Heute früh habe ich doch mal ganz kurz ein Schreck bekommen. Die E-Mail sah auf dem Handy ziemlich authentisch aus und das Kennwort habe ich wirklich mal (vor langer Zeit) verwendet. Vermutlich stammt das Kennwort aus einem alten Yahoo-Hack (2013 oder so).
Also keine Panik und nichts bezahlen! Aber zum Spaß für Euch, hier die Mail:
Betreff: firstname.lastname@example.org:k***** Von "Tameka" <expose> Datum Heute 05:16 It appears that, (k*****), 's your password. You may not know me and you are most likely wondering why you're getting this e mail, right? in fact, I put in place a malware over the adult vids (adult porn) web-site and guess what happens, you visited this web site to have fun (you really know what I mean). When you were watching videos, your internet browser began working as a RDP (Remote Access) which provided me accessibility of your screen and web camera. and then, my software programs obtained all of your contacts from the Messenger, Outlook, FB, as well as emails. What did I really do? I made a double-screen video recording. First part shows the video you're seeing (you've got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam. what exactly should you do? Well, I think, $1000 is a fair price for our little secret. You will make the payment by Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search "how to purchase bitcoin" search engines like google). BTC Address: 1D8sodbW6AZBzqEg2uPTTf4JC5wMB3MhVE (It's case sensitive, so copy and paste it) Important: You've one day to make the payment. (I've a completely unique pixel within this e mail, and at this moment I am aware that you've read through this email message). If I don't get the BitCoins, I will certainly send your videos to all of your contacts including relatives, colleagues, and so on. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the recording immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will definitely mail out your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said don't waste my personal time and yours by responding to this message.
Alles nur blabla. Das war eine Plaintext-Nachricht. Da ist kein Pixel oder Bild drin. Auch der Rest ist alles Bullshit. Lasst euch nicht verrückt machen. Der Typ ist nur auf schnelles Geld aus.
Update: jetzt gibt es auch eine Meldung auf ghacks.net dazu.
