I Hacked Your Device and You Have a Problem Now Scam

Online users, please DO NOT follow the instructions in the "I Hacked Your Device" 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.

I Hacked Your Device and You Have a Problem Now Scam

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 Hacked Your Device" Scam

Hi.

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 4 videos:

[email address removed]_1557074047.mp4 (119.1 MB)

[email address removed]_1555285697.mp4 (64.5 MB)

[email address removed]_1558107647.mp4 (57.0 MB)

[email address removed]_1559183429.mp4 (46.3 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 0.291578 BTC to my address:

15NM7zDN9efbmATcAr66VA4eu2rUgfmwft

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

0.291578 BTC = 3300 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

Step 1: Create an account on www.localbitcoins.com

Step 2: Buy 0.291578 BITCOIN

Step 3: Send the amount on this BTC address:

15NM7zDN9efbmATcAr66VA4eu2rUgfmwft

Step 4: Contact me on this email

address:tjanssen1st_0605@yahoo.co.jp with this subject:

012VIPERMARVO-RESTOREKEYPC4102934

After this steps you will receive through email the key and a

decrypt tutorial.

Here is another list where you can buy bitcoin:

https://bitcoin.org/en/exchanges

Here is my address again:

Send exactly:

0.291578 BTC

to my address:

15NM7zDN9efbmATcAr66VA4eu2rUgfmwft

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..

    Hello!

    I am a hacker who has access to your1operating1system.

    I also have full access to your1account.

    I made a video showing1how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the1screen, and in the right half you1see the1video that you watched.

    With one click of the1mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks.

    If1you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $ 00 to my Bit*coin address.1

    You do not know1how1to buy?1Search to Google : Buy Bitcoin

    My Bitcoin address (Bit*coin Wallet) is:

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

    I give you 0 hours1(more than days) to pay.

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

    Don't try to1respond because this email address is generated. Filing a complaint somewhere1does not1make1sense because this email

    cannot be tracked like1my Bitcoin address.

    I do not make any1mistakes.

    Another scam:

    "Hi!

    Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you.

    Several months ago, I got access to the device you are using to browse the internet.

    Since that time, I have been monitoring your internet activity.

    Here is the proof I hacked this email. Your password at the time when I got access to your email: [password removed]

    Being a regular visitor of adult websites, I can confirm that it is you who is responsible for this.

    To keep it simple, the websites you visited provided me with access to your data.

    I've uploaded a Trojan horse on the driver basis that updates its signature several times per day, to make it impossible for antivirus to detect it. Additionally, it gives me access to your camera and microphone.

    Moreover, I have backed-up all the data, including photos, social media, chats and contacts.

    Just recently, I came up with an awesome idea to create the video where you c*m in one part of the screen, while the video was simultaneously playing on another screen. That was fun!

    Rest assured that I can easily send this video to all your contacts with a few clicks, and I assume that you would like to prevent this scenario.

    With that in mind, here is my proposal:

    Transfer the amount equivalent to 1700 USD to my Bitcoin wallet, and I will forget about the entire thing. I will also delete all data and videos permanently.

    In my opinion, this is a somewhat modest price for my work.

    You can figure out how to purchase Bitcoins using search engines like Google or Bing, seeing that it's not very difficult.

    My Bitcoin wallet (BTC): 1LPG5vyBTLRsKXmQgFwW95fTit9BPVupqK

    You have 48 hours to reply and you should also bear the following in mind:

    It makes no sense to reply me - the address has been generated automatically.

    It makes no sense to complain either, since the letter along with my Bitcoin wallet cannot be tracked.

    Everything has been orchestrated precisely.

    If I ever detect that you mentioned anything about this letter to anyone - the video will be immediately shared, and your contacts will be the first to receive it. Following that, the video will be posted on the web!

    P.S. The time will start once you open this letter. (This program has a built-in timer).

    Good luck and take it easy! It was just bad luck, next time please be careful."
