The attackers have earned more than 50 thousand dollars, blackmailing people mail threats to publish a pornorolikov with their participation. This was stated by the experts in the field of cyber security from the company SecGuru on Twitter.

In mid-July it became known that fraudsters would use the database with the leaked user passwords, and began sending letters threatening to publish intimate videos allegedly recorded on a webcam. To avoid this, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of 1.9 thousands of dollars in bitcoins. Later, however, the size of the Board increased by almost two times.

Experts decided to monitor cryptocell addresses used by the scammers. After studying 42 addresses experts have found that at least 30 victims have already sent the attackers a total of more than 50 thousand dollars.
