I was on my safari browser on my iPad when a message came up from the metropolitan police blocking my safari and saying that I have to pay £200 via an iTunes gift card to unblock my safari, I was wondering if you know how to get rid of this as I have read up on it and it seems like a scam. Safari has been locked by Metropolitan Police Virus £200 fine, it said my device has been locked for illegal pornography. How do I get rid of a potential metropolitan police virus on an iPad or iPhone?
Metropolitan Police Virus Freezing Safari on iPad/iPhone – How Can I Unlock It?
Metropolitan Police Virus £200 fine is a ransomware hacking users most from UK or Europe. It is a variant of porn scam things created by hackers. When user browsed the web site on his/her iPad or iPhone and suddenly he got this Metropolitan Police warning block on google and Safari, and it said you had to pay a fine of ￡100 sometimes ￡200 immediately, or you will face prosecution for viewing illegal sites (which he/she actually didn’t do). Metropolitan Police notification popping up on your Safari or Chrome on your iPhone or iPad is actully a kind of virus or ransomware which mainly defrauds money from victims. It is not from real Metropolitan Police department. This Metropolitan Police Virus pretends to be from Metropolitan Police to display false warning alert claiming victims viewing pornographic material and for this reason victims have to pay for a penalty of ￡100 or ￡200 through iTunes Gift Card. And it threatens that if you can’t send the fine within limited time, your data, pictures, contacts and other information will be taken by them, your case will be told to your friends and contacts and even your criminal prosecution will be transferred to court or Metropolitan police(the Federal Criminal Police Office). Actually this Metropolitan Police notice is just a hoax. victims should know that this is a scam and their device like iPhone or iPad now has a Metropolitan Police Virus(malware or ransomware?). Some victims contacted the device provider company for guidance but there is no luck as the company only produce products not provide virus removal service. No one knows how to get rid of the warning screen because people there have very little knowledge of fixing this iPad virus problem. Metropolitan Police Virus blocked iPhone or iPad? How do I actually take it off ? Where do I go to do it?

Hi I had the Interpol scam on my iPad today so I sent an email as requested asking for my iPad to be unlocked. In the meantime my provider told me to reset my iPad and this has cured the lock down but I’ve received an email from the scammers saying I need to pay a fine. I obviously realize now this is a scam but can they still hack my iPad through email. Please tell me how to remove it?
“Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” Scam – How it Works?
“Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” Scam is defined as a terrible thing that will lock your safari and ask you pay a fine to unlock your safari. According to our experience, some victims pay on that scam but their browser just keep locked, and they have no way to get their money back, the fine is about 100~500 US Dollar, Euro or pound. It means the virus has spread in many countries including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Newzeland. Just like the FBI Moneypak scam, it seems as legitimate as possible so that innocent computer users will fall for it and pay for the fines. In this way, hackers can collect as much money as possible. Thus, please be careful when your computer gets locked by this fake Canadian Police warning page. The Police Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus is also treated as ransomware that is to extort money from as many mobile device users as quickly as possible by attempting to fool them into believing that they have participated in several serious violations online and must now quickly pay a fine or face severe consequences down the line in the form of legal action and additional monetary fines. This type of virus is spread for the sole purpose of tricking users into sending money to the hackers, and there is not a serious system threat from this ransomware unlike most viruses that give the hackers remote access to the Mobile device (Android phone or Tablet). The hackers only want to infect the mobile device with the Police Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus and then move onto a new victim. Read the rest of this post »

Hi, I am scared right now! I was using my boyfriend’s iPad and a message came up to say it had been blocked by FBI police for looking at pornography and requested a fine to be paid. I was just watching something on website, but a sex website came up, I actually wanted to close it down but maybe click on something wrong, then this Blocked-safari.com warning thing showed up. I clicked on OK to expect this page can be closed, but it didn’t exit. And next I tried to exit Safari, but it failed. All apps demanding Internet are blocked. I almost can’t access anything on iPad. My boyfriend should blame me if he knows this. What can I do?
Safari’s locked by Blocked-safari.com Ransomware Warning – Is it Real from Department of the FBI Cyber Crime?
Many iPhone or iPad users now are scared by this warning of Blocked-safari.com which blocks the Safari browser, accuses user of watch or viewing illegal porn material and demands users to pay a penalty amount to $500 with an iTunes Prepaid Card. The most terrible is that this warning is labeled with FBI logo and badge, which looks like it’s really from FBI department of USA! The Blocked-safari.com usually claims the warning alert as below:
Your Safari browser has been blocked up for viewing and distributing illegal materials prohibited by the criminal law of the United States of America, called pornography with elements of child pornography, rape and zoophilia.
In order to unblock your safari browser, you are obligated to pay a fine in the amount of $500.00 with an iTunes Prepaid Card.

Is there any news on decrypting the Hades Locker? My laptop is infected with this virus. Pictures, pdf, xls, doc everything is encrypted. The warning pop up on my screen and ask me pay a fine to get my files back, do you know how to remove it? And I’m not planning on paying 590 euro’s.
What is Hades Locker Virus? How does it work?
Hades Locker Virus comes from a family of file-encrypting ransomware. It offers to make a payment in Bit coins to get a key to decrypt files. Important to know, currently not possible to decrypt the .HL files encrypted by the ransomware without the private key and decrypt program. Hades Locker Virus places everything you keep on your PC under lock down. You cannot open it or access it in any way. Not unless you apply the right decryption key to free it. But that key costs you. This is where the ‘ransom’ part of the ransomware kicks in. After it encrypts your data, it demands you pay up for its release. Don’t pay the ransom! Don’t follow the requests of cyber extortionists! If you do, you only bury yourself in deeper troubles. Cut your losses. Say goodbye to your files to protect yourself from an even bigger mess. It may seem like an impossible choice to make but it truly is the best course of action to take. Discard your data. It’s the lesser evil. Read the rest of this post »
