I've been getting these fairly regularly the last couple of weeks. It purported to be from my account but secret IT ninja skills revealed this to be false - however the "to" field used an ancient password as the name. Subject has been either "your secret life," "account was hacked," or "Your Account was hacked."
Message text has consistently been:
Hi, dear user of blarg.net
We have installed one RAT software into you device.
For this moment your email account is hacked (see on , I messaged you from your account).
Your password for firstname.lastname@example.org: oldpasswordredacted
I have downloaded all confidential information from your system and I got some more evidence.
The most interesting moment that I have discovered are videos records where you masturbating.
I posted my virus on porn site, and then you installed it on your operation system.
When you clicked the button Play on porn video, at that moment my trojan was downloaded to your device.
After installation, your front camera shoots video every time you masturbate, in addition, the software is synchronized with the video you choose.
For the moment, the software has collected all your contact information from social networks and email addresses.
If you need to erase all of your collected data, send me $800 in BTC (crypto currency).
This is my Bitcoin wallet: 1HqUfvPooEY3fQPsuM4dRzq5uzTQjDoYpt
You have 48 hours after reading this letter.
After your transaction I will erase all your data.
Otherwise, I will send video with your pranks to all your colleagues and friends!!!
And henceforth be more careful!
Please visit only secure sites!
This forum does not use emails. However, a number of other forums that use emails as a prerequisite to posting have been hacked. Apparently these forums do not use encrypted passwords.
Hackers are sending emails to forum members threatening to expose their porn viewing habits and hold their systems hostage. They try to make it appear that the email came from your own email account. They tell you the password they hacked form the forum as proof they hacked your system—trying to snare those that use the same password on email and on forums.
Then they demand that you send bitcoin to them.
You should either ignore these or file a complaint with the FBI. https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us
You should make sure that your email and system passwords are different from what you use on forums.
Do not click on any links in such emails.
