Security Alert: Digital Extortion is Here!

Security Alert: Digital Extortion is Here!

There is a new scam where a hacker contacts you from a random email address or even your own address to extort money. Two recent examples are:

  • Hackers claim that they hacked your browser history, webcam and phones and have proof of adult content or infidelity. If you do not pay a ransom, they will send it to all of your contacts.
  • Hackers claim there is a bomb in your office that will go off if you do not pay a ransom.

Both scams are sent to millions of people and the hackers are just hoping to get one person to panic and send them money. If you have a reliable IT partner and solid IT security you have not been hacked. Do not reply! Delete the email and don’t worry.
