Yahoo Email Porn Ransom Spam

Unless you live in a cave deep in the center of the Sahara (in which case you can’t get this post) you know by now that Yahoo had a data breach about 5 years ago and all the user account information was harvested.

Well in the last year or so, all that information was released on the Dark Web.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And all the hacker wannabes are peppering your inbox with messages like this:

 


I am aware ******** one of your pass word. 
Lets get right to the purpose.
You do not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this mail?

Neither anyone has compensated me to check about you.



Let me tell you, I setup a malware on the 18+ streaming (pornography) website
and there's more, you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I
mean). When you were watching videos, your internet browser initiated
functioning as a RDP with a key logger which gave me accessibility to your
display and cam. Just after that, my software program collected all of your
contacts from your Messenger, social networks, and emailaccount. Next I created
a double-screen video. First part shows the video you were watching (you have a
fine taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the view of your cam, and its you. 


You do have not one but two options. We are going to review these solutions in
aspects:

1st option is to ignore this message. In this instance, I most certainly will
send out your actual tape to each of your your personal contacts and thus just
consider about the embarrassment yo
u will see. In addition should you be in an intimate relationship, just how it
would affect?

Number two choice will be to give me $5000. Let us name it as a donation. In
this scenario, I will right away delete your video. You can carry on your daily
life like this never occurred and you would never hear back again from me.

You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search for "how to
buy bitcoin" in Google). 

BTC Address: 1A74g9xU8Hi8yYyb4uSMU1g2acn4AyH3E9

[CASE-sensitive, copy & paste it]

If you have been looking at going to the law enforcement officials, okay, this
mail can not be traced back to me. I have taken care of my moves. I am just not
trying to ask you for a whole lot, I prefer to be paid.


You have one day in order to pay. 
I've a unique pixel within this mail, and now I know that you have read through
this e mail. 
If I do not get the BitCoins, I will send your video to all of your contacts
including relatives, coworkers, and so forth. 
However, if I receive the payment, I will destroy the video immediately. 
If you want proof, reply with Yes then I definitely will send out your video
recording to your 15 friends. 
It's a non:negotiable offer and so don't waste my personal time & yours by
replying to this message.


So there it is.

None of this is real.  No one has been spying on your Internet activity (other than Google, the NSA, FBI, CIA and the neighbor’s teenager…)

This is about as real as margarine.

You can ignore it.

However…

If you’re still using the password shown in the email…

WHY?

Either change it or delete the account permanently.

Then you can easily ignore all future phishing scams referring to that outdated and completely non-secure password.

Search elsewhere in this blog for password recommendations.  You can find some well thought-out suggestions for constructing higher security passwords in the future.

 

If all of this makes your head hurt just thinking about it, contact us for a solution

Short Bio: The Computer Wizard (TCW). TCW was founded by Warren P. Harris in 1994 to service and repair computers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Relocating the business to Plano, Texas in 1999, TCW continued to flourish when an unfortunate loss of data for a wedding Mr. Harris photographed, caused him to research data recovery options. Realizing he would have to either pay someone to recover the photos or find out how to do it himself, the rest, as they say "is history". Approached by a friend who was a Private Investigator in 2006, Mr. Harris studied for his Investigator's license and began honing his skills in Computer Forensics. The company was renamed DFW Computer Integration in 2015.
