Subject: Re: (some email) IMPORTANT NOTICE DON'T IGNORE
I think you will not be happy, because I have a very bad news for you. Just a few months ago I hacked your operating system and I have full control of your device. I implanted a small application into your device which sends me your current IP address and allows me to connect to your device just like remote desktop.
Even if you change your password, it won’t help.
How I infected you?
The router that you used to connect to Internet had a security hole. You can read about this problem by searching for CVE-2018-10562. I hacked your router and I put my code into it, and when you tried to connect to Internet, my program infected your device.
Later I made a full copy of your hard drive (I have all your email contact lists, list of websites you visited, phone numbers, your passwords etc.)
A little while later, when I was searching your web browsing history I was shocked by what I saw!! The sites for adults you are visiting... you know what I mean...
I just want to say - your fantasies are shifted far away from the normal course!...
For months I have been spying on you through your device camera..especially when you visited those sites to have fun...Those videos show clearly you having fun and the content for adults you were watching.. this is pretty nasty and I would be very worried if I were you.
I have secured 2 videos:
an_email_address_1557074047.mp4 (119.1 MB)
You can verify that the timestamps correspond to the moments you were enjoying yourself...
Now, because I do not like at all what I saw (that’s pretty crazy and ugly) I ask you to send me a donation through Bitcoin network.
3000 US dollars is a fair price (considering your perversions).
If you want me to forget about the whole case, remove the files and disable the nasty app that is spying you, send me the Bitcoin payment within 72 hours. Yes, I give you 72 hours only.
Here is my wallet:
Send exactly 0.291578 BTC to my address:
(copy it and paste - it’s case sensitive) =======================================
0.291578 BTC = 3000 dollars
If you do not send me the Bitcoin, I promise you - I will send those files with you enjoying yourself to all your contact lists, associates and social network friends.
I still have access to your device and I know when you read this message.
When you opened it, time started ticking. You have 72 hours only!
I am from Russia and nobody will help you if you report this email.. Before they find me your life will be ruined! If you do not cooperate with me - I will release this ugly material immediately.
This is why I advise you - send me the Bitcoin and let’s forget about the whole situation. I know you can afford it.
