PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO SOMEONE IN YOUR COMPANY WHO IS ALLOWED TO MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS!
We are the Cozy Bear and we have chosen www.aircraftmanuals.aero as target for our next DDoS attack.
Please perform a google search for "Cozy Bear" to have a look at some of our previous work.
Your network will be subject to a DDoS attack starting at 2020 November 2nd (Monday).
THIS IS NOT A HOAX, and to prove it right now we will start a small attack on www.<redacted> that will last for 30 minutes.
It will not be heavy attack, and will not cause you any damage so don't worry, at this moment.
This means that your website, e-mail and other connected services will be unavailable for everyone.
We will refrain from attacking your servers for a small fee.
The current fee is $1150(USD) in bitcoins (BTC). The fee will increase by 1000 USD for each day after deadline that passed without payment.
Please send Bitcoin to the following Bitcoin address (cAsE-SeNsitIve):
You can easily buy bitcoins via several websites or even offline from a Bitcoin-ATM. We suggest you coinmama.com or https://buy.coingate.com/ for buying bitcoins.
Once you have paid we will automatically get informed that it was your payment. Please note that you have to make payment before the deadline or the attack WILL start!
If you decide not to pay, we will start the attack on the indicated date and uphold it until you do, there's no counter measure to this, you will only end up wasting more money trying to find a solution (Cloudflare, Sucuri, Imperva and similar services are useless, because we will hit your network directly).
