Computer blocked by RCMP Virus (Ukash Scam) and You have to pay $100 CAD to get it unlocked. How to take it off your screen?
The RCMP virus is short for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police virus, which is a computer attack that disguises itself as a legitimate notice from the authorities (International Cyber Security Protection Alliance) and alerts the PC user that their computer has been blocked because they have detected illegal activities from the IP address, such as copyright violations stemming from the illegal download and sharing of copyright files as well as the distribution of SPAM emails and even pornographic content. Like the FBI Scam, Police Cybercrime Investigation Department virus, AFP Ukash virus and PCeU virus, this fake warning screen first pretends to be the Canadian government police and puzzles users think it is real so that they are scared to pay, it says if the computer owner don’t pay $100 CAD within 72 hours, they will be arrested. These are all serious charges and will really open the eyes of the user, making them pay close attention to the warning message details.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP virus) locks the users computer and all of the programs and applications from being accessed. If the user attempts to close out the warning message they will soon realize that it will minimize, and they will not be able to open a new Internet browser window. At this point, the warning message will be taken a bit more seriously and the user might also try to restart the computer, and upon the restart the message will immediately be shown and the computer will be locked again. This will even happen if the PC is restarted in safe mode.
The RCMP virus hackers demand that the user pay a $100 CAD fine in the form of a paysafecard or ukash, which the user can get at local retail stores. This is a pre-paid payment method that instantly transfers the money from the user to the hackers. They select this form of payment as a way to protect the cyber criminal’s identification, as the money cannot be recovered or tracked. While some people might not take the message seriously at first, that soon changes when the virus accesses the webcam and activates it and displays the live feed within the message window and makes a notice that the police are using the webcam in order to identify the users identity. The RCMP virus makes the threat that if the fine is not paid right away that there will be additional fines as well as possible criminal prosecution. You must take it off of your computer as soon as possible.
