Cyber criminals are attempting to blackmail unsuspecting victims!

Cyber criminals send victims their own passwords in extortion scam – Cyber criminals are attempting to blackmail unsuspecting victims by claiming to have used the victims’ password to install spying malware on the victims’ computer. The criminals claim they’ve recorded videos of the victim watching adult material by activating their webcam when they visit these websites. What makes this scam so convincing is that the email usually includes a genuine password the victim has used for one of their online accounts. We believe criminals obtain the passwords from data breaches.


What to do if you get one of these emails?
Don’t reply to the email, or be pressured into paying. The police advise that you do not pay criminals. Try flagging the email as spam/junk if you receive it multiple times. Perform a password reset as soon as possible on any accounts where you’ve used the password mentioned in the email. Always use a strong, separate password for important accounts, such as your email. Where available, enable two-factor authentication (2FA). Always install the latest software and app updates. Install, or enable, anti-virus software on your laptops and computers and keep it updated.

If you receive one of these emails, report it to Action Fraud’s phishing reporting tool. If you have received one of these emails and paid the ransom, report it to your local police force.

A Virtual Reconstruction of Slingsby Castle?

Tuesday 20th November 7.30pm Village Hall Committee Room ( £1 )

Bethany Watrous is an MA Buildings Archaeology student at the University, working with Kate on creating a virtual reconstruction of Slingsby Castle, as it was originally envisaged and designed by the architect Robert Smythson for Charles Cavendish (I), based on analysis of the original drawings held by RIBA and other sites such as Caverswall Castle (Staffordshire) and the actual castle, built by John Smithson for Charles Cavendish (II).

Beth will show us the castle in its landscape context, and reappraise its relationship to High Street and the medieval – and current – village layout and its commanding view across what is now the Sports Field and the Lawns.

We will hope to give a brief update, too, about the geophysical survey carried out by Dr Helen Goodchild of the University of York and Slingsby School in October.
