A New Blackmail Scam “!!!Attantion WannaCry-Team!!!”

Office Macro Malware

Following on from the porn themed blackmail scam documented https://nftsgary.com/attempted-blackmail-scam-watching-porn/ we are now seeing another blackmail scam attempt.

This time it pretends to alert about a new Wannacry outbreak that has infected your computer, saying you have been hacked by them and all your computer will be encrypted or deleted unless you pay them a large sum of money in bitcoins within 24 hours. They are currently asking for 0.1 bitcoin $650 but in the porn themed version that amount varied between $200 to about $800.

This of course is a total scam and you should just delete the email, move on & forget all about it.
The subject so far, in copies that I have seen says “!!!Attantion WannaCry-Team!!!” and comes from “WannaCry-Hack-team ” the actual sending addresses vary with each email, but there appear to be hundreds so far today. No doubt as the day progresses and the weeks go past, the subjects will change slightly in the same way they did with the porn themed blackmail versions.

Body content is similar to these 2 examples. There will be hundreds of different Bitcoin addresses in the emails. These are sent to a multiple list of recipients, so the email you receive will probably have several other email addresses listed in the to: box. Please just delete the email. Do not reply to the scammers and definitely do not press reply all or this will perpetuate the scam.
