Taking advantage of this fake charge, the insidious French UKash ransomware asked the victim to pay a nonexistent fine of 100 Euros vis the UKash prepayment system within the deadline, otherwise the computer will be firmly locked forever and also shall be investigated for legal responsibility.

That is a tricky scam designed by cyber criminals who created the French UKash ransomware.

That is why the French UKash virus can totally blocked the computer system, ruthlessly depriving user’s access to their own computer.
