Turned my laptop on today and some virus saying Australian Federal Police has locked my computer up asking me to pay 100 Australian dollars fine via Ukash (what is Ukash anyway).

I just received a warning on my tablet stating I have to pay $100 to get it unlocked.I have also got the following block webpage stating the violation of child pornography and bulk spamming – I don’t even know what that mean anyway.The page also says I have downloaded a music from unknown sources and all this violation are punishable by 250$ AUD.Suddenly my computer is blocked by Australian Federal Police Malware and I don’t know why.UPDATE: The folks over at Twitter have been busy sorting this compromise out and have blogged about it here, they estimate that about 750 accounts were compromised.Incidentally it looks like Facebook was hit with a similar attack about a month previously.

Can your computer be locked by the Australian Federal Police AFP Virus Ukash scam?

Can your Mac book or cell phone locked by the AFP virus thing? I’m using mac book and I think I am scammed by the AFP virus scam, my browser has been locked, so what should i do to unlock my browser?

It appears that there is a rash of Twitter account hijacking going on this evening.

Hundreds of twitter accounts are being compromised and tweets are being posted encouraging users to make the accquaintance of a 23 year old female with a webcam… Come chat with me on my webcam thingy here Obviously we recommend against clicking on this link, it leads to a porn webcam portal which looks to have been designed with credit card harvesting in mind.

So far over 700 Twitter accounts have been compromised in the two hours since 7pm GMT. Affected users should change their password to a secure one as soon as possible (see today’s earlier blog entry for advice).

The porn webcam portal contains an obfuscated Java Script that loads up porn related advertisments on the browsing computer. It is unclear how the mass compromise occured, although with Twitterers willingness to enter their Twitter username and password into any number of third-party websites offering Twitter related services, the opportunities for cybercrime are many.
