Australian Communications and Media Authority virus

Australian Communications and Media Authority virus is a ransomware infection which is also known as AFP Crime Commission virus. The infection can get to the PC disguised as a legal file or application, email attachment, and so on. If you do not have a reliable security tool, it is highly advisable to implement one to remove the threat and secure the PC against new computer infections.

AFP Crime Commission virus makes the computer inoperable and displays a warning whose function is to persuade you to pay 100 Australian dollars for unlocking the PC. The money is regarded as a fine as you are allegedly believed to have committed some crimes. Whoever finds his or her computer infected with AFP Crime Commission virus is said to be related to the use of pirated files and distribution of pornography. It is important to pay no attention to the accusations and the requirement to pay the money via Ukash or Paysafecard as the warning you have on the screen is a scam.

The text provided by the infection may seem convincing, but if you analyzed other ransomware warnings, including Metropolitan British Police Virus, and Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d'information virus, you would find that the warnings are almost identical. Here is how the user is threatened by Australian Communications and Media Authority virus:

Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.

Amount of fine is AUD $100. You can pay a fine Ukash voucher.

As soon as the money arrives to the Treasury account, your computer will be unblocked in course of 24 hours.

If you think that the Royal Australian Corps of Military Police, Australian Communication and Media Authority, and Australian Crime Commission, which are presented in the warning, are somehow related to the production of the warning, you are wrong. The institutions have been chosen to scare you into thinking that you will not escape justice and will pay the fine via Ukash or Paysafecard, so do not be worry. You will not go to jail.
