Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
Here a new one that has started to circulate.
e mail, right?
Well, I actually placed a malware on the porn website and guess what, you
visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were
watching the video, your web browser acted as a RDP (Remote Desktop) and a
keylogger which provided me access to your display screen and webcam. Right
after that, my software gathered all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook
account, and email account.
What exactly did I do?
I made a split-screen video. First part recorded the video you were viewing
(you’ve got a fine taste haha), and next part recorded your webcam (Yep! It’s
you doing nasty things!).
What should you do?
Well, I believe, $1900 is a fair price for our little secret. You’ll make the
payment via Bitcoin to the below address (if you don’t know this, search
“how to buy bitcoin” in Google).
BTC Address: XXXXXXXXXXXXX
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
You have 24 hours in order to make the payment. (I have an unique pixel within
this email message, and right now I know that you have read this email). If I
don’t get the payment, I will send your video to all of your contacts including
relatives, coworkers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I will erase
the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with “Yes!” and I
will send your video recording to your 5 friends. This is a non-negotiable
offer, so don’t waste my time and yours by replying to this email.
