"I am a Hacker Who Has Access to Your Operating System" Scam

Would you share this Article with others?

Online users, please DO NOT follow the instructions in the "I am a Hacker Who Has Access to Your Operating System" emails like the one below, which claim your operating system has been hacked and you need to make payment to prevent your photos and videos from being exposed. The fake emails are being sent by cybercriminals who are attempting to frighten and trick their potential victims into making payments for some false claims.

It appears the cybercriminals got their potential victims old passwords from a hack or security breach of a few internet giants, which took place months ago. The cybercriminals then created the fake email (see below) and place the password in them to convince the recipients their claims are true.

But, the internet giants affected by the security breach have forced their users to change their passwords to prevent the cybercriminals from gaining access to their accounts. So, those old passwords will not help the cybercrooks.

"I am a Hacker Who Has Access to Your Operating System" Scam

This information concerns the security of your account:

Hi!

I am a hacker who has access to your operating system.

I also have full access to your account: At the time of hacking your account([email address]) had this password:

You can say: this is my, but old password!

Or: I can change my password at any time!

Of course! You will be right,

but the fact is that when you change the password, my malicious code every time saved a new one!

I've been watching you for a few months now.

But the fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.

If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.

Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.

This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.

I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence from e-mail and messangers.

Why your antivirus did not detect my malware?

Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.

I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.

With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks. I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.

If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $747 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1BDePsBcraa7qgPZNcU2PK5QgbpBarRGZc

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again.

I give you 48 hours to pay.

I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.

Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address.

And please do not try to answer me (the sender's address is automatically generated).

I do not make any mistakes!

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.

Bye!

    Sent: Tue, 11 Jun 2019 2:30

    Subject: I hacked your device nedlohuk@aol.com and you have a problem now...

    Hi.

    I think you will not be happy, because I have a very bad news for you.

    Just a few months ago (05/03/2019) 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 the last 2 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 4 videos:

    Nedlohuk_aol_com_1556418019.mp4 (43.8 MB)

    Nedlohuk_aol_com_1556228376.mp4 (51.2 MB)

    Nedlohuk_aol_com_1559740210.mp4 (110.5 MB)

    Nedlohuk_aol_com_1558466307.mp4 (78.1 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.

    2000 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 0.292437 BTC to my address:

    3Jh5FwxCsYeXp4nSprYmpdcWFWsSdu46WK

    (copy it and paste - it’s case sensitive)

    0.292437 BTC = 2000 dollars

    If you do not send me the Bitcoin, I promise you - I will send those 4 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.

    If you do not know how to send bitcoin, go to google and search how to do

    it. There are plenty of options like coinbase.

    Here is my address again:

    Send exactly:

    0.292437 BTC

    to my address:

    3Jh5FwxCsYeXp4nSprYmpdcWFWsSdu46WK

    Remember to send the exact amount as above! This way I will know it’s from

    you.

    Do not be angry at me. This is just my job, and you are not the only person

    I caught.

    Be angry at your fantasies - if you didn’t visit those sites for adults

    you would have no problem.. but now...

    I am waiting for your bitcoin.

    Remember, time is ticking..
