Experts told about the new form of fraud

Experts have identified the most massive malicious newsletter in the past year. They became the so-called “pornography”. Its essence is quite simple. Hackers send a conditional user the information that they have compromising an intimate character to him. We are talking about screenshots of downloadable web pages of porn sites, as well as photos from a PC webcam, which were allegedly obtained using a special virus.

The user is prompted to follow the link and, if this is done, then a cryptographic virus will be loaded into the operating system, blocking access to the data stores. After that, according to the classical scheme, criminals begin to extort money for unblocking access.

Security experts recommend caution and not to respond to such provocations in order to protect themselves and their device.
