Malta Police Association Virus is a ransomware threat that makes a ridiculous claim of being the Malta Police Association authorities who have supposedly detected or found where you have been violating copyright and related rights laws sharing music, video and software illegally. The claims made by the Malta Police Association Virus have no justifiable merit and should not be taken for their face value. In fact, the Malta Police Association Virus ransomware message is one that was created by hackers who peddle malware like the previously identified Malta Police Force MPF Ransomware threat message. These messages are rendered by a Trojan horse that tends to lock up your computer and then asks that a fine upwards of 100 EURO be paid through PaySafeCard or Ukash where hackers will be able to obtain those funds but leave your computer locked up.
The Malta Police Association Virus ransomware message is an outright scam and it should be treated as such. All of the threats made in the Malta Police Association Virus message never come to fruition as the verbiage is a complete lie. Even though Malta Police Association Virus message may display your computer’s IP address or location, it is only part of the scam where the infection attempts to gain your interest and ultimately take that 100 dollars or 100 EURO out of your pocket without any value in your purchase.
The Malta Police Association Virus Ransomware Message reads like the following:
Malta Police Association
Polizija ta Malta
