This morning many people were waking up to emails they received warning them to pay up or else. What makes these emails believable is that the subject is the users name and their email password!
The email goes something like this:
If you received this email here are a few things you should do:
Do not respond to this email
Change your password if it is correct (It is likely that the sender got this password from a leak on the dark web)
Monitor the dark web for any password leaks
Check your computer for RDP and Firewall for what ports are open to the outside world
Make sure you are running an Advanced Anti-Virus that can block zero-day threats as well as key loggers and other malicious software.
