안녕하세요. ESRC(시큐리티 대응센터)입니다.
최근 "Don't forget to pay the tax within 2 days!" 제목으로 혹스(Hoax)메일이 유포중에 있어 사용자들의 주의가 필요합니다.
이번 혹스메일은 영문으로 발송되었으며, 내용은 다음과 같습니다.
Hi. How are you?
I know, it's unpleasant to start the conversation with bad news, but I have n= choice.
Few months ago, I have gained access to your devices that used by you for int=rnet browsing.
Afterwards, I could track down all your internet activities.
Here is the history of how it could become possible:
At first, I purchased from hackers the access to multiple email accounts (now=days, it is a really simple thing to do online).
As result, I could easily log in to your email account (****@********).
One week later, I installed Trojan virus in Operating Systems of all devices =f yours, which you use to open email.
Frankly speaking, it was rather straightforward (since you were opening the l=nks from your inbox emails).
Everything ingenious is quite simple. (o_0)!
My software enables me with access to all controllers inside devices of yours= like microphone, keyboard and video camera.
I could easily download to my servers all your private info, including the hi=tory of web browsing and photos.
I can effortlessly gain access to all your messengers, social networks accoun=s, emails, contact list as well as chat history.
Virus of mine constantly keeps refreshing its signatures (because it is drive=-based), and as result remains unnoticed by your antivirus.
Hence, you can already guess why I stayed undetected all this while.
As I was gathering information about you, I couldn't help but notice that you=are also a true fan of adult-content websites.
You actually love visiting porn sites and browsing through kinky videos, whil= pleasuring yourself.
I could make a few dirty records with you in the main focus and montaged seve=al videos showing the way you reach orgasm while masturbating with joy.
If you are still uncertain regarding the seriousness of my intentions, it only requires several mouse clicks for me to forward your videos to all yo=r relatives, as well as friends and colleagues.
I can also make those vids become accessible by public.
I honestly think that you do not really want that to happen, considering the =eculiarity of videos you like to watch, (you obviously know what I mean) all that kinky content can become a reason o= serious troubles for you.
However, we can still resolve this situation in the following manner:
Everything you are required to do is a single transfer of $1370 USD to my acc=unt (or amount equivalent to bitcoin depending on exchange rate at the momen= of transfer), and once the transaction is complete, I will straight away remove all the dir=y content exposing you.
After that, you can even forget that you have come across me. Moreover, I swe=r that all the harmful software will be removed from all devices of yours as=well.
Make no doubt that I will fulfill my part.
This is really a great deal that comes at a reasonable price, given that I ha=e used quite a lot of energy to check your profile as well as traffic over a= extended period of time.
If you have no idea about bitcoin purchase process - it can be straightforwar=ly done by getting all the necessary information online.
Here is my bitcoin wallet provided below: 1N5J73F3gYPgZ8zkbnUhoryrYjQcqsA7St
You should complete the abovementioned transfer within 48 hours (2 days) afte= opening this email.
The following list contains actions you should avoid attempting:
#Do not try replying my email (email in your inbox was generated by me alongs=de with return email address).
#Do not try calling police as well as other security forces. In addition, abs=ain from sharing this story with your friends.
After I find out (be sure, I can easily do that, given that I keep complete =ontrol of all your devices) - your kinky video will end up being available t= public right away.
#Do not try searching for me - there is absolutely no reason to do that. More=ver, all transactions in cryptocurrency are always anonymous.
#Do not try reinstalling the OS on your devices or throwing them away. It is =ointless as well, since all your videos have already been uploaded to remote=servers.
The following list contains things you should not be worried about:
#That your money won't reach my account.
- Rest assured, the transactions can be tracked, hence once the transaction i= complete, I will know about it, because I continuously observe all your activities (my=trojan virus allows me to control remotely your devices, same as TeamViewer).
#That I still will share your kinky videos to public after you complete money=transfer.
- Trust me, it's pointless for me to continue troubling your life. If I reall= wanted, I would make it happen already!
Let's make this deal in a fair manner!
Owh, one more thing...in future it is best that you don't involve yourself in=similar situations any longer!
One last advice from me - recurrently change all your passwords from all acco=nts.
"나는 당신의 이메일 해킹을 통하여 PC에 악성코드를 심었다. 이를 통하여 당신의 기기에 저장되어 있는 모든 연락처 및 메신저 기록을 수집하였으며, 당신이 음란행위를 하는 동영상을 확보하였다. 이메일에 적혀있는 비트코인 지갑 주소로 내가 원한 금액을 전송하지 않으면, 이 동영상을 당신의 지인들에게 유포하겠다."
하지만 모든 혹스(Hoax) 메일이 그렇듯 해당 내용들은 모두 사실이 아니며, 수신자의 불안한 마음을 악용하여 금전적 이득을 취하려는 목적입니다.
해당 메일에 적힌 비트코인 주소 확인결과, 혹스메일을 통해 이미 0.2비트코인의 수익을 얻은 것으로 확인되었습니다.
이러한 혹스(Hoax) 메일의 경우 금전적 이득을 목표로 하기 때문에, 지속적으로 사용자들의 불안감을 유발할만한 자극적인 주제의 이메일을 유포중에 있습니다.
