    The “Police Central e-crime Unit” lock screen is a computer virus (Trojan:W32/Reveton), which will display a bogus notification, that pretends to be from the Metropolitan Police and states that your computer has been blocked due to it being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.
    [​IMG]The Police Central e-crime Unit virus will lock you out of your computer and applications, so whenever you’ll try to log on into your Windows operating system or Safe Mode with Networking, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of £100 in the form of a Ukas or PaySafeCard code within 48 hours.
    Furthermore, to make its alert seem more authentic, this virus also has the ability to access your installed webcam, so that the bogus Police Central e-crime Unit notification shows what is happening in the room.
