El otro día me ha llegado un correo de amenaza/estafa en el que salía una de mis contraseñas antiguas y me decía que tenían grabaciones de mi webcam. En este artículo breve te explico la verdad que hay detrás de este tipo de correos, y cómo puedes prevenir que esto te pase a ti.
En qué consiste la estafa
Te llega un correo electrónico como el siguiente:
I am well aware [CONTRASEÑA] one of your pass word. Lets get directly to the point. You may not know me and you are probably thinking why you are getting this e-mail? Not a single person has paid me to check you.
Let me tell you, I actually setup a software on the 18+ vids (porn) web-site and do you know what, you visited this website to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were viewing videos, your internet browser started working as a Remote Desktop having a key logger which provided me access to your display screen and also web cam. after that, my software gathered all of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as email . And then I created a double video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you’ve got a nice taste ; )), and second part shows the recording of your web camera, and its u.
You have got just two solutions. We should check out each of these options in aspects:
Very first solution is to neglect this e mail. Then, I most certainly will send out your actual tape to all your your contacts and just consider regarding the disgrace you can get. Do not forget if you happen to be in a romance, just how it will eventually affect?
Other option will be to compensate me $2000. We will think of it as a donation. As a consequence, I will promptly delete your videotape. You will resume your daily ro utine like this never took place and you will not hear back again from me.
You will make the payment through Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).
BTC Address: [CUENTA DE BITCOIN]
[case-sensitive, copy and paste it]
If you are making plans for going to the law enforcement, look, this e-mail can not be traced back to me. I have covered my actions. I am also not trying to charge a fee a huge amount, I simply prefer to be paid for.
You now have one day to pay. I have a unique pixel in this e mail, and right now I know that you have read this message. If I don’t get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your video to all of your contacts including family members, co-workers, and so on. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I will erase the recording immediately. If you want to have evidence, reply with Yeah! and I will send out your video to your 7 friends. This is a nonnegotiable offer so please do not waste my personal time and yours by replying to this mail.
I am aware [CONTRASEÑA] is your passphrase. Lets get right to purpose. You do not know me and you are most likely wondering why you are getting this e-mail? Not a single person has paid me to check about you.
Well, I actually placed a software on the 18+ streaming (porn material) website and you know what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean). When you were watching videos, your internet browser initiated functioning as a RDP having a keylogger which provided me access to your display screen and also web camera. Immediately after that, my software program obtained all of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as e-mailaccount. Next I created a video. First part displays the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam, yeah it is you.
There are two solutions. We should review these choices in aspects:
1st choice is to dismiss this message. In such a case, I most certainly will send out your very own videotape to almost all of your personal contacts and thus you can easily imagine regarding the humiliation yo u will see. In addition if you are in a loving relationship, precisely how it will eventually affect?
Number 2 solution will be to compensate me $4000. We are going to think of it as a donation. In this instance, I most certainly will quickly delete your videotape. You can go on your way of life like this never occurred and you would never hear back again from me.
You’ll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you don’t know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

If you are making plans for going to the law, very well, this email message can not be traced back to me. I have covered my actions. I am not looking to demand a huge amount, I wish to be paid for.

Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I will erase the video immediately. If you want to have evidence, reply Yeah & I will send your video recording to your 13 contacts. This is the non:negotiable offer thus please do not waste my personal time and yours by replying to this email message.
Donde básicamente te dicen que te han grabado viendo porno, y que le van a enviar el vídeo a todo mundo si no les pagas.
Cómo se que es una amenaza vacua
Tal y como te explico en el vídeo, lo primero es que nunca tengo la webcam conectada al ordenador, así que poco pueden haber grabado ¿No crees? Pero hay un sistema a prueba de fallos que puedes seguir:
- Guardar la calma
- Pensar qué parte del correo puede ser cierta realmente
- Copiar y pegar partes del correo en Internet a ver qué te sale (probablemente así llegaste hasta este post). Yo llegué a uno en inglés donde explican bastante bien de qué va este correo.
- Entender por qué tienen una de tus contraseñas viejas. En mi caso di con este otro post interesante. En él hablan de la web https://haveibeenpwned.com/ donde si colocas tu dirección de correo te dice si está presente en algún listado filtrado.
- Ignóralo o denúncialo ¡PERO NUNCA PAGUES! Incluso si pagas ¿Quién no te dice que dentro de una semana no te pidan más dinero? (aparte de que no te va a servir de nada pagar porque realmente no tienen ese vídeo).
Espero que te haya servido esta información, si ha sido así puedes contármelo en los comentarios. Difunde este artículo entre todos tus contactos para que no caigan en estas estafas. ¡Hasta pronto!
