NEWS: Sheriff: Don't become victims of these scams

January 28, 2013

The Hutchinson County Sheriff's Office wants to make local citizens aware of two different scams that could affect them in more ways than one.
Sheriff Don Johnson said one of these scams is an extortion technique being used by cyber criminals using the Citadel malware platform to deliver Reveton ransomware. The latest version of this ransomware uses the name of the Internet Crime Complaint Center as a means to frighten potential victims.
In addition to scaring people about possible prosecution, the malware also claims a user's computer activity is being recorded with the use of audio, video, and other devices.
