Police warn of porn blackmail – call for criminal report – Security

The tightener demands bitcoins for 1450 euros. The messages in the message are nonsense.

Police and the Cyber ​​Security Center warn of blackmail messages in which the blackmailer demands Bitcoin cryptocurrency and suggests that they have broken into the recipient’s computer.

– In the blackmail message, the criminals claim that they hijacked the recipient’s machine and photographed it secretly after he visited pornography sites, Häme police say in a press release.

The messages demand the recipient to urgently pay € 1,450 worth of bitcoins into the tightener’s wallet and threaten to spread sensitive information about him.

The police urge the recipients of the blackmail message to report the crime and stress that the blackmailer should not be paid under any circumstances.

According to Traficom’s Cyber ​​Security Center, recent porn blackmail messages are better translated into Finnish than those sent in previous years.

Porn blackmail campaigns are seen at regular intervals, and Finns are still blackmailed. Following scams sent in both early and March, several payments had been made to the tightener’s Bitcoin wallet. Also in these cases, the ransom requirement was about 1,500 euros.

You should also not reply to this message. This is often difficult because the sender’s address is in many cases forged.

Porn blackmail came to Finland in the summer of 2018, first in English. In previous cases, the effectiveness of intimidation has been increased by referring to a current security hole, a genuine user password revealed in a password leak and leaked to the web, or a fake email address where the sender appears to be the same as the recipient.
