Do you know what Svenska Polisen Virus is?
Svenska Polisen Virus is a ransomware program that will lock you out of your computer and claim that you have committed terrible crimes in order to swindle you out of your money. This malicious infection is localized for Sweden and its computer users, as the notification displayed by the infection is shown in Swedish, and it is said to have been sent by the Swedish Police office. Naturally, law enforcement authorities have nothing to do with this infection, and the sooner you remove Svenska Polisen Virus the better.
In order to remove Svenska Polisen Virus from your computer, you need to restore your desktop’s access first. For that you can refer to the instructions at the end of this article. However, before you remove the infection, you need to know how it got into your system, so that you would not get infected with any similar threat again.

Svenska Polisen Virus is part of Ukash Virus scam, and so there are hundreds of similar ransomware programs out there, all localized for different countries in the world. There have been several Ukash infections intended for the Swedish market already, including Kriminalpolisenheten virus, Den Svenska Polisen It-sakerhet Ukash, Din Dator är Blockerad Virus and others. The unique feature of the newest batch of infections from this family is that Svenska Polisen Virus and other similar applications are distributed by Revoyem Trojan. You get infected when you click on a corrupted link or a flash advertisement while visiting pornography website.
Once you click a link that is related to this scam, you automatically get redirected to a child pornography webpage and the infection takes place. The next thing you know, your computer is locked and you are seeing the following notification on your screen:
Datron laser sig för polis
Arbeta datorn har stängts av på grund av visning olagligt innehåll
Alla olagliga aktiviteter på datorn, inclusive bilder och video från webbkamera, lagras i en polis database för vidar identifiering av enskilda gäarningsmannen
This infection wants to make you pay the supposed “fine” by convincing you that it is the only way to avoid criminal case being open against you. Nevertheless, the moment you transfer those several hundred euros via PaySafeCard or other alternative payment system, you will never be able to get your money back. Your computer will remain locked, as Svenska Polisen Virus is not going anywhere.
You need to remove Svenska Polisen Virus yourself. Once you get your desktop access restored, invest in a legitimate computer security application so that it would terminate the ransomware and all the Trojan infections that could be possibly plaguing your system.
