This e-mail caught me a little by surprise this morning as the subject was “Be sure to read this message! Your personal data is threatened!”. At first I thought it was something related to the Equifax data breach. But upon further inspection, I realized it’s another blackmail scam.
Hi, dear user of kennethballard.com
We have installed one RAT software into you device
For this moment your email account is hacked too.
I know your password for this account [REDACTED]: REDACTED
Changed your password? You’re doing great!
But my software recognizes every such action. I’m updating passwords!
I’m always one step ahead….
So… I have downloaded all confidential information from your system and I got some more evidence.
The most interesting moment that I have discovered are videos records where you masturbating.
I posted EternalBlue Exploit modification on porn site, and then you installed my malicious code (trojan) on your operation system.
When you clicked the button Play on porn video, at that moment my trojan was downloaded to your device.
After installation, your front camera shoots video every time you masturbate, in addition, the software is synchronized with the video you choose.
For the moment, the software has harvrested all your contact information from social networks and email addresses.
If you need to erase all of your collected data and video with your enjoy, send me $600 in BTC (crypto currency).
This is my Bitcoin wallet: 16MC7p89x3AX2mZBy5RbyJ5foi8pUc3eEU
You have 48 hours after reading this letter.
After your transaction I will erase all your data.
Otherwise, I will send video with your pranks to all your colleagues, friends and relatives!!!
P.S. I’m asking you – not to answer this letter because the sender’s address is fake, just to keep me incognito.
And henceforth be more careful!
Please visit only secure sites!
So the same “I installed an exploit to a porn site and have video of you… enjoying yourself” blackmail e-mail. Just different text.
