What is Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus?
The Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus which is also named as PCEU virus or Specialist Crime Directorate virus is a notorious computer infection that belongs to the ransomware family. It is created by cyber crooks to scam inexperienced users for money by locking their computers.
Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus pretends to be from the British police and states. Once gets installed, it will hijack your Desktop with a full screen warning which claims that your computer has been blocked due to users have been illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, viewing and distributing pornographic content, SPAM and spreading malware to other computers, or doing other illegal activities. And demand people to pay a fine of £100 using Ukash or Paysafecard in order to unlock the computer.
To make this alert seem more authentic and convincing, these viruses have the ability to capture personal information such as user names, IP address, and credit card numbers through embedded keystroke logging programs and display them on the notification.
