I recently received a series of email malicious threats from some bitcoin spammer. I checked the source of the code and can only find a little bit of information on it. I believe the email attaches some JS to the email which masks the senders email and yours so when you open it you are attacked. I haven't officially opened the email, but previewed it and checked the source. Blocking my own email address is definitely not the answer. Does anybody have any ideas on how to get rid of the spammer?
1) Here is a help link but I am not sure it is the answer: https://github.com/silexlabs/Silex/issues/566?fbclid=IwAR3xkclvarBMylDLPqaZckC8oaIspGV5d5b8pJ1r4OUI5...
2) Here is what I get when I query the bitcoin address @ 1GhcNRVtFDb3GtTYuEsP1H1yMN1XncRcNn
3) The email states this:
"Your account has been infected! Change the password right away!
You might not heard about me and you are probably wondering why you're getting this particular letter, is it right?
I'mhacker who burstyour emailand devices and gadgetsa few months ago.
It will be a time wasting to try out to contact me or look for me, in fact it's impossible, because I sent you a letter using YOUR account that I've hacked.
I installed spyware on the adult vids (porn) website and suppose you enjoyed this site to have some fun (think you understand what I mean).
During you have been paying attention to videos, your browser started out to act as a RDP (Remote Control) with a keylogger which granted me authority to access your screen and webcam.
Then, my applicationaquiredall info.
You have entered passwords on the sites you visited, and I sniffed them.
Needless to say, it's possible to modify them, or possibly already modified them.
But it really doesn't matter, my spyware updates it every time.
What actually did I do?
I generated a backup of the system. Of each file and personal contacts.
I got a dual-screen movie. The first section presents the film that you were observing (you have got the perfect taste, haha...), the 2nd part displays the movie from your own webcam.
What actually must you do?
Clearly, I think, 1000 USD is basically a fair amount of money for our small riddle. You'll make your payment by bitcoins (if you do not understand this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).
My bitcoin wallet address:
(It is cAsE sensitive, so just copy and paste it).
You will have 48 hours in order to make the payment. (I put an exclusive pixel in this email, and at the moment I understand that you have read this email).
To tracethe reading of a letterand the actionsinside it, I installeda Facebook pixel. Thanks to them. (The stuff thatcan be usedfor the authorities may helpus.)
If I do not get bitcoins, I'll immediately direct your recording to all your contacts, such as family members, co-workers, and so forth?"
4) DNS Analysis on the url says this:
Hey there @susanf1
They're scammers. Don't believe what they're saying, number one. Number two, report this to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be dealt with. Other than that, I would change all your passwords on everything just to make sure your safe and you may want to run a malware scan on your site just in case, as well.
