Default CRPA Web Site May Have Been Compromised

CRPA Web Site May Have Been Compromised

The password that was where the underline is was the same password I used on the CRPA Web Site.

So I receive an email from appears my email address to my email address stating this.
Hello!

I'm a hacker who cracked your email and device a few months ago.
You entered a password on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted it.
This is your password from ___________________________________

Of course you can will change it, or already changed it.
But it doesn't matter, my malware updated it every time.

Do not try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your account.

Through your email, 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 Trojan on your device and long tome spying for you.

You are not my only victim, I usually lock computers and ask for a ransom.
But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you often visit.

I am in shock of your fantasies! I've never seen anything like this!

So, when you had fun on piquant sites (you know what I mean!)
I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device.
After that, I combined them to the content of the currently viewed site.

There will be laughter when I send these photos to your contacts!
BUT I'm sure you don't want it.

Therefore, I expect payment from you for my silence.
I think $866 is an acceptable price for it!

Pay via Bitcoin.
My BTC wallet: 1GcwYRfWesiSe2fBmsVSpNG2K11zDMhksG

If you do not know how to do this - enter into Google "how to transfer money to a bitcoin wallet". It is not difficult.
After receiving the specified amount, all your data will be immediately destroyed automatically. My virus will also remove itself from your operating system.

My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is read, I will be know it!

I give you 2 days (48 hours) to make a payment.
If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots from your dark secret life!
And so that you do not obstruct, your device will be blocked (also after 48 hours)

Is that the only place you used that password?

Note: I get one or two emails every day that get auto-spam tagged for the same ransom emails for a password I used back in 1998.

Do you keep a list of your passwords on your computer?

I received one of these 'threats' to the automated advertising email a few weeks ago claiming to have downloaded 'lewd videos' from that email address's hard drive.
It's a virtual mailbox on the server so I have serious doubts about this claim...

Do a web search for the line from the email 'I'm a hacker who cracked your email and device a few months ago.
You entered a password on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted it.'

You'll find out all about this scam.

Just delete the email and forget about it, it's a hoax.

Thanks Kestryll

So I checked my master password list at home and it was an old password that was linked to CRPA Web Store years ago.

My master password list is not on the PC but locked in the safe with other important docs.

Thanks Again.
