NCSC is warning about swindle blackmail messages

National Cyber Security Centre of Finnish Transport and Communications Agency is warning about the swindle blackmail messages.

Blackmail messages also have come during the past few days to the e-mail of the university. It is a swindle message which is not worth taking seriously and particularly the required ransoms should not be paid.

It’s common for the swindlers to create a feel of shame and hurry and they also claim that they have an access to one’s computer. Plenty of messages have been sent with the similar theme also during earlier years.

More information in Finnish about this so-called porn blackmail at the page of NCSC.
