Virus Polizia Penitenziaria

What is Virus Polizia Penitenziaria?

Virus Polizia Penitenziaria is a computer infection which you will surely notice on your computer as it locks the computer down and displays a full-screen message that claims that you are charged with the use of copyrighted and pornographic contents. Virus Polizia Penitenziaria does not differ from such computer infections as United States Courts, České Republik Police Virus, Politie Office Central Virus and many other ransomware threats as all of them seek to lure computer users into purchasing a Ukash or Paysafecard voucher and entering its code into the given box. Once your computer gets infected with Virus Polizia Penitenziaria, you should remove the infection using a spyware removal tool.test

How does Virus Polizia Penitenziaria look like?

Virus Polizia Penitenziaria is target at Italian-speaking computer users. The warning is written in Italian; moreover, it contains different emblems of various institutions to convince the user that he or she is dealing with legal law enforcement agencies. However, the warning is a scam, and the heading Polizia di Stato, which was used some time ago, should be ignored. What is more, the logo of European Cybecrime Centre, also known as EC3 established by Europol does not prove that it is related to the investigation. All the institutions presented do seek to fight different types of crime, but we guarantee that Virus Polizia Penitenziaria is one of the schemers’ attempts to deceive you.

According to the fraudulent warning, you are supposed to pay 100 via Ukash or Paysafecard.  Here is how the user is threatened to do not delay the payment:

L’importo della sanzione penale è di Euro 100 Ukash or PaySafeCard.
Dopo il pagamento della sanzione penale il Suo computer sara sbloccato nel periodo non inferiore a un’ora e non superiore a 72 ore dopo l’accredito delle somme sul conto intestato allo Stato.

Penitentiary Police (Polizia Penitenziaria) are not related to this warning. The only thing that you have to do once you find that the computer is no longer operable is remove the so-called virus and protect the computer against potential infections in the future.
