Australian Federal Police Virus is a fake security notification that is one of the Ukash Virus variants. It is malicious ransomware that does not allow the user to utilize his desktop by displaying a screen-sized message about illegal activities. The exact text of the message shown by Australian Federal Police Virus is as follows:
Australian Federal Police
Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.
You have been violating “Copyright and Related Rights Law” (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, thus infinging Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Australia.
Article 128 of the Criminal Code provides for a fine of 2 to 5 hundred minimal wages or a deprivation of liberty for 2 to 8 years.
Anyone would be scared to see that he might be deprived of liberty from 2 to 8 years. Australian Federal Police Virus is good at scaring its victims just like other versions of Ukash Virus - FBI Moneypak, Association of Chief Police Officers Virus, Bundespolizei Virus and others. As you can see there is a bunch of these infections and they all are trying to acquire one thing and one thing only - your money.
Naturally, the crimes that Australian Federal Police Virus claims you have committed are not real, and this infection has nothing to do with the Australian Police authorities. You should never pay any money to this bogus application. However, unlike rogue infections that sometimes do not require any kind of action from the user, this time you will have to do something yourself, otherwise your computer will remain locked.
Of course, you can take your computer to a technician, but that would cost more time and money. So why shouldn't you remove Australian Federal Police Virus for free? Just do the following:
This malware should not be able to affect the Safe Mode with Networking so you can even download the security program while the you're at it.
