Website Hacked Bitcoin Scam

I just received  cunning attempt at scam.

Someone writes that he/she hack ed into the database and would destroy my reputation if I didn’t pay $ 2,000 in bitcoin.

This very similar bitcoin ransom scam  I wrote about here.

Let’s read it 🙂

“PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO SOMEONE IN YOUR COMPANY WHO IS ALLOWED TO MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS!

We have hacked your website https://www.projektwww.com and extracted your databases.

How did this happen?
Our team has found a vulnerability within your site that we were able to exploit. After finding the vulnerability we were able to get your database credentials and extract your entire database and move the information to an offshore server.

What does this mean?

We will systematically go through a series of steps of totally damaging your reputation. First your database will be leaked or sold to the highest bidder which they will use with whatever their intentions are. Next if there are e-mails found they will be e-mailed that their information has been sold or leaked and your site https://www.projektwww.com was at fault thusly damaging your reputation and having angry customers/associates with whatever angry customers/associates do. Lastly any links that you have indexed in the search engines will be de-indexed based off of blackhat techniques that we used in the past to de-index our targets.

How do I stop this?

We are willing to refrain from destroying your site’s reputation for a small fee. The current fee is $2000 USD in bitcoins (BTC).

Send the bitcoin to the following Bitcoin address (Copy and paste as it is case sensitive):

1Md6imvB2neTF3s1kFiMG473k1XrBhxQhF

Once you have paid we will automatically get informed that it was your payment. Please note that you have to make payment within 5 days after receiving this notice or the database leak, e-mails dispatched, and de-index of your site WILL start!

How do I get Bitcoins?

You can easily buy bitcoins via several websites or even offline from a Bitcoin-ATM. We suggest you https://cex.io/ for buying bitcoins.

What if I don’t pay?

If you decide not to pay, we will start the attack at 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. We will completely destroy your reputation amongst google and your customers.

This is not a hoax, do not reply to this email, don’t try to reason or negotiate, we will not read any replies. Once you have paid we will stop what we were doing and you will never hear from us again!

Please note that Bitcoin is anonymous and no one will find out that you have complied.

What can you do if you received this? Ignore it. Don’t pay any ransom to scammers. You can also report bitcoin address to https://bitcoinwhoswho.com/scams

Sextortion Emails Scam in Chinese

I recently wrote about bitcoin scam.  Sextortion scams are when an attacker sends emails to people stating that their computer is hacked and that the attackers have been recording the screen and webcam as the user visits adult sites. The scammers then blackmail the recipients by stating they will release the videos to friends and family if they do not receive a payment in bitcoins. Scamemrs are trying new ways and sending sextortion emails in Chinese.

This an example:

こんにちは!

私は数ヶ月前にあなたの電子メールとデバイスをクラックしたハッカーです。
あなたが訪問したサイトの1つにパスワードを入力君た。それを傍受しました。

もちろん、それを変更したり、すでに変更したりすることができます。
しかし、それは問題ではありません、私のマルウェアは毎回それを更新しました。

私に連絡したり、私を見つけようとしないでください。それは不可能です。 私はあなたのアカウントからメールをあなたに送ったので、

あなたの電子メールを介して、私はあなたのオペレーションシステムに悪質なコードをアップロードしました。
私は友人、同僚、親戚とのあなたの連絡先のすべてを保存し、インターネットリソースへの訪問の完全な履歴を保存しました。
また、あなたのデバイスにトロイの木馬をインストールしました。

あなたは私の唯一の犠牲者ではない、私は通常、デバイスをブロックし、身代金を求める。
しかし、私は頻繁に訪れる親密なコンテンツのサイトにショックを受けました。

私はあなたの幻想にショックを受けている! 私はこれのようなものを見たことがない!

だから、あなたがサイトで楽しむとき(あなたは私が何を意味するか知っています!)
あなたのカメラのプログラムを使用してスクリーンショットを作成しました。
その後、私はそれらを現在閲覧されているサイトのコンテンツに結合しました。

これらの写真を連絡先に送信すると素晴らしいことがあります。
しかし、あなたがそれを望んでいないと確信しています。

したがって、私は沈黙のためにあなたからの支払いを期待しています。
私は$896が良い価格だと思います!

Bitcoin経由で支払う。
私のBTCウォレット: 1JDi4GbHUzCrrnT7BCYbnsyLyrFpNK7faP

あなたがこれを行う方法を知らない場合 – Googleに「BTCウォレットに送金する方法」を入力します。 難しくない。
指定された金額を受け取ると、妥協しているすべての材料は自動的に破壊されます。私のウイルスはあなた自身のオペレーティングシステムからも削除されます。

私のトロイの木馬は自動アラートを持っています。私はこのメールを読んだ後でメッセージを受け取ります。

私はあなたに支払いのための2日間を与える(正確に48時間)。
これが起こらない場合 – すべてのあなたの連絡先はあなたの暗い秘密の生活からクレイジーショットを取得します!
あなたが妨害しないように、あなたのデバイスはブロックされます(また、48時間後)

ばかなことしないで!
警察や友人はあなたを確実に助けません…

p.s. 私はあなたに将来のアドバイスを与えることができます。 安全でないサイトにはパスワードを入力しないでください。

私はあなたの慎重さを願っています。
お別れ。

 

In English:

Hello!

I am a hacker who cracked your email and devices several months ago.
You entered your password on one of the sites you visited. I intercepted it.

Of course, you can change it or change it already.
But that is not a problem, my malware has updated it every time.

Please do not contact me or try to find me. That is impossible. Since I sent you an email from your account,

Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your operating system.
I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and saved a complete history of visits to internet resources.
Also installed Trojan horse on your device.

You are not my only victim, I usually block the device and ask for ransom.
However, I was shocked by the frequently visited intimate content site.

I am shocked by your illusion! I have never seen something like this!

So when you enjoy on the site (you know what I mean!)
I made a screenshot using the program of your camera.
After that, I combined them with the contents of the site currently being viewed.

Sending these photos to your contacts is wonderful.
But I am sure that you do not want it.

Therefore, I am expecting payment from you for silence.
I think $ 896 is a good price!

Pay via Bitcoin.
My BTC wallet: 1JDi4GbHUzCrrnT7BCYbnsyLyrFpNK7faP

If you do not know how to do this – enter “How to transfer money to BTC Wallet” to Google. It is not difficult.
Upon receipt of the specified amount, all compromised materials are automatically destroyed. My virus will also be deleted from your own operating system.

My Trojan has an automatic alert. I will receive a message after reading this mail.

I will give you two days for payment (exactly 48 hours).
If this does not happen – all your contacts will get a crazy shot from your dark secret life!
Your device will be blocked so that you will not interfere (also after 48 hours)

Do not be stupid!
Police and friends will definitely not help you …

p.s. I can give you future advice. Please do not enter password for unsafe sites.

I am wishing for your cautiousness.
Farewell. ”

You should check your email password, ask your hosting company if you email was compromised. Just for sure.

 

No matter what the cheater writes in the mail, how convincing he would – never pay the ransom.

 

You can report scam on bitcoinwhoswho.com/

Email hack scam and Bitcoin ransom

Recently I stumbled on email scam. It’s very interesting, because the scammers use bitcoin cryptocurrency. The scammers claim they know the “secrets” and have access to the e-mail account and social media accounts. If you got such an e-mail, you can change the password to the e-mail account and ask (just in case) if there was any break-in to your server.

Below is the content of the email:

“Hello!
I’m a member of an international hacker group.

As you could probably have guessed, your account [email address here] was hacked, because I sent message you from your account.

Now I have access to all your accounts!
For example, your password for [email address here]

Within a period from July 31, 2018 to October 3, 2018, you were infected by the virus we’ve created, through an adult website you’ve visited.
So far, we have access to your messages, social media accounts, and messengers.
Moreover, we’ve gotten full damps of these data.

We are aware of your little and big secrets…yeah, you do have them. We saw and recorded your doings on porn websites. Your tastes are so weird, you know..

But the key thing is that sometimes we recorded you with your webcam, syncing the recordings with what you watched!
I think you are not interested show this video to your friends, relatives, and your intimate one…

Transfer $800 to our Bitcoin wallet: 1F5csJmyf3yJs5s25tZmYKoFXznR452er9
If you don’t know about Bitcoin please input in Google “buy BTC”. It’s really easy.

I guarantee that after that, we’ll erase all your “data” 🙂

A timer will start once you read this message. You have 48 hours to pay the above-mentioned amount.

Your data will be erased once the money are transferred.
If they are not, all your messages and videos recorded will be automatically sent to all your contacts found on your devices at the moment of infection.

You should always think about your security.
We hope this case will teach you to keep secrets.
Take care of yourself.”

It seems that the fraudsters use ignorance of webmaster.  At the beginning, I checked the bitcoin address on this page. It shows: “Scam Alert: This address has been reported as fraudulent (9 times).”

How do you think how many people can be fooled? Please don’t pay these scammers.

 

Hashflare review for DASH Mining plan

Are you cryptocurrency miner or trader? Last year I tried Dash mining.

What is DASH? Following Wikipedia dash is “Dash (formerly known as Darkcoin and XCoin) is an open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency. On top of Bitcoin’s feature set, it currently offers instant transactions (InstantSend),private transactions (PrivateSend) and operates a self-governing and self-funding model that enables the Dash network to pay individuals and businesses to perform work that adds value to the network. Dash’s decentralized governance and budgeting system makes it a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).”

I have purchased 1-year plan (on 29.November 2017) for DASH mining at Hashflare. Just a very small investment of $64.

How about ROI?

Let see!

DASH Mining

DASH Mining

After 1 year I “will” receive 0.0173813 DASH = 21.09 USD 🙂

How much Dash was worth at day when I purchased plan? About $630,  now about $1350 (07.Jan.2018)

As you can see Dash mining at Hashflare is very profitable for owners, not clients.

Also according to their TOS minimal withdraw for DASH is 0.10.

For every $100 of investment you will only get about $33.

I will express the opinion in one word: SCAM!

Better choice is to buy crypto and wait.

I hope that my post will help many people.
