    We recently wrote a blog about a scam that was going around suggesting a “damnific program” had captured video while the user was browsing an adult site.

    We’ve had no reports of anyone having a video released and currently, it’s safe to say you can just delete and ignore this!

    Have you received this or one similar? Please help others and post below.

    Ensure your Anti-virus is up to date and the system is scanned on boot-up, as well as email filters are being used on corporate email systems.

    Hi,

    Got one of these emails this morning on my Laptop at my shop.

    I don’t have all the text as I just deleted the email. But I did a quick google search with the bit of text I cut and pasted.

    This is the part I cut and pasted.

    Good afternoon
    Your OS was monitored by the virus…
    What happened?
    I installed the malware on a porn web site, you tapped on the record and at once downloaded the virus to your system.
    The virus started your front cam recording so I have the videotape with you masturbating. In next 5 hours the damnific program sent me all your contacts.
    So, I have all your data and tape with you masturbating, so if you need me to destroy all the evidence – transfer me 295 euro in bitcoin. Otherwise I will forward the record to all your friends.

    My email said I am sorry for my grammar- Im from China.

    This Shows us there are quite a few subtle variants of the email,and it looks like I would be a bit cheaper than others on here at 295 euros.

    Hi all, I received one of these emails this morning. It’s practically the same format as the others with just minor details changed. I’ve copied the full email below but can anyone advise if there have been any follow ups or video releases? I know it is clearly SPAM and I am expecting the answer to be no, but I do note that the emails posted in here were done so within the given deadline timeframe without further update or confirmation. Can someone put my mind at ease that nothing came of this? Thanks

    I’ve just see this was posted by “Nexus”. Assuming there would’ve been an update if anything came of this!

    We’ve had no reports of people having photos leaked and we’ve certainly not been on any Adult sites so in our case it’s 100% a scam!

    Hi. So I got this email with the subject ‘a good lesson for you (insert name):

    Your notebook computer was attacked by the detrimental file .

    Whats going down?

    I set my malware on a porno Internet resource, you pressed this info and immediately adjusted the malware to your gadget .

    The badware made your front-facing camera making video in such a way I own a video record with you chaturbating.

    In next 4 hours this badware copied all your contact information.

    t the moment, I capture all your info and videorecord with you chaturbating, so in a case if you desire me to shut down all the contacts pay me 386 dollars in BTC cryptocurrency.

    In other circumstances I will forward the videotape to all your acquaintance .

    The thing that is worrying me is that my name was written in the subject and body of the email. And the fact that I have a notebook laptop?

    Hi,

    This is a complete fake scam – I also received the same email – the reason I know it is just a scam and the sender of the email is lying – is that they did not record anything, they did not activate my webcam, as I do not have a webcam to activate.

    This message is fake, ignore it.

    However, I can see the fear and disgusting invasion of privacy this email hints at -blackmail – nasty. So I had to write.

    Cover up laptop / webcam screen with tape or close laptop lid if using external monitor.

    Do all usual safety checks (anti-virus) – log out of ALL other sites (like FB) you don’t want to accidently share now do you?

    Never, ever pay anyone who issues such threats – even if it could be true (this one was not)- they wont delete your data after you pay (even if they have it) – they have no feedback system so they have no reason to work on deleting it:) They are already lowlifes – so they will just say – price increased, pay again.

    There is no gain in releasing anything – this is based on fear – not action – mostly they don’t have anything of worth anyway – and if you don’t pay – they are not interested in actually releasing it. (that does not pay the criminal bills and leaves a potential trail to be caught)

    If you pay – you will be targeted – relentlessly.

    If you pay – you create more bad guys doing it.

    So what, if all your contacts see you having private fun – most will be in horror that they may have been recorded when they were doing the same and will take little notice of your liberal life 🙂

    Stay safe – stay smart and don’t let these people intimidate you.

    I received an identical email to samdocherty yesterday.
    The only difference was the bitcoin address.
