Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus Removal Guide

December 4th, 2016 / No Comments » / by Guru

Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus is defined as ransomware, which is essentially malicious software which holds the computer ransom from the user demanding payment in order to allow the user access to the computer. Ransomware software is not a new type of virus, with Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus being one of many ransomware software on the internet. There has been a rise in this type of ransomware software being released over the past year with each ransomware software being similar but in different languages and different payment types (other examples include the Ukash virus, which uses the Ukash instead of MoneyPak for payment). Each version presents itself to the user as a government entity asking for payment for a crime (for this virus, it is the FBI). For the Federal Department of Justice and Police virus, the top line will state “Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below”. The software will then ask for payment through moneypak (which may be unusual for a government agency). In addition, the ransomware will lock the computer to make it inaccessible to the user. The Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus is essentially a scam and should be removed to stop further damage to the computer.
