Recently I received an email from a hacker claiming to have installed a virus in my computer. The main issue here is that they did have a valid email and a valid password. I am not worried about a virus. but clearly one of the accounts I visit has been hacked and data has been stolen. Unfortunately, I use this password in multiple places. so I cannot pin down the exact site. Has anyone else received a similar email?

Key to online safety and security is do not fall for this nonsense. First rule if you did not contact then first do not open it up! Do not click on ads. Do not click on the third rate websites. Do not give out your information to anyone that you have not seen face to face. If you do online shopping do it via reputable sites with proper buyer protections. Make sure your anti virus is up to date and buy a top of the line one not one of those fly by night companies that you see on TV or online. Make sure you have spyware and malware protection and clean out your cache and cookies each time you are on line. And do not give information to those whom will sell your information to others in a data mining operation. I only go to about a dozen websites and deal with a handful of trusted retailers online. I make sure my banking information is locked down better than Fort Knox. I have never had a fraudulent transaction on my accounts. To me the internet was the worst invention that mankind ever made.

Yes, all agreed. I just wanted to mention this here, because the message contained an email and password I used. So one of those sites has had info stolen. they are using the email to try and trick people into paying for them not to reveal the information. It is a type of ransom ware. I just wanted to know if anyone else here has seen this, because it would give me an idea of which site was hacked.

- - - Updated - - -

here is the content of one of the messages:
I know Malware is your password. Lets get right to purpose. You do not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this e-mail? No one has paid me to check you.

In fact, I actually installed a software on the X videos (porno) web site and you know what, you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your browser started out operating as a Remote Desktop with a keylogger which provided me with accessibility to your screen as well as web cam. Just after that, my software obtained your entire contacts from your Messenger, social networks, as well as e-mailaccount. After that I created a double video. 1st part displays the video you were viewing (you have a fine taste ; )), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam, yeah it is you.

You have 2 alternatives. We should check out these types of choices in details:

1st solution is to ignore this e-mail. In this situation, I will send your video to all your your personal contacts and also just think concerning the disgrace you will get. And consequently if you are in a loving relationship, how it will certainly affect?

In the second place alternative would be to compensate me $7000. I will refer to it as a donation. Subsequently, I most certainly will instantaneously eliminate your videotape. You will go forward your way of life like this never occurred and you would never hear back again from me.

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

BTC Address to send to:
[case-sensitive, copy and paste it]

In case you are thinking about going to the law enforcement officials, well, this email message can not be traced back to me. I have taken care of my actions. I am not looking to ask you for a huge amount, I wish to be rewarded.

You have one day to pay. I have a special pixel within this email message, and right now I know that you have read through this mail. If I don't get the BitCoins, I will send your video to all of your contacts including close relatives, coworkers, and so on. However, if I receive the payment, I'll erase the video right away. If you need proof, reply Yeah then I will send out your video recording to your 9 friends. It is a nonnegotiable offer, and thus please don't waste my time & yours by replying to this message.

I would have not have clicked on that email in the first place. Second The US Defense Department can and will find out the owner of that email in a matter of a couple of New York Seconds. Anyone who falls for this kind of email in my mind should not be online sorry for me being fresh here. I would have told that idiot go ahead release the video I give two sheets! There is no video and that would be prosecuted as blackmail. Any US District Attorney worth their salt would love to handle this case.

MS Outlook turns all my email into text, further this was read from the junk folder so it is further stripped of any active content. no harm there. Again, just wanted to share it to see if others here were affected.

Stuff like this is happening all the time, and most people have an account on at least one website that's been hacked at one point. You can check by putting your email into https://haveibeenpwned.com/

My main pieces of advice for anyone with a computer:

1. Never re-use a password for anything remotely important to you, and preferably not at all.
Get yourself a decent password manager as the strongest password is one you can't easily remember. If one site does get hacked (it's only a matter of time) they don't then have access to your other accounts as well.
2. Use two-factor authentication where available.
If nothing else, use it on your primary email account. You know, the one that you probably use to reset most other accounts and passwords you have. If that goes - everything goes.
3. Install a reputable anti-virus software.
Free porn sites are full of malware that you might accidentally click on. The hope is that anti-virus is a second defense if you make a mistake yourself.
4. Don't click on any links, or download any content that's not plain text in an email you're not expecting.
This also applies if it's an email from a friend that looks off - their account may have been hacked. Never trust the email address it says it's from without further inspection of the message header - it's easy to spoof.
5. If any email prompts you to login to something and you're not expecting it, don't do it.
Even if you think it's legitimate, always check the URL and the security certificate (little green padlock) before you put in your login details. Preferably, just navigate to the knnown page to log in yourself. It's probably a phishing attack and some of the fake pages look very real these days.
6. Cover your webcam.
If you never use it, tape over it. If you sometimes use it, cover it with a bit of card when not in use.Whether or not it happened in this case, people's webcams do get hacked. If your computer is in your bedroom, there could be lots of images you don't want out there.
7. Regularly backup your stuff
Ransomware that encrypts all your stuff sucks. Make sure you have an online backup or an offline backup that's not normally connected to your computer. External harddrives are cheap compared to the price of your time for work lost, or irreplaceable photos.
8. Never pay a ransom
This isn't a legal contract - the other person is a criminal who only wants your money. Most likely they have nothing and are just trying to scare you, but even if you have seen proof (or it's encryption ransomware) there's no guarantee they will actually undo the action or delete the video once they get the money.
There's more tips you can read around for, but those are the ones people are always falling foul of.

I hate the double or triple authentication of things. Especially when you have satellite internet like Hughes net that dings you for each time you hit enter and each time you refresh your screen takes away from your band with and allotment for the day week and month. you have to log in then get a link to your email then log into your email then click that email cut copy and paste your code onto that first one then enter what you want to go into on that website. You have wasted about 5 minutes out of your day doing that just for one website how does that make a person productive huh? wasting time and your internet usage on this. Horrible idea to me it should be a one click and your in.

There are some hacked porn sites (not this one) there. I got a message demanding bitcoin payments or they will expose me and a password I only use for throwaway free access to things.
Never use passwords on these sites you use elsewhere.

Pff. I laugh at them. I also laugh at 'ransomware'. If you know how to get into your systems registry, you can rip it out at the roots and it won't keep 'reinstalling'. I got hit with one once and just went in and dug it out at that level. (I rebooted 'safe mode' and did it there if I remember correctly...it kept trying to block me by connecting to the internet and constantly 'reinstalling'. Can't reinstall from the internet if I cut off your internet access, mofos.)

I've done the same thing with malware and such. :p

How do I end up with such things? Looking for other stuff. Like programs to romhack and suchlike. (A 'romhack' is a game made by editing another existing game. Usually used to make fanmade Pokemon and Mario games. I thought it would be cute to be able to play Mario as a different character. I had no intention on distributing the results, which is where trouble starts.) Instead I ended up picking up nonsense from various ill-reputed websites where I was searching for defunct programs. It happens.

(And also, don't go messing with your registry settings unless you actually know what the heck you're messing with. You can seriously screw up your computer if you delete the wrong key!)

I got one of those e-mails years ago, so it's been around for a long time. Yeah, don't click on anything and ignore it. I ignored it and never heard from them again.

I remember stuff like "Your computer may be infected" and virus protection programs saying you have these many viruses and asking you to pay money to have them removed. Actually any program that asks you to pay money to remove them are fake programs. No real protection program will ask you for money to remove them. The companies that have real virus protection programs already make their money off of subscriptions.

I have never ran into any ransomware. That would be bad for someone with low income who can't afford to take their computer in to have it removed. Unless you have a friend who knows how to fix computers or if you know how to do it, it would still be very annoying to remove it.

Free porn sites are full of malware that you might accidentally click on. The hope is that anti-virus is a second defense if you make a mistake yourself.
Places like xtube have given my computer viruses just by viewing videos. I quit going there. I think there was some other free porn site too that was shut down but it also has given my computer viruses so I quit going there.


Plus not all virus protection programs save you from these viruses unless the programs have improved that they now just block them now.

I get loads of these...there have been a few where they have put a legitimate (but old) password, but most of them seem to think my password is bulolwau, which I have never used on any site.

I run my own server that handles my e-mail, so any of these e-mails are marked as spam as soon as I see them, then deleted.

use AdBlock plus, ads that aren't from Google are likely dangerous cause Google team works hard to weed out bad advertisers and certain websites won't get approved for adsense since they don't follow Google terms of service.

sandboxie your browser, I also heard their is a way to sandbox entire operating system but I forgot the other software name.

also if you sign up for random website, try to use made up email and password, it works on lots of websites.

ask on Reddit what others think about website.

the thing about remote access is i don't think it enabled by default on less you manually enabled it.
check that and check your firewall ins and outs.
try use very long password like 15 or more characters or if not use different password for everything, think of it like your naming each child different they wouldn't all be named bob.

I recently got someone trying to tell me that Yahoo had "detected a virus on my computer... And that I was to call them NOW. NOW. NOW! Or they would be shutting down my computer remotely to prevent further damage to Yahoos system.
I did NOT call the number given. I did reboot the system. And report it to Yahoo through the standard Yahoo "contact us". And have NOT heard from, nor had my computer shut down remotely by the... "Person" behind the popup.
I have however headed back from Yahoo that it was not there popup nor there phone number.

I got this the other day - amusingly it's to a completely fake e-mail address that only works at all because I have a catch-all account on the domain it was sent to:

Date: Thu, 11 Oct 2018 16:54:18 +0300 [11/10/18 13:54:18 UTC]
From: Evelynn Baker <[email protected]>
To: [email protected]
Reply-To: Evelynn Baker <[email protected]>
Subject: Serious consequences for your reputation
Show this HTML in a new window?
Good evening,

we don’t think that it’s wrong to pleasure yourself from time to time.
Certain things are just best kept private, if your relatives and friends are confronted by this it will be something to worry about.
Something any person would be totally embarrassed with.
And will be having serious affects to your personal life and wellbeing.
For a period of time we have been monitoring your computer trough a trojan virus that has been installed by yourself and has infected your computer.
You have been infected by clicking on an advert on one of our infected pornographic websites.
A trojan virus gives us access to your computer and any device that is connected to it, whether it is trough wifi or bluetooth.
We have been monitoring your screen and everything you have been doing, trough a live feed, without you being aware of this.
We also have control over your camera and microphone which we can switch on and off whenever we want.
Any information that has been interesting or relevant to us has been stored privately.
For example: contacts, social media,emails,etc.
We have recorded a video where you can be seen pleasing yourself, and we have added the video you was watching as an split screen footage.
With one press of a button I can forward this video to all your contacts, social media, etc.
If you want to prevent this from happening transfer the amount of 350$ to the following bitcoin address.

Bitcoin address: 1AzLyoNiDQdvcopuEQWEgkhQJyy1EoVLKU

Buying bitcoin is very easy and straightforward ( usually verification is needed) trough the following websites:
www.coinbase.com
www.localbitcoin.com
www.coinmama.com
www.bitit.io
www.bitpanda.com
www.bittylicious.com



As soon as payment has been submitted your details and video footage will be deleted.
We will give you a timeframe of 5 days to make this payment.
Failing to do so will leave you with the consequences that you have been made aware of.
We don’t make mistakes.
Reporting this is useless, it is impossible to track this email address and these emails have been sent via an external server abroad.
These accounts have been hacked.
If you make the stupid choice to do report this or contact anybody about this message we will directly release your footage and forward it,
any other things we obtained that can possibly harm you will be used against you too.
We will get notified as soon as this email has been opened, from that moment the clock starts running.
You have 5 days exactly not a minute longer.

With kind regards
Top tip if you're a little tech-savvy; register your own domain name and use that for your e-mails so you're not reliant on Google/Yahoo/Hotmail, most domain hosting companies offer e-mail/web-mail as part of their package. Most offer a multiple addresses/catch-all accounts so you can have unlimited e-mail addresses at @your-domain.com - the registering and whatnot might cost you $10/year but it gives you total control, plus google aren't reading your e-mails.

HOW TO USE THIS: you can then use a different address for EVERY company/site that demands an e-mail address, that way you KNOW who the e-mail SHOULD be from and you can spot when it's wrong, or if you start getting spam you know who sold your e-mail address (or got hacked) and can redirect that one address into the trash automatically without burning your everyday account.

This has saved me multiple times; fake e-mails from paypal that don't arrive to my paypal address, likewise from my bank, the taxman, eBay, etc. etc. and the e-mail above which was clearly sent to an address that I have never actually used (the scammers just guess addresses like "[email protected]<domain>", "[email protected]<domain>", "[email protected]<domain>" etc. etc.)

I got an email where one of my passwords was the subject line of the email so it drew my attention.

They asked for 6 F'ing grand within 24 hours otherwise they'd share my browsing habits and private/riskay account info (that I apparently have) with my contacts. Psssshh, the fact they think I could even remotely afford that let alone that I'd consider my reputation worth that much is a joke lol

Anyway, I didn't do anything and haven't heard from them nor do I think any of my contacts have been alerted to my personal info. I thought it was particularly funny cause they even complemented my taste in porn in the email! :laugh:. Not that I browse and indulge in it super often, but I'll admit that I do partake every now and then, what can I say :dunno:

That is the biggest bunch of bullshit I've ever seen. The porn thing is there because most people use porn sites, and they're too ashamed to call the Geek Squad and say that they got a virus watching porn online. That makes them up for paying the ransom, even if there is no virus. Either way, anything other than an IC3 report (the link is on the FBI website) guarantees that they'll continue, possibly harming you worse. These are usually the same people who send bogus emails about lotteries, consignment boxes, large money finds, inheritances, and soldiers with money. Also, it could be the same people who phish social media accounts, or those who send bogus pages that only make problems worse (a notable example being the "Critical Alert From Microsoft" screen). As for email accounts, get a Gmail account, and use that. Convert your accounts over to the Gmail account, because you can view messages in Gmail without opening the door for a virus to get in. Scams sometimes pop up in the important folders, but 99% of them are relegated to the spam section. Assuming you copy/pasted the email, I can tell by the words "Let's get right to purpose" that this is obviously not an experienced hacker, and not even someone from a hacking-oriented country, such as many European countries, Russia, or more incorporated parts of Eastern Asia and India. This is probably originating from Africa, the Middle East, or a more lower-class region of Asia, and you are one of umpteen people who got that same message. If you're truly concerned, contact the Geek Squad or the police, and file an IC3 report (you won't need to make any further contact, the FBI does all the work themselves). Get your computer looked at (everyone looks at porn, so as long as the content isn't illegal due to your region or the content itself, you'll be okay), and they can determine what if anything is going on. Whatever you do, don't call a number off of the internet for help, since that will only exacerbate the problem. Call the Best Buy near you (being that we're both in NJ, the one in Deptford and the one in Cherry Hill both rock), and they'll help you and advise you on how to further correct the problems. :)

I've received one of these emails too. They seem to be inspired by an episode of "Black Mirror", in which a hacker blackmails someone using exactly these tactics (except in the show, the hacker actually did infect the victim's computer, activate their webcam while they were watching porn, etc, etc).

Incidentally, webcams (on some laptops at least) used to come with an on/off switch that physically slid a cover over the lens. My ASUS Eee PC from 2010 has such a built-in switch and cover. It's too bad the technology has since been lost; tape is a much less elegant solution…
