CERT-In issues advisory, warning of email extortion campaign in India

Apr 30, 2020 20:12 IST

A warning has been issued by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, alerting the public to a new email extortion campaign that Internet scammers are using to trick victims into sending them money. The scammers reportedly convince innocent victims that their system has been hacked, often demanding payment in Bitcoin to let victims regain access to sensitive data. A copy of what a scammers email could potentially look like has been posted on the CERT-In website.
