Here is how the phishing email looks.


 

From: “XXX” <XXX@cuhk.edu.hk>
Sent: 23 Nov 2019 (Sat) 10:46AM/29 Nov 2019 (Fri) 9:22AM
Subject: I own your information!

 

Hello.

You may not know me and you are probably won¬dering why you are getting this email, right?
I’ve been observation you for a few two months.

You can check it – I sent this message from your acc¬ount xxx@cuhk.edu.hk

The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.

After that, I made a full du¬mp of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

If you are not familiar with this. I’ll tell you. With the help of a vi¬rus, I can control every action on your devices

This means that I can see everything on your scr¬een, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.

Why your antiv¬irus did not detect malware? answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 3 hours so that your antivirus is silent.
I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the scre¬en, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.

With one click of the mouse, I can send this vi¬deo to all your emails and contacts.
If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $794 to my bitcoin address
(if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: “Buy Bitcoin”).
My bit¬coin address (BTC Wallet) is: 17fjtBvkQCMJduzZQB4GZtxJvxgXrceSMt

After receiving the paym¬ent, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again. I give you 48 hours to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.
Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bit¬coin address.
I do not make any mistakes.

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the vi¬deo will be immediately distributed.
