of it is to remove the virus files from the computer. This is a virus that will only infect Windows PC users, as Mac iOS users are immune to infection.
