Sometimes you find really funny stuff in your junkmail folder…
We are the Team Xball and we have chosen your website/network as target for our next DDoS attack.
Unfortunately your data was leaked in the recent hacking of the web site and we now have your information.
We have DataBase tax forms, DOB, Names, Addresses, Credit card details, bank account full details and more sensitive data.
Now, we can publish your details and your clients online who would damage the rating of the company
and would create many problems for you.
On Friday 16_06_2017_7:00p.m. GMT !!! We begin to attack your network servers and computers
We will produce a powerful DDoS attack – up to 250 Gbps
All data will be encrypted on computers Crypto-Ransomware
You can stop the attack beginning, if payment 1 bitcoin (2900 $).
Do you have time to pay. If you do not pay before the attack 1 bitcoin the price will increase to 10 bitcoins
Please send the bitcoin to the following Bitcoin address:
Once you have paid we will automatically get informed that it was your payment.
What if I don’t pay?
If you decide not to pay, we will start the attack at the indicated date and uphold it until you do, there’s no counter measure to this, you will only end up wasting more money trying to find a solution. We will completely destroy your reputation amongst google and your customers and make sure your website will remain offline until you pay. We can publish your DataBase.
This is not a hoax, do not reply to this email, don’t try to reason or negotiate, we will not read any replies. Once you have paid we won’t start the attack and you will never hear from us again!
Please note that Bitcoin is anonymous and no one will find out that you have complied.
The noteworthy thing: this went to a burner address I used years ago. So I’m not particularly worried about team goofball following up on their threat (or even being capable of operating anything more complicated than their junkmail script for that matter).
