I have friends from New Zealand staying with me, and one of them just received the following email (from his own email address): ********************* Hello! My nickname in darknet is ramon96. I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago, through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time. So, your password from firstname.lastname@example.org is ************ Even if you changed the password after that - it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer and automatically saved access for me. I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history. Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos. I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit. You have a very wild imagination, I tell you! During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching. Oh my god! You are so funny and excited! I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right? If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $860 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created. Send the above amount on my BTC wallet (bitcoin): 1FHPbKHcSx9CaXJzDpLoXG733ipQ77UNx9 As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it. Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device. Also, I'll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it! Since reading this letter you have 48 hours! After your reading this message, I'll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter. I hope I taught you a good lesson. Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don't enter your passwords anywhere! Good luck! ************* So, I’m not sure if he has been looking at weird porn sites, but I gather that the sender does have his login and password. He has asked me for advice and I have no clue what to tell him. My gut feeling is to ignore it... Any advice?
