Comandancia General De Policia Virus - How To Remove?

Type: Ransomware

Comandancia General de Policia virus is a ransomware targeting users in Ecuador. This parasite will block the PC and show a fake screen claiming that the police, Unidad de Investigaciones Especiales (UIES) detected some sort of illegal activity. To scare you into paying the ransom, it will stack every offense they can think of: watching pornography, downloading movies illegally or using pirated software. It will warn about huge penalties and will demand a 100 USD ransom to unlock PC.

Usted está acusado de mirar/conservar y/o divulgar los materiales pornográficas del contenido
prohibido (Pornografia infantil / Zoofilia/violación etc.). Usted ha infringido la Declaración mundial

This message is obviously a fake one. If you break the law in any country, the police would tell you this in person or would use other means to communicate than using ransomwares. However, Comandacia General de Policia might seem legitimate and convincing for some people. Alas paying the ransom in Ukash won’t help to clean your PC.
