Myantispyware team discovered a new variant of the “I am a hacker who has access to your operating system” email scam. In order to bypass spam blockers and spam filters, the authors of this scam made a change to the text of emails. Attackers replaced some characters of the English language with their equivalents from other languages, and also began to use a new Bitcoin wallet. The size of the ransom changed to 920 dollars.
The full text of the email scam is:
