Dansk Rigspolitiet virus is released by cyber criminals to mainly attack PC users in Denmark. It has been detected out recently and should be categorized as ransomware which is quite similar to other members of the Troj/Urausy Ransomware family like United Kingdom Police virus, Homeland Security Virus and West Mercia Police Ukash Virus. The only purpose of publishing Dansk Rigspolitiet virus is to cheat PC users’ money and even steal their financial information such as bank account, credit card password and other important financial documents. The Dansk Rigspolitiet virus is able to infect almost all of the Windows operating system including Windows 8, Windows 7 and other versions. Once the computer has been infected by this ransomware, it would be locked up and also will be covered by a piece of large warning message on the screen. People who receive such warning message would be asked to pay a fine of DKK 1000 danske kroner in the form of a Ukash or Paysafecard voucher within 48 hours. Many cybercriminals usually use the common trick to successfully gain illegal profit. Increase number of victims in Denmark have been annoyed by this ransomware however, they still don’t have effective methods to remove the Dansk Rigspolitiet virus. We will have further discussion on this virus and share the virus removal instructions with Windows users in this post.
“OBS! Computeren er blevet blokeret af sikkerhedsmæssige årsager anført nedenfor” This is the content of notification displayed by Dansk Rigspolitiet virus when Windows users’ PCs get the infection at first. The alert pretends to be sent by Denmark Government Department however, it is fake actually. The Dansk virus tries to scare people into paying the money immediately. If any victims make a call to the Danish National Police or other government departement then they would find that it is a totally scam! Unfortunately, quite a lot of people choose to believe the fake warning message and proceed the payment. The result of course was that they still could not have their PCs unlock and kept receive the notification every time they login Windows system. Dansk Rigspolitiet virus would display fake notification on Windows PC claiming users to involved in distribution of copyright content or pornographic videos, movies, etc. It also modifies entire web browser settings and reroute search results to suspicious websites.
