sing 8889 - ukash


Recommended Posts


Is the EEA ver. 5.0.2214.5 of virus signature database: 8889 (20131008) can remove the virus Ukash?

If so, how do I do that?

RA did not register danger.

Please help me.

There are several variants of the police ransomware Ukash / LockScreen released in relatively short intervals. ESET utilizes effective mechanisms to ensure that users are protected against new variants either proactively or in as short time as possible after the authors unleash new variants to the world.
