What is United Kingdom Police Virus?

United Kingdom Police virus is identified as a deceptive ransomware which is designed by cyber criminals with the view of defrauding innocent computer users of money.

Once this United Kingdom Police virus seizes the opportunity to sneak into your computer, this bothersome virus will start its evil plan immediately. Your computer screen will be locked up all of a sudden, which makes you unable to perform any operation on your computer. Meanwhile, a strange webpage will come out, which seemingly come from the United Kingdom Police and accuse you of being involved in some illegal online activities like copyright violations, the distribution of spam, accessing the content of child pornography and other nonexistent crimes.

If you refuse to pay the fine, you will face a jail sentence sooner or later. Besides, your IP address and your city will be displayed. However, don’t be fooled by this malicious virus.
