Arnaque au mot de passe piraté

Votre mot de passe vous est envoyé par courriel par un inconnu qui vous demande une rançon

Un inconnu affirme avoir piraté votre ordinateur puis vous envoie par courriel votre mot de passe. La menace semble bien réelle ! Car il s’agit en effet de votre mot de passe.

Cette personne continue en affirmant ensuite avoir des informations compromettante sur vous. Puis il vous demande une rançon en échange de son silence. Cette rançon sous forme de bitcoin est due sous 48 heures.

Une arnaque bien ficelée

Ne cédez pas à la panique ! Car en y regardant de plus près, il y a sans doute un détail qui cloche.

Que dire du mot de passe en lui même ? En effet, c’est votre mot de passe. Ou plutôt, ne serait-ce pas plutôt juste de dire : C’était votre de passe ?

Car, à moins de n’en avoir jamais changé depuis des années, le mot de passe annoncé dans le courriel n’est plus celui que vous utilisez aujourd’hui.

Des escrocs se sont en effet emparés d’une liste de mot de passe piratés. Ils envoient ensuite des courriels à toutes les personnes listées en affirmant posséder leurs mots de passe.

Ensuite, ils utilisent les techniques classiques des arnaques. Considérons par exemple : Faire peur au destinataire, ne pas lui laisser le temps de réfléchir, lui faire croire qu’il n’y a pas d’autres issues. Ne versez aucune rançon !

Se prémunir de cette arnaque

Afin de réduire les risques, suivez les conseils habituels en ce qui concerne les mots de passe :

  • Utilisez un mot de passe différent pour chaque site internet ou application
  • Changez de mot de passe régulièrement

Vous trouverez ci-dessous un exemple de tels courriels. Ici en anglais

Exemple de courriels d’arnaque au mot de passe piraté

Objet : Security Alert. You account has been hacked. Password 888 must be need changed.

Hello! I’m a programmer who cracked your email account and device about half year ago. You entered a password on one of the insecure site you visited, and I catched it. Your password from xxx@xxx.com on moment of crack: ***

Of course you can will change your password, or already made it. But it doesn’t matter, my rat software update it every time. Please don’t try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your email account.

Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System. I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources.

Also I installed a rat software on your device and long tome spying for you. You are not my only victim, I usually lock devices and ask for a ransom. But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you very often visit. I am in shock of your reach fantasies! Wow! I’ve never seen anything like this! I did not even know that SUCH content could be so exciting!

So, when you had fun on intime sites (you know what I mean!) I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device. After that, I jointed them to the content of the currently viewed site. Will be funny when I send these photos to your contacts! And if your relatives see it?

BUT I’m sure you don’t want it. I definitely would not want to … I will not do this if you pay me a little amount. And I think $820 is a nice price for it! I accept only Bitcoins. My BTC wallet: 1PcFYw7PQKUnj6RxqVwZ4TFuwWUPTyECKQ

If you have difficulty with this – Ask Google « how to make a payment on a bitcoin wallet ». It’s easy. After receiving the above amount, all your data will be immediately removed automatically.

My virus will also will be destroy itself from your operating system. My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is looked, I will be know it! You have 2 days (48 hours) for make a payment. If this does not happen – all your contacts will get crazy shots with your dirty life!

And so that you do not obstruct me, your device will be locked (also after 48 hours) Do not take this frivolously! This is the last warning! Various security services or antiviruses won’t help you for sure (I have already collected all your data).

Here are the recommendations of a professional: Antiviruses do not help against modern malicious code. Just do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites! I hope you will be prudent. Bye.

Une réflexion sur « Arnaque au mot de passe piraté »

  1. Bonjour,
    je viens de recevoir cet email :

    ALERT! I’m hacked you and stolen you informationDe: ***@orange.fr
    Date: 24 mars 2022 à 01:00:17 UTC+1
    À: ***7@orange.fr
    Objet: ALERT! I’m hacked you and stolen you information

    Hey ***@orange.fr,
    I have to share bad news with you.
    Approximately few months ago I have gained access to your devices, which you use for internet browsing.
    After that, I have started tracking your internet activities.
    Some time ago I hacked you and got access to your email accounts ***@orange.fr .
    Obviously, I have easily hack to log in to your email.
    Your password: *******
    One week later, I have already installed Trojan virus to Operating Systems of all the devices that you use to access your email.
    In fact, it was not really hard at all (since you were following the links from your inbox emails).
    All ingenious is simple. =)
    This software provides me with access to all the controllers of your devices (e.g., your microphone, video camera and keyboard).
    I have downloaded all your information, data, photos, web browsing history to my servers.
    I have access to all your messengers, social networks, emails, chat history and contacts list.
    My virus continuously refreshes the signatures (it is driver-based), and hence remains invisible for antivirus software.
    Likewise, I guess by now you understand why I have stayed undetected until this letter…
    While gathering information about you, I have discovered that you are a big fan of adult websites.
    You really love visiting porn websites and watching exciting videos, while enduring an enormous amount of pleasure.
    Well, I have managed to record a number of your dirty scenes and montaged a few videos, which show the way you masturbate and reach orgasms.
    If you have doubts, I can make a few clicks of my mouse and all your videos will be shared to your friends, colleagues and relatives.
    I have also no issue at all to make them available for public access.
    I guess, you really don’t want that to happen, considering the specificity of the videos you like to watch, (you perfectly know what I mean) it will cause a true catastrophe for you.
    Let’s settle it this way:
    You transfer $400 USD to me (in bitcoin equivalent according to the exchange rate at the moment of funds transfer), and once the transfer is received, I will delete all this dirty stuff right away.
    After that we will forget about each other. I also promise to deactivate and delete all the harmful software from your devices. Trust me, I keep my word.
    This is a fair deal and the price is quite low, considering that I have been checking out your profile and traffic for some time by now.
    In case, if you don’t know how to purchase and transfer the bitcoins – you can use any modern search engine.
    Here is my bitcoin wallet: bc1qnf0zk6skv92vyeqlaq2x0gzmtvpgvzr8xntd2p
    Things you need to avoid from doing:
    *Do not reply me (I have created this email inside your inbox and generated the return address).
    *Do not try to contact police and other security services. In addition, forget about telling this to you friends. If I discover that (as you can see, it is really not so hard, considering that I control all your systems) – your video will be shared to public right away.
    *Don’t try to find me – it is absolutely pointless. All the cryptocurrency transactions are anonymous.
    *Don’t try to reinstall the OS on your devices or throw them away. It is pointless as well, since all the videos have already been saved at remote servers.
    Things you don’t need to worry about:
    *That I won’t be able to receive your funds transfer.
    – Don’t worry, I will see it right away, once you complete the transfer, since I continuously track all your activities (my trojan virus has got a remote-control feature, something like TeamViewer).
    *That I will share your videos anyway after you complete the funds transfer.
    – Trust me, I have no point to continue creating troubles in your life. If I really wanted that, I would do it long time ago!
    Everything will be done in a fair manner!
    One more thing… Don’t get caught in similar kind of situations anymore in future!
    My advice – keep changing all your passwords on a frequent basis

    Que dois je faire, de plus je ne parle pas l’anglais.
    Merci pour votre aide
    Cordialement
    Hervé
