You are wondering why am i recieved this mail is a new version of the ‘(Time is started)Hello How are you’ email scam we reported about recently. In this version, the scammers changed the text of the message, adding a description of how they got access to the user’s personal files. The scammers claim to have exploited a vulnerability in Cisco routers (CVE-2019-165) that allowed them to obtain data on the victims. The scammers also changed the bitcoin address (now 1D6QyV5oENzt4e8D3iPqsu4RbeQvsHMyc6) and the size of the payment. Otherwise, everything remained the same, the scammers sent this scam to thousands of users, hoping that one of them would be naive enough to pay the required ransom.
These scam emails say that hackers hacked into your computer/phones/email account and recorded you visiting adult sites. They threaten to distribute the video to your family and friends, unless you pay into their Bitcoin account. It is a scam. The people behind these emails are scammers. Don’t pay them anyway!
