Should you find your desktop blocked by something that pretends to be the Australian Communications and Media Authority, do not be so hasty as to follow all of its instructions. You have been infected by AFP Crime Commission virus that is a ransomware program. True to its classification, AFP Crime Commission virus holds your computer hostage demanding a ransom fee. The fee is called a “fine” which you have to pay for a supposedly committed crime. It is more than obvious that you owe nothing to this infection and you need to remove AFP Crime Commission virus immediately.
Although it may seem as though AFP Crime Commission virus is really representing the Australian law enforcement authorities, it has nothing in common with Royal Australian Corps of Military Police or any other official authorities. Quite the opposite, AFP Crime Commission virus is related to a number of similar infections that are also localized for specific markets, for example, Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus, Metropolitan British Police Virus or any other ransomware application from the Ukash Virus group. All these infections are distributed by Urausy and similar Trojans, and once they get into your system they deny you desktop access by displaying a misleading notification on your screen:
Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.
You are accused of viewing/storage and/or dissemination of banned pornography (child pornography/zoophilia/rape etc.). You have violated World Declaration on non-proliferation of child pornography.
The penalty set must be paid in course of 48 hours as of the breach. On expiration of the term, 48 hours that follow will be used for automatic collection of data on yourself and your misconduct, and criminal case will be opened against you.
Amount of fine is AUD $100. You can pay a fine Ukash vouchers.
AFP Crime Commission virus asks you to pay via Ukash alternative payment system not because the system itself is involved in this cyber scam, but because the malware makes use of it to collect money even from those users who do not have a bank account or a credit card. The thing that you need to realize is that AFP Crime Commission virus will neither forward your case to the court nor will it unlock your PC. You have to do it yourself by following the instructions below. Once you have your desktop unlocked, acquire a powerful computer security program to remove AFP Crime Commission virus once and for all.
