I greet you! I have bad news for you. 27/08/2018 - on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account firstname.lastname@example.org On that day your account (email@example.com) password was: 55816 It is useless to change the password, my malware intercepts it every time. How it was: In the software of the router to which you were connected that day, there was a vulnerability. I first hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it. When you entered in the Internet, my trojan was installed on the operating system of your device. After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts). A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a small amount of money to unlock. But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and came to the big delight of your favorite resources. I'm talking about sites for adults. I want to say - you are a big pervert. You have unbridled fantasy! After that, an idea came to my mind. I made a screenshot of the intimate website where you have fun (you know what it is about, right?). After that, I took off your joys (using the camera of your device). It turned out beautifully, do not hesitate. I am strongly belive that you would not like to show these pictures to your relatives, friends or colleagues. I think $918 is a very small amount for my silence. Besides, I spent a lot of time on you! I accept money only in Bitcoins. My BTC wallet: 12ziVv4aQkZTA1gj86Y9uYQByG4CcdVcTA You do not know how to replenish a Bitcoin wallet? In any search engine write "how to send money to btc wallet". It's easier than send money to a credit card! For payment you have a little more than two days (exactly 50 hours). Do not worry, the timer will start at the moment when you open this letter. Yes, yes .. it has already started! After payment, my virus and dirty photos with you self-destruct automatically. Narrative, if I do not receive the specified amount from you, then your device will be blocked, and all your contacts will receive a photos with your "joys". I want you to be prudent. - Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data is already uploaded to a remote server) - Do not try to contact me (this is not feasible, I sent you an email from your account) - Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on a remote server. P.S. I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment, as you are not my single victim. This is a hacker code of honor. From now on, I advise you to use good antiviruses and update them regularly (several times a day)! Don't be mad at me, everyone has their own work. Farewell.
hello, my sacrifice.THIS IS MY LAST WARNING!I write you since I attached a malware on the web site with porn which you have visited. My malware grabbed all your personal information and turned on your camera which captured the process of your solitary sex. Just after that the soft saved your contact list. I will erase the compromising video and data if you pay me 800 EURO in bitcoin.This is wallet address for payment :I give you 30 hours after you view my message for making the payment. As soon as you view the message I'll know it immediately. It is not necessary to tell me that you have sent money to me. This address is connected to you, my system will erased automatically after transfer confirmation. If you need 48 hours just Open the calculator on your desktop and press +++ If you don't pay, I'll send dirt to all your contacts. Let me remind you-I see what you're doing! You can visit the police station but anybody can't help you. If you attempt to cheat me , I'll know it right away! I don't live in your country. So no one can not find my location even for 9 months. Goodbye for now. Don't forget about the shame and to ignore, Your life can be ruined.
