Norton Spam?

Hello, I just received the following e-mail this morning and would like to know what I can do or if anyone has any advice:


I infected you with my private malware, RAT, (Remote Administration Tool) some time ago.

The malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, even turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it.

I made a video showing both you (through your webcam) and the video you were watching (on the screen) while statisfying yourself!

I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network)!

I can publish absolutly everything I found on your computer!

You can prevent me from doing this!

To stop me, transfer exactly $ 700 with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
If you don't know how to get bitcoin, Google - How to buy Bitcoin.
The wallet you can create here: www . login . blockchain  . com /en /#/ signup /
Or google coincorner or coinbase to buy BTC(bitcoin)
My bitcoin adress is: 13 NQ6 VfaEx 2w9Ae FV7X giq7R8 MxmDB bni T

Copy and paste my adress, it's (cAsE-sensetive)

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video, and we will forget everything.
I give you 4 days to get the bitcoins.
Since I already have access to your computer, I know when you read this email.
Don't share this email with anyone, this should stay our little secret!

Thank you for any help.

Re: Norton Spam?

This is a scammer trying his/her luck.
It’s a typical scam email - even I have received this & I know I’m clean as I practice safe hex.

Simply just ignore it.
If you are worried then scan with these tools:
MBAM free: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/
Eset online scanner:  http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/
Adwcleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

If these find one or more infections but do not fully remove them it will be wise to register with a malware removal site to receive dedicated malware removal instructions, an expert will remain with you throughout the process until confirmation that your PC is 100% clean.
