Ho la tua password! Boom dei ricatti online

Stanno spopolando ultimamente delle email di richiesta riscatto (tramite pagamenti su criptovalute quali BitCoin) da fantomatici hacker che minacciano di diffondere, ai nostri contatti, video (rubati dalla webcam) che ci riprendono durante la navigazione su siti di natura pornografica (quindi abbiamo a che fare con espliciti casi di sextorsion) mentre ci stiamo “divertendo”.
I toni sono intimidatori, perentori e spesso fanno largo uso di battutine sarcastiche.
I tempi per i pagamenti stringenti (hai poco tempo! più vai nel panico, meglio è!).

I fattori che stanno spingendo molti utenti a cedere a questi ricatti (e quindi a pagare), sono principalmente due:

  1. I ricattatori inseriscono nel messaggio una password che effettivamente fa parte delle password usate dall’utente ricattato.
  2. La mail risulta inviata dalla stessa casella di posta dell’utente ricattato.

Se sei su questa pagina perchè hai ricevuto una di queste email, voglio subito tranquillizzarti, è tutto un bluff!
Questi malintenzionati non hanno nessun video che ti ritrae e non hanno lo storico della tua navigazione, anche perchè, nel caso di un vero ricatto, chiunque avesse materiale video che ti ritraesse ti invierebbe come minimo, contestualmente alla richiesta di pagamento, uno screenshot per dimostrarlo.
Detto questo, se quella è ancora la password che stai utilizzando, è il caso di cambiarla al più presto!

Come possono, costoro, avere la tua password o utilizzare la tua casella lo scopriremo tra poco.

LE EMAIL DI RICATTO

Il corpo dei messaggi di queste email è sempre molto simile, qui ne riportiamo alcuni che ho personalmente ricevuto su alcuni miei vecchi account di posta:

Hello my nickname in darknet is MefistoHck.
I’ll begin by saying that I hacked this mailbox info@email.com (please look on ‘from’ in your header) more than six months ago, through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

Even if you changed the password after that – it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer and automatically saved access for me.

I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history. Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit. You have a very wild imagination, I tell you!

During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching. Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!

I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right?
If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $650 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created.

Send the above amount on my bitcoin wallet: 185gW4GcknvLbjxdF7JERypWNFmtrn3FCq
As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it.

Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device.
Also, I’ll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it!

Since reading this letter you have 48 hours!
After your reading this message, I’ll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter.

I hope I taught you a good lesson.
Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don’t enter your passwords anywhere!
Good luck!

Greetings, my victim.
I know your password – YourPassword

This is my last warning.

I write you inasmuch as I put a trojan on the web page with pornography which you have visited.
My malware grabbed all your personal data and switched on your webcam which captured the process of your masturbation. Just after that the trojan saved your contact list.
I will remove the compromising video and data if you pay me 500 USD in bitcoin. This is wallet address for payment : 135qVXXBZb3v2tQcLJRA8UAndiUYNybh3J
(you can google on “how to buy bitcoin”)

I give you 24 hours after you view my message for making the payment.
As soon as you view the message I’ll know it right away.
It is not necessary to tell me that you have sent money to me. This address is connected to you, my system will delete everything automatically after transfer confirmation.
You can visit the police office but no one can’t help you.
If you try to cheat me, I’ll see it immediately!
I don’t live in your country. So nobody can’t track my location even for 9 months.
Don’t forget about the disgrace and to ignore, Your life can be ruined.

I know YourPassword is your passphrase. Lets get directly to the purpose. You don’t know me and you are most likely thinking why you are getting this mail? No-one has paid me to check about you.

Well, I setup a software on the 18+ streaming (sexually graphic) web site and guess what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were viewing video clips, your web browser began functioning as a Remote control Desktop that has a keylogger which provided me access to your screen as well as web cam. Immediately after that, my software gathered all of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as e-mailaccount. And then I created a double video. First part shows the video you were viewing (you’ve got a good taste : )), and 2nd part shows the view of your webcam, yea its you.

There are 2 possibilities. We are going to review these options in details:

1st option is to just ignore this e mail. In such a case, I am going to send your very own tape to every one of your personal contacts and thus just imagine concerning the awkwardness you will get. Or should you be in an intimate relationship, how this will affect?

Other option will be to give me $2000. We will refer to it as a donation. Then, I most certainly will instantaneously eliminate your video. You will continue your way of life like this never happened and you would never hear back again from me.

You’ll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

BTC Address to send to: 1FBAeykkYVTLNjtt67nxTMk3V6DPXSZxGv
[case-sensitive copy and paste it]

In case you are thinking about going to the cops, anyway, this e mail can not be traced back to me. I have covered my steps. I am not looking to demand a lot, I simply want to be paid for.

You now have one day in order to make the payment. I have a unique pixel within this mail, and now I know that you have read this email. If I do not receive the BitCoins, I definitely will send your video recording to all of your contacts including relatives, co-workers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I’ll destroy the video right away. If you want to have proof, reply with Yeah! & I will certainly send your video to your 5 contacts. It is a non:negotiable offer, therefore please do not waste mine time and yours by replying to this email.

I‌ am a‌ware YourPassword o‌n‌e o‌f yo‌ur pass wo‌rds.
L‌ets g‌et right to‌ po‌int. N‌ei‌th‌er a‌nyo‌n‌e has compensa‌ted m‌e to‌ ch‌eck yo‌u. Yo‌u do‌ no‌t know me a‌nd yo‌u’r‌e mo‌st lik‌ely wo‌nd‌eri‌ng why you’r‌e getting thi‌s ‌e ma‌i‌l?

L‌et m‌e tell yo‌u, i‌ insta‌ll‌ed a‌ softwa‌re o‌n th‌e a‌dult vi‌d‌eo cli‌ps (porno) w‌eb si‌t‌e and you kno‌w what, yo‌u vi‌si‌ted thi‌s si‌te to‌ ha‌v‌e fun (yo‌u kno‌w wha‌t i‌ mean). Wh‌en yo‌u w‌er‌e vi‌ewing vi‌deo‌s, yo‌ur w‌eb brows‌er sta‌rt‌ed o‌ut functi‌o‌ni‌ng a‌s a RDP tha‌t has a k‌ey lo‌gg‌er which ga‌v‌e m‌e a‌cc‌essi‌bility to‌ yo‌ur scre‌en a‌nd w‌eb cam. a‌ft‌er tha‌t, my so‌ftwa‌r‌e ga‌th‌er‌ed ‌every o‌n‌e o‌f yo‌ur co‌ntacts fro‌m yo‌ur M‌ess‌eng‌er, Fa‌c‌ebo‌ok, a‌s w‌ell a‌s ‌email . a‌ft‌er tha‌t i ma‌d‌e a‌ do‌ubl‌e vi‌d‌eo‌. Fi‌rst part sho‌ws th‌e vid‌eo yo‌u w‌ere vi‌‌ewing (yo‌u ha‌v‌e a‌ fi‌n‌e ta‌st‌e lmao‌), a‌nd next part displa‌ys th‌e vi‌‌ew o‌f your ca‌m, y‌eah it i‌s yo‌u.

You have two‌ differ‌ent po‌ssibi‌li‌ti‌es. We will lo‌o‌k a‌t ‌ea‌ch o‌n‌e o‌f th‌es‌e so‌luti‌ons i‌n d‌eta‌i‌ls:

1st so‌luti‌o‌n i‌s to‌ skip this ‌ema‌i‌l. in tha‌t case, i a‌m go‌i‌ng to‌ send yo‌ur vi‌d‌eo‌ reco‌rding to every bi‌t o‌f yo‌ur p‌erso‌nal conta‌cts and yo‌u ca‌n ‌ea‌si‌ly ima‌gi‌n‌e a‌bout th‌e ‌emba‌rra‌ssment you wi‌ll g‌et. and co‌ns‌equ‌ently if yo‌u a‌re i‌n a‌n i‌mporta‌nt r‌elati‌o‌nship, ho‌w i‌t wi‌ll ‌ev‌entua‌lly a‌ff‌ect?

La‌tter so‌lutio‌n wo‌uld b‌e to‌ pa‌y m‌e $7000. W‌e wi‌ll ca‌ll it a do‌na‌ti‌on. in thi‌s sc‌ena‌ri‌o, i‌ wi‌ll i‌nsta‌ntan‌eo‌usly ‌era‌s‌e yo‌ur vi‌d‌eo. You ca‌n co‌nti‌nu‌e o‌n your wa‌y o‌f li‌f‌e li‌ke thi‌s never too‌k place a‌nd yo‌u n‌ev‌er wi‌ll h‌ear back a‌ga‌i‌n from m‌e.

You will mak‌e th‌e pa‌ym‌ent thro‌ugh Bi‌tco‌i‌n (i‌f yo‌u do‌ no‌t kno‌w thi‌s, s‌ea‌rch ‘ho‌w to‌ buy bi‌t‌coi‌n’ i‌n Goo‌gl‌e s‌ea‌rch ‌engin‌e).

LA TUA PASSWORD

Come fanno dunque questi individui ad avere la tua password?
Semplice, hanno attinto ad uno dei tanti database presenti nel web e provenienti da leak, data breaches di siti vari che sono caduti sotto qualche attacco hacker ( eventi che sono all’ordine del giorno e riguardano siti di ogni genere e tipologia,  dal gigante Yahoo ai siti per adulti ).
Siti ai quali ti eri registrato e che sono stati “bucati”.
Questo dovrebbe farti capire perchè sia tanto importante non utilizzare sempre la stessa password per tutto!!!

Perciò, mi ripeto, se stai ancora utilizzando quella password, è tempo di cambiarla…immediatamente!

VERIFICA SE LE TUE EMAIL E LE TUE PASSWORD SIANO FINITE IN RETE

Esiste un sito, molto noto, che permette di verificare se i tuoi indirizzi email (e relative password…se non anche ulteriori dati inseriti) siano stati compromessi da qualche data breach:

Ti basta andare sul sito ed inserire il tuo indirizzo email.
Non è assolutamente improbabile che la tua email sia stata compromessa, soprattutto se è una mail che ha qualche anno di vita alle spalle.

LE EMAIL SONO INVIATE DAL TUO ACCOUNT

Nella stragrande maggioranza dei casi, l’email risulta inviata dal tuo stesso account tramite semplici trucchi.
Esistono addirittura siti appositamente creati (ad esempio Emkei) per divertirsi con questi “giochetti”, basati sulle impostazioni del messaggio di posta.

Poi è chiaro che se dal momento del “leak” la password associata alla tua email è ancora la stessa, allora è sicuramente  possibile che qualcuno si sia fatto un giretto sul tuo account!!!

 

Update: altri esempi di email sextorsion in circolazione.

Hello my nickname in darknet is Th3G8N1TER.

I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history. Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching. Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!
