Received following email:
I have to share bad news with you.
Approximately a few months ago, I gained access to your devices, which you use for internet browsing. After that, I have started tracking your internet activities.
Here is the sequence of events:
Some time ago, I purchased access to email accounts from hackers (nowadays, it is quite simple to buy it online). I have easily managed to log in to your email account.
One week later, I have already installed the Cobalt Strike Beacon on the Operating Systems of all the devices you use to access your email. It was not hard at all (Google Zero-day exploits). All ingenious is simple. :)
This software provides me with Initial Access to all your devices.
I have downloaded all your information, data, photos, videos, documents, files, web browsing history to my servers. I have access to all your messengers, social networks, emails, chat history, and contacts list.
My virus continuously refreshes the signatures (it is driver-based) and hence remains invisible for antivirus software. Likewise, I guess by now you understand why I have stayed undetected until this letter.
If you have doubts, I can make a few clicks of my mouse, and all your videos will be shared with your friends, colleagues, coworkers, and relatives. I also have no issue at all with making them available for public access (leaked and exposed all data). General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): Under the rules of the law, you face a heavy fine or arrest. I guess you don't want that to happen. Considering the specificity of the videos you like to watch (you perfectly know what I mean), it will cause a real catastrophe for you.
Let's settle it this way:
You transfer 1 Bitcoin to me and once the transfer is received, I will delete all this dirty stuff right away.
