05-02 22:04 - 'Scam Bitcoin Emails' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/woomybii removed from /r/Bitcoin within 152-162min
''' So recently i received an email from Nisa Jarnagin (email was outlook), titled "bob111" claiming that was my password, saying she recorded me while I was on a porn site from my computer (my camera is covered) and if I don't send 300 BTC she will send it to random people in my phone contacts list and FB friends list (my fb is empty and I don't have friends on it). She says I have 24 hours to pay in BTC or she will send the video to my contacts and if I want proof I need to reply to the email with the word "proof". She gave me an address to send the BTC to and it was just a jumble of letters and numbers. this is obviously not real, right? I just wanted to say this may be going around and to be very careful of these emails. It wasn't riddled with spelling errors, it was very well worded for an email like this honestly. It did alarm me a little bit because weirdly enough last night I did visit a NSFW site but not for very long, and it was on my phone where my camera isn't covered. But she was insistent it was on my computer. Is there somewhere I can report it or should I just delete it and move on?

Small Business Just Hacked. [email protected] encryption asking for Ransom Bitcoin. Need Advice.
As a primer, longtime lurker but complete novice when it comes to hacking so thanks for your patience. A few hours ago one of our employee's computers had a ransom note pop up on it and many of our network files started getting encrypted. The computer also had a window on it that looked similar to a command prompt that showed time updates (see image) and the amount of files encrypted every 5 minutes. The hacker demanded bitcoin be sent to the email [email protected] and left a .txt file in every folder that read: All your important files are encrypted!

Earlier today I opened up Remote Desktop from Windows Pro on her computer and configured port forwarding to her computer's IP. I also went into Windows Firewall on her computer and enabled all of the 'Remote Desktop' applications to bypass Firewall so the Remote Desktop would work properly. The employee whose computer was hacked was not working on her computer for about 5 hours leading up to the hack. I guess my questions are:
How can we track where this came from?
Given she was not at her computer when this all happened, is this virus on a timer?
How can we find out if other computers on our network are infect and will be on a timer as well?
I am having a hard time believing that me opening up the computer to Remote Desktop is not somehow associated with the hack, but our IT admin insists it's not related. Could this have been the cause?
