Malicious Emails

My VPN (ExpressVPN) is advising to beware of scam emails. Useful advice at any time:

"Phishing attacks related to Covid-19 have shot up by 667% from February to March, and they’ve come in various forms, from phishing emails that claim the recipient has been in close contact with someone who has Covid-19 to malicious apps and documents that purportedly have information about the pandemic but install malware on your device.

Ask these 5 questions about your emails

We’ve written about how to defend against phishing attacks before, but here’s a quick checklist of things to look out for in an email that you suspect is a phishing scam.

1 Is the email unexpected?
2 Does the sender’s email address have a suspicious domain?
3 Are there typos or grammatical and punctuation errors?
4 Does its message require urgent action from you to either click a link or fill out personal information?
5 Does the message header indicate a dubious origin? You can verify an email’s origin with Google’s Messageheader inspection tool.

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, the email could be a phishing attempt.

If something seems off, it probably is. Mark it as spam and delete it from your inbox. Do not reply, click any links or download and open attachments."

Re: Malicious Emails

If you get an email marked " Nude photo of Hilary Clinton"- do not open it

It contains a nude photo of Hilary Clinton

Re: Malicious Emails

The scammers are very busy out there. One of my ladies of 86 years old has had a couple of typed messages sent to her home by post and they have even got her middle name correct. And they know she used to live in S. Africa. Makes you wonder which government body has been hacked to get such information.

Re: Malicious Emails

I received this today: Cassandra Sever <qnawebsteryke@outlook.com>
Fri 10/04/2020 02:22
I know, napefawu, is your password. You don't know me and you're thinking why you received this e mail, right?

Well, I actually placed a malware on the porn website and guess what, you visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching the video, your web browser acted as a RDP (Remote Desktop) and a keylogger which provided me access to your display screen and webcam. Right after that, my software gathered all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook account, and email account.

What exactly did I do?

I made a split-screen video. First part recorded the video you were viewing (you've got a fine taste haha), and next part recorded your webcam (Yep! It's you doing nasty things!).

What should you do?

Well, I believe, $1900 is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin to the below address (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).

BTC Address:
bc1qajsj0p8xrfkndcz7pk65j3qr93e3a2yrh3dgv6
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

Important:

You have 24 hours in order to make the payment. (I have an unique pixel within this email message, and right now I know that you have read this email). If I don't get the payment, I will send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I will erase the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will send your video recording to your 5 friends. This is a non-negotiable offer, so don't waste my time and yours by replying to this email.

Cassandra

Re: Malicious Emails

That is known as "ransomeware"
Sometimes they use a fake official looking police type notification
