Cybercrime Investigation Department ransomeware targets Canadians

Canadians, be advised of a new ransomeware that appears as a warning from the “Cybercrime Investigation Department”, which claims the [victim’s] PC has been blocked due to violation of Copyright and Related Rights Law and illegal use or distribution of copyrighted content, thus infringing Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

 The Cybercrime Investigation Department is in fact ransomeware and should not be taken as a legitimate warning. This cyber threat, which uses phishing techniques similar to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service virus as well as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) ransomeware, is designed to steal money from unaware PC vicitms.  It mostly claims that you have been illegally distributing copyrighted content, malware, etc and now you have to pay the fine through Ukash or other prepayment system.
