Police or FBI virus removal from Android phone

The users who have a mobile phone with Android operating system in it can one day find that their device is being blocked by a ransomware virus. The notification, which appears to be sent from law agency, informs the users that they supposedly performed some kind of illegal activity and now have to pay a fine to recover access to their systems. The truth is that you have done nothing wrong. This bogus message is usually sent by some version of Trojan Koler which obviously has no ties with any kind of legal institution.

Just like the original FBI or Police virus that attacks Windows operating system, this infection blocks user’s access to Graphical User Interface (GUI). Know that the only goal of this malware is to convince users that they must give away their savings, if they wish their phones to be unblocked. However, instead of paying cyber crooks who infected your system, you should terminate Police or FBI virus from your Android device.

Unfortunately, since this virus easily adapts to user’s geographical location and pretends to be sent from local law enforcement agency, many fall for its tricks and pay the required amount of money. Most often the infection uses FBI or local police emblems, however it may also pretend to be U.S. Department of Justice, Irish An Garda Síochána, Police Central e-crime Unit, Metropolitan Police,  Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and so on. The message presented by this rogue demands that you pay a fine of $300 via Ukash, GreenDot MoneyPak or Paysafecard systems. You must bear in mind that the fact that you pay the money does not guarantee that your system will be unblocked. Also, do not forget that by complying with the demands, you will real you banking data to the crooks who can use it to steal your money again in the future. Once again we urge you to keep your money to yourself and to remove the virus which currently resides in your Android phone.

Since users often leave their smartphones vulnerable by not using a security application, it is not hard for such intruder to sneak in. Malicious software usually enters the device alongside unreliable applications which you install believing that they are safe. Also, it may enter the system from some suspicious page you visited recently. Whichever way this malware used to enter your phone, we recommend not to let it stay any longer and to get rid of Trojan Koler.

    I don’t know who you are and what organisation is behind you – but anyway I have to thank you so very much: I had this kind of police-ware on my motorola defy Android and was blocked from any search, as long as I would not pay 150 bucks ….Happily I found your description on the net and the hint to press volume down during the start up – something not even motorola told me ever – and my device is free from these guys and my search machine works pretty :o)) Thanks from Markus
