Adult pay phone webcam
One day in Melbourne, when the sun was out and the birds were singing, Matt opened an email and was greeted with a video of a man wanking.The man was him."There I was in all my glory," he told triple j's Veronica & Lewis. A 'ransomware' program had infected his computer allowing the hackers to film him through the webcam. Now they wanted money."There was an email saying they were going to release footage to all my Facebook friends and people I worked with if I don't pay them money.""Initially I laughed."He wrote back. Matt may have been feeling very much alone, but in fact he was part of an emerging trend of ransomware attacks in Australia.It recorded about 4,000 reports of 'scams or fraud' cybercrime in a three-month period at the end of last year.Basically 'cybercrime' is hard to quantify and we don't have a clear picture.
A widespread sextortion campaign is being orchestrated by scammers who falsely claim to have webcam recordings of victims watching pornography in order to demand bitcoin payment.You don't know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this mail, right? It is a non-negotiable offer, therefore do not waste my time and yours by responding to this message."Sec Guru advised that anyone who is concerned about the blackmail threats should change their passwords and enable two-factor authentication on all accounts that offer the feature."Well, I actually placed a malware on the adult video clips (porno) web site and guess what, you visited this website to experience fun (you know what I mean)..after that, my software program gathered every one of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, and email."The emails demand payment within one day in cryptocurrency, warning the victim: "If I do not receive the Bitcoins, I will definately  send out your video recording to all of your contacts including close relatives, co-workers, and many others."Nevertheless, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the video immidiately [sic]," it adds. Authorities warn legitimate sextortion cases are currently on the rise across email and social networks.It's probably easier to just paste the email so you can see what we mean: I'm aware, [REDACTED], is your password.You don't know me and you are probably wondering why you're getting this email, right?
According to one, there were more than 200,000 ransomware attacks in Australia in April-May alone this year.
