I DID get an eMail saying that at 1:15 p.m., today, my data would be corrupted if I didn't pay $980 in bitcoins to an address they sent. There was also an eMail address.

Part of me is almost sure it's a tasteless hoax, as I've been getting a lot of crap in eMail (aside from the usual junk mail, I also found I've been impersonated by some joes using my name & avatar to give others a hard time ,resulting in me getting blocked by said targets. I found one of these messages and explained to the target that I don't know what it means because I did not write the message. )

I also do not have the kind of data these ransomware attacks target, as far as I know. If printer material is meant, well, I can reinstall the word processor and I haven't used the printer or the word processor in a good long time.

I have been preparing to restart using a new username and password and rebuilding from a list of addresses (some websites are now obsolete to me.). My old entry data is passe anyhow.

I have NO desire to spend the kind of money demanded, esp. if it's just a hoax to rattle me. Part of me is sure it is...but the rest of me is preparing to rebuild.

Reminds me of the recent WannaCry ransomware. Did you take inspiration from it?
