My computer has been locked by Polícia de Segurança Pública Virus Ukash scam? They want me to pay 100 euros or else with 72 hours? Is it real or just fake thing? I am scared. How to  unlock  PC from the locked screen?

Computer Blocked by Polícia de Segurança Pública Virus Ukash Scam €100?

If your computer screen is locked, and there is a message that appears to be from the Portuguese police demanding a payment of 100 Euro for several violations, then there is a very good chance that the computer has been infected by the Polícia de Segurança Pública Virus (Portugal) and action will need to be taken right away to get the virus removed. Like the Mexico Police virus, this is a very common ransomware attack that targets users in Portugal and the hackers infect file sharing sites as well as porn sites with this virus. The amount of traffic that these types of sites receive is extremely large and they are able to infect thousands of computers daily this way. Users that visit those types of sites tend to blindly click on pictures and download links without ever thinking that there is a potential risk for infection. Also, the fake warning message suggests that the PC has been locked due to the illegal use of copyright material, distribution of pornographic material, and also the involvement in SPAM.

With the chances very high that the user picked up the Polícia de Segurança Pública Virus (Portugal) through one of those kinds of sites it leads them to believe tat this might be a real threat, and they pay the “fine” because they are scared and do not want to risk future fines or even legal issues. The hackers are using threats as a way to extort money from these computer users. While they might be guilty of the accusations it is important to know that the police are never going to lock a computer or demand money be paid online, especially not through a prepaid option like the warning message demands.

The hackers demand that the payment be paid by ukash or a paysafecard, both of which are prepaid method. They even display a list of stores that offer these services. The use would go to the store and pay for one of these cards and load it with cash, then enter the pin number of the card on the warning screen, which will instantly transfer that money to the hackers without the ability to get it back once the scam is revealed.
