So She got an email this morning from a scumbag informing her that he used some vulnerability to infiltrate her machine and he has all kinds of embarrassing files that he will publish unless She pays $1600 in Bitcoin within 2 days.
Of course it's a scam. She has nothing compromising on her machine, not even a camera. He claims to be watching her through her (non-existent) camera.
He gave his Bitcoin wallet for the payment, which made me think: If you have a criminal element's bitcoin wallet, is it possible to hack into it and drain the contents? What do you think? Just asking for a friend!
As I understand it, you would need the private key. The perp only sends you the public key.
I got the same message. I told them I would like a copy of the pictures for my album.
I think the hacking into the coins for that pipeline episode involved getting someone to provide the private key.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
