Email about NIS account being “Hacked”

Good Morning,

If you have received an email starting like this:


My nickname in darknet is hermie59 {or some version of this}.
I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

So, your password from {yourusernamehere} is pac123456

Don’t panic. Contact us in the IT Department, and rest easy knowing that this is the latest in a string of increasingly high-tech phishing scams designed to get you to panic and not pay attention to some of the details that otherwise highlight that this is fake. For more information on this latest scam, have a look at this article from the UK Business Insider journal. Remember, when in doubt about something like┬áthis, come and ask the experts in IT (and change your password!). Remember, protect yourself when you connect yourself to the world wide web!
