Hacked by group called ChaosCC?

Post by MezB » Tue Aug 27, 2019 5:50 pm

So just received an email from a mob called ChaosCC saying that if I don’t deposit $700 in 60 hours they will send all my email contacts footage of me accessing websites and the iPhone camera automatically turns on and records you and it it then saved. Is this legit??

I also got an email from them today. They state that they got my email address by hacking one of the exetel.com.au mail servers.
I haven't had spam mail for a few years on my Exemail addresses but over the past month I have started to get a few. The majority show as coming from my address but I can see via email details that they have a 2nd ip listed. I've checked them at AbuseIPDB and they have come from India, China, Argentina etc.. This one today came from telecom.com.ar. I've blocked telecom.com.ar in my email client...Patricia

I did a google search and it appears it is a scam but scary though and I suspect some people would transfer money to these people.

I have had 2 similar emails demanding I pay in bitcoin or they will release videos of me accessing porn sites which told me immediately it was BS. They actually had my details & a password that I used on a website which was hacked over 12 months ago so my email address & password was posted elsewhere for scammers to use.
I just ignored them & changed all my passwords, I flagged them as spam & they go straight into the bin now.

Please continue to flag them as spam for any new emails. For further investigations, I have reported with our system administrators.
