Some of our users reported a Bitcoin email scam that they have received, with the following message from the hacker:

Hello! `
This is important information for you!
Some months ago I hacked your OS and got full access to your account *********
On day of hack your account ******* has password: ********
So, you can change the password, yes.. Or already changed… But my malware intercepts it every time.
How I made it:
In the software of the router, through which you went online, was a vulnerability. I used it…
If you interested you can read about it: CVE-2019-1663 – a vulnerability in the web-based management interface of the Cisco routers.
I just hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.
When you went online, my trojan was installed on the OS of your device.
After that, I made a full backup of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).
A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a not big amount of btc to unlock.
But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and I was shocked by what I saw!!!
I’m talk you about sites for adults.
I want to say – you are a BIG pervert. Your fantasy is shifted far away from the normal course!
And I got an idea….
I made a screenshot of the adult sites where you have fun (do you understand what it is about, huh?).
After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and glued them together.
Turned out amazing! You are so spectacular!
I’m know that you would not like to show these screenshots to your friends, relatives or colleagues.
I think $762 is a very, very small amount for my silence.
Besides, I have been spying on you for so long, having spent a lot of time!
Pay ONLY in Bitcoins!
My BTC wallet: 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5
You do not know how to use bitcoins?
Enter a query in any search engine: “how to replenish btc wallet”.
It’s extremely easy
For this payment I give you two days (48 hours).
As soon as this letter is opened, the timer will work.
After payment, my virus and dirty screenshots with your enjoys will be self-destruct automatically.
If I do not receive from you the specified amount, then your device will be locked, and all your contacts will receive a screenshots with your “enjoys”.
I hope you understand your situation.
– Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data, files and screenshots is already uploaded to a remote server)
– Do not try to contact me (you yourself will see that this is impossible, the sender address is automatically generated)
– Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help, since your data is already on a remote server.
P.S. You are not my single victim. so, I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment!
This is the word of honor hacker
I also ask you to regularly update your antiviruses in the future. This way you will no longer fall into a similar situation.
Do not hold evil! I just good do my job.
Good luck.

A majority of antivirus programs have detected the virus using 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5 Bitcoin Wallet. You can see the attached report from VirusTotal below:

A new shady scheme for money extortion has recently been gaining popularity among the cyber criminal circles and the number of its victims has been rapidly growing. The scheme is based on an email blackmail scam that involves sending an email message to random web users which contains a threatening notification. The message typically claims that a hacker has gained access to the computer and has infected it with a hidden malware which now is under their command. In order to please the criminal and to stop him from destroying the system or exploiting its data for malicious purposes, the victims are asked to pay ransom to a given BitCoin wallet. They are normally given a deadline to make the payment, after which the hacker threatens to do something nasty with the machine (extract sensitive information and publish it online, misuse the victim’s passwords, disclose personal details, destroy the system, etc.) if no money enters his account. Apart from being very scary, this email BitCoin Scam could also be related to the distribution of a real infection from the Trojan Horse type called 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5 Bitcoin Email. The criminals behind this threat typically focus on spamming the users’ mailboxes with different phishing messages and scams which secretly deliver the malware inside the computer the moment the people interact with the carrier message. 

Unfortunately, there are already many cases of infection with 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5 Bitcoin Wallet, as well as many cases where the users have been tricked to pay ransom to the hackers who distribute email BitCoin scam messages (1HB3KtKoguFuZ4BdmCv9Fc4tYTwDQgmqmW14poC1Jg97vuvsyoKSZYz7h276LoAZcrtn. Security professionals, however, warn that giving money to some self-proclaimed hackers without actually dealing with the potential infection is the worst course of action. The first thing one should do in case they receive a ransom-demanding email message is to check their machine with a reliable antivirus program and see if they really have malware inside the system. If the results of the full scan show no actual infection, then most probably the message in the inbox is nothing but a ruse – a fake message sent from people with malicious intentions whose idea is to trick you into sending your money for no reason.

If a Trojan such as 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5 Bitcoin Email is detected in the system, however, then you should take the matter seriously. It is perfectly possible that you might have been compromised by a cyber criminal who is now using his access to the machine to blackmail you. In this case, you need to take immediate actions to remove the infection and block the unauthorized access of the hacker with the help of a professional removal tool or via manual instructions. Otherwise, a Trojan Horse like the one we speak about could cause a lot of trouble. Not only it can provide its criminal creators with secret control over the infected computer but it can also create serious security holes which can open the door for nastier pieces of malware like Ransomware or Spyware. Receiving blackmail emails could be just the beginning of what could expect you if you don’t remove the infection on time. That’s why, if 1EGgvLwVTQ3UGnjk4LzcPwyXaEk2Fioqd5 has nested inside your PC we recommend you to immediately take actions to delete it with the help of the instructions below or by using the professional removal tool attached in the guide.
