What is Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet?
Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet is a ransomware program that usually attacks computer users in Sweden. Ransomware programs are created in order to scam people into paying money to the cyber criminals. The program restricts access to your desktop and shows you a false message that claims you have committed a crime usually concerning Copyright laws. Needless to say, none of the statements are true and you should not follow any of the instructions provided. Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet is distributed by Reveton Trojan ans is very similar to FBI Virus, Homeland Security virus, Bundespolizei virus and other ransomware programs that belong to Ukash family.
The reason you were infected by the virus is probably because you do not have a malware prevention tool on your PC. In order to delete Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet and regain access to your computer you will have to download an anti-malware tool.
How does Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet work?
Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet could have gained access to your PC if you opened a spam e-mail and downloaded the attachment from it or clicked on a malicious link. You could also have been infected if you have downloaded software from freeware or shareware websites. You should always be especially careful with unreliable sources on the Internet if you do not own an anti-malware tool.
Once in the system, Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet will lock down your computer and display a message that looks like this:
“Din dator är låst – för ett eller ﬂera skäl som anges nedan. […]
§212 Straffrätt Sverige föreskriver ett straff till 250.000C och fängelse för en period av till 6 år. Om operationen utförs utan din vetskap, omfattas du av i det här avsnittet §210 Straffrätt Sverige.”
The message says that your computer was locked because of one of the laws that you have broken. It goes on to explain that if you do not pay the fine using one of the online money transfer systems your fine will be increased or you may even go to prison. The statements are ridiculous and should not be taken seriously. Government facilities do not collect fines via online systems and they certainly do not lock your computers. You should not transfer any money to the cyber criminals as it does not mean that your computer will be unlocked. You should remove Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet yourself. And here is how.
