The Australian Federal Police (AFP) Ukash Ransom displays a bogus notification. The notification pretends to be from the Australian police and states that your computer has been blocked. Supposedly, you have been involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.  The virus locks your computer and asks you to pay a $100 fine for your “illegal activities”. The warnings state that you will be incarcerated if you don’t pay the fine!

DO NOT PAY THE FINE.

Paying the fine will not unlock your computer. The Federal Police Ukash Virus is a scam used by cybercriminals for money extortion.

The virus also can access your installed webcam. This allows the virus to show what is happening in the room.  And this just makes the virus appear more authentic – which it is not.

If your computer is infected with the Federal Police virus, then your screen looks similar to the image below.
