Onevanilla Ransomware is an infection likely initiated by malicious advertisements. The virus is used to lock or restrict access to a Android system or internet browser using a full screen window or webpage that claims to contain a message from local government departments and other lawful authorities, similar to the FBI virus which is discovered in 2012. The message is always fraudulent and is never sent by any legitimate authority. It always tells victims that they have violate some laws because of watching some porn videos and their device have been lock. If they want to unlock their device, they will need to pay a big fine using inactivated vanilla or other ways like paysafecard. The victims will be told that if they don’t pay the fine, the police would come to their home and they will be accused. In addition, generally this virus will ask victims to pay in 24 hours or XXX days. If the victims don’t pay in time, they will also be accused.

Samsung Phone is Locked by Metropolitan Police due to Illegal Activities?-How to Unlock?


My brand new Samsung phone is now entirely locked by the Metropolitan Police for illegal activities. After watching porn on the internet, something was installed on my phone saying that illegal activities have been detected. I have searched around and it is pretty clear that it’s a virus. My phone stays on the popup screen and I can’t do anything on it. It says it wants me to pay 500$ or they will send something to all of my contacts, and they took a picture with my camera! I have tried to reboot my phone and all it does is give me a few seconds before it pops back up. Can they really do these things? I don’t know what to do! How do I get rid of this? All help needed please, get this damn thing off my phone

Samsung Phone is Locked by Metropolitan Police due to Illegal Activities?-Is it Real?

Do you receive a Metropolitan Police popup which says, “This device was locked to stop your illegal activity.”? Is the popup real? No, it is not sent by the Metropolitan Police. It is a harmful virus created by the hackers to attack your device for money. This fake police virus belongs to the Troj/Urausy Ransomware family which mainly targets devices in United Kingdom. At the same time, it also attacks users in other countries and regions. It steals the name of Metropolitan Police or British Police to lock users’ devices for money illegally. If your device was attacked by this virus, you would be locked out of your device and apps. In order to access your device again, you are requested to pay a fine of $ 500. Do not trust this scam virus. You are not in trouble with the police or any other legit agency. Though it is not an easy job to remove this nasty and stubborn virus, do not try to fix the problem by paying the fine. It turns out that it is useless to pay the fine like it demands. Many users were freaking out and paid the fine without a second thought. However, they got nothing and their devices were still locked after many days they sent the prepaid card code. Therefore, you should remove the Metropolitan Police virus off your device instead of paying the non-existed fine. Read the rest of this post »
