The Police Virus – What it Does And How To Protect Yourself

We have recently had to deal with the latest version of the Police Virus or “Ransomware”. If you open an infected file or web page your computer becomes locked and displays a page which informs you that your computer has been locked by the police because you have been involved in illegal activities on line. You are asked to pay a sum of money to unlock your computer.
