Ukash Virus

Thursday, January 17th 2013 under Security by

If you see that Ukash virus has locker your PC, do not underestimate this infection. It is known that the new version of this ransomware infection has the same features as its predecessor, but this time it is able to reside in the background and work as a dangerous keylogger, even before it has revealed its presence on your computer.

The new version of Ukash virus is now downloaded to machines not only together with illegal software, but also while visiting unknown and insecure sites. It uses security holes in running applications, and outdated versions of programs to enter a targeted machine.

Once on your PC, Ukash virus locks the whole system and makes it impossible to access files and information on the computer. Also, it displays a message on top of the Desktop saying you are accused of illegally spreading copyrighted materials and pirated software. The message insists that you pay a fine to unlock the system and avoid being sent to prison.

This is the warning, which is shown:

All activity of this computer has been recorded. If you use a web cam, videos and pictures were saved for identification. You can be clearly identified by resolving your IP address and the associated host name. Illegally downloaded material (MP3′s, Movies or Software) has been located on your computer.

Your computer has been locked!

This operating system is locked due to the violation of the federal laws of the United States of America! (Article 1, Section8, Clause 8, Article 202; Article 210 of the Criminal Code of U.S.A. provides for a deprivation of liberty for four to twelve years.)

Threat of Prosecution Reminder

The reason why this new version is so dangerous is that the behavior of Ukash virus makes it possible for hackers to collect all your personal and financial information.
