UKash - Metropolitan Police Virus Scam is doing a re-run in the UK, and recently hit one of our customers PC's who was very distressed and upset by the experience. I'm only posting this is an advisory in case anyone else gets caught out with this. Our customer (probably like many computer users) had failed to really keep his internet security up to date, but whilst surfing YouTube he clicked on an external link, and inadvertently in doing so, downloaded the Ukash virus. It is a trojan - Basically the virus installs on your system, and then it locks the computer up with a screen saying Metropolitan Police - Your computer has been locked. The screen information displays your computer IP and other information that might make you think (if you do have your wits about you) that this is quite a genuine thing. Obviously the giveaway is if you pay them a £100 using any of the methods show, then an unlock code will be sent to you. This is a scam that happened a few years ago in Germany and has been modified and released again. If you type this into Google Search: "ukash virus metropolitan police" You will note that there have been a spate of recent attacks using this virus. Removal needs to be done with care, and using Safe Mode - even then it takes a bit of weeding out. Just to advise anyone who may be interested.
