Following the influx of the FBI MoneyPak ransomware variants, yet another type of extortion technique came to be in June 2012, pretending to emanate from the Police Central e-Crime Unit, part of the British Metropolitan Police Service. Mainly targeting UK users through determining the victim’s IP location, the virus displays a fake Windows block screen on behalf of the above-mentioned law enforcement agency and lists possible cybercrime offenses that the user is allegedly guilty of. To settle down the ‘case’, the ransomware suggests that the victim pays a fine of 100 Euro for the completely hijacked computer to be unlocked. The extorted payment is to be submitted via Ukash or Paysafecard prepaid services by entering a corresponding code from a purchased card into the block page.

 

The prevalent known channel that the fraudsters have been utilizing for distributing the Police Central e-Crime Unit ransomware has to do with web exploit toolkits, such as BlackHole, as well as the infection known as Trend DNSChanger Bot, offspring of the infamous DNSChanger whose infrastructure was taken down by the FBI in 2011 and resulted in a number of arrests. The way victims get infected is typically through exploiting software vulnerabilities, mainly those in Java – yet another good reason for the average user to run regular Java updates.
