Police-service.net Virus Popup Screenshot
* Attention! Your browser has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below. All activities of this computer have been recorded. All your files are encrypted. This Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security virus malware by Police-service.net is a fake police warning. It lists some detail information such as your IP and location on the screen to convince you that it’s legit. You need to enter the MoneyPak code to pay the $300 fine in order to get your browser unlocked. This pop-up blocked screen is 100% fake and users can unblock browser manually without paying the fine.
Will my browser be unlocked if I pay the fine:
The $300 MoneyPak fine is not requested by the FBI or Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security but is asked by hackers who put this virus online to attack and scam computer users. Apparently, paying $300 fine will not unlock your browser from the Police-service.net tab. It will only benefit computer hackers. Once the money is entered via greendot MoneyPak, you will not be able to get this amount back as it will be transferred directly into hacker’s account.
What will happen if the fine is failed to enter:
Browser is blocked up and a fine is required to enter? Is it telling you that all your files are encrypted? How to decrypt files without paying the fine? All of these doubts can be ignored as the popup is not real. Some users also wonder whether or not they will be arrested if they refuse to pay the fine. There is a limit of time set for users to enter the payment. If the time elapses, you are told that you will never be able to unlock your computer or decrypt all your files; further criminal cases can also be initiated against you automatically. However, they are not true as the virus is bluffing to get you to pay the 300$ fine. To unlock browser from Police-service.net virus screen, manually eliminate the browser adware completely.
