Apple’s support forum has a thread that is 26 pages and growing in which customers say their iPhones and iPads were taken hostage with a ransom message demanding money.

The alleged attacks, under the name “Oleg Pliss,” started days ago in Australia (the first post in the support form comes from Melbourne) but isn’t isolated to that region.

It’s not clear how many people in what areas have been affected, though there have been reports that the incident reached the U.S.
