They tried to extort money from netizens via Hungarian emails.
The National Cyber Defense Institute of the National Security Agency has repeatedly issued alarms concerning blackmail letters in Hungarian on the Internet because of the large number of these letters and the number of organizations and recipients involved. In recent years, the number of blackmail letters directed at state and municipal agencies, public agencies and individuals has increased.
The wording of the letter is the same. According to the content, the recipient’s device was infected with a Trojan horse virus, which was used to copy the victim’s data to the fraudster’s server. The attacker also claimed in the email that the copied files included lossy videos recorded with the user’s camera, showing the activity of the victim while visiting an adult content website.
The blackmailer draws the attention of the letter to the fact that if the requested ransom is not paid, in this case, the compromised recording will be sent to the recipient’s acquaintance and will be posted on social media. In addition, the threat may also allow an attacker to use the user’s email account for another malicious activity.
Spam filters often fail to filter emails properly because they do not contain links that the filter can recognize. In this case, the subject of the email is “You have successfully logged in, and all data on the device has been copied. Read the instructions. The letters bc1q5cpne7expp2t333l58jnnv4gh6emmr9vv2czaz are the same as in the Bitcoin account.
NBSZ NKI recommends ignoring such letters and similar letters, and setting the above indicators in the SPAM filter.
This is the final warning.
Your system is in danger.
We have copied all data from your device to our server.
There is also a video that records your camera watching pornographic videos.
My virus has infected your device through a recently opened adult website.
If you don’t know how it works, I will share the details with you.
The Trojan horse virus allows you to fully access and control the equipment you use.
As a result, I can see your entire screen, turn on the camera and microphone, you don’t even know.
I took a video of your screen and camera equipment and edited it. The video shows a masturbation video on one part of the screen and a pornographic video on the other part. Then you open the video .
I will see your complete contact list on your phone and all social media.
I can immediately post this video to your full list of phone, email, and social media contacts.
I can also send data to everyone from your email and the sender.
I can ruin your reputation forever.
If you want to avoid these consequences, you can:
Transfer $1,400 (USD) to my Bitcoin wallet
(If you don’t know how to do this, enter “buy Bitcoin” in the Google search engine).
Bitcoin tárcám (BTC wallet): bc1q5cpne7expp2t333l58jnnv4gh6emmr9vv2czaz
After the payment arrives, I will destroy your video immediately and promise not to disturb you again.
You have 50 hours (only more than 2 days) to pay.
I will receive an automatic notification when I read this email. Similarly, the timer automatically stops after reading the current email.
Don’t try to complain anywhere, because your wallet does not follow the letter of the letter, nor will it be automatically tracked and created, so writing to me is meaningless.
If you try to share this email with anyone, the system will automatically send a request to the server, and the server will forward all data to the social network.
Changing the password on social networks, e-mails, devices does not help, because all data has been downloaded to my server cluster.
Good luck and don’t do anything stupid. Think about your reputation.
