Another massive attack on privacy
The Slovak antivirus company ESET has made it known that, in the Czech Republic in particular, there are new attempts to enrich these scoundrels very quickly. Of course, similar phishing scams have already been here, but it is now a campaign on a completely new gigantic scale. Even in this case, blackmail takes place via email, only it is a bit more sophisticated.
Webcam in the lead role
Precisely as a result of the pandemic, the efforts of various peeks and extortionists to rob us are becoming more and more topical. They go about it differently. They often use fraudulent emails or phone calls as a cover. He simply tries it anyway, anytime. That’s why you really need to be constantly on the lookout and in case of the slightest doubt not to be “caught”.
How does it work? These “peers” will send you a message that they have installed the RAT software on your device and have access to the camera. He further claims in it that thanks to that they caught you masturbating or doing intimate things in front of a webcam. In any case, do not react to such a threat and do not pay the ransom (even 5,000 CZK). They just want to extort money from you, they have nothing on you!
