Computer, Android Phone or Tablet has been blocked by PCeU Virus (Police Central e-crime Unit) Ukash Scam and You have to pay £100 to get it unlocked. How to take it off your screen?
The PCeU virus, which is short for the Police Central e-crime Unit virus is a ransomware that displays a fake alert on the users computer screen stating that the computer has been blocked and now locked due to its involvement in the distribution of pornographic photos, copyright content, as well as participation in SPAM. Like those most popular police viruses, such FBI virus, Police Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus, it is made to appear to come directly from the Police Central e-crime Unit. When Windows is opened the warning will pop up and the computer will lock. The hackers have gotten very clever because even when the computer is shut down and then started in safe mode the virus will still take control and show the warning. They will then demand a payment of 100 by either Ukash or a paysafecard, which is a prepaid card that is loaded with cash and then used for the transaction. The hackers that are behind the PCeU virus require these forms of payment so the user cannot initiate a charge back or attempt to get their money back after they figure out that they have been scammed. Recently, the virus also infects mobile device like Android phone, tablet or ipad. That is terrible.
Another reason this PCeU Virus is a bit more advanced when compared to others is the ability for the hackers to access and control the computers webcam. The alert then uses the live webcam feed and displays it within the fake alert, making it appear as if the user is being watched. Now, to the average computer user they may not realize that a hacker can control and gain access to the webcam, and seeing it presented this way fills their head with fears. This causes many to quickly comply with the demand and they pay the criminals the fine. How do i verify my fee payment was received when paying for internet violations with Ukash or Paysafecard?
The hackers use several different versions of the PCeU Virus warning screen, as there are at least 3 different versions that have been reported. It is assumed that they do this as an attempt to see what layout results in a higher percentage of payments. They probably continually test and make changes to make them more believable. It is a shame that so many people are taken advantage of, but as the amount of computer users rise there will always be new victims that they can target.
