Emma LaRue of Hightechtopics is a spammer

Received the following from Em.  Complete with legit looking “unsubscribe” links and a cool “Certified Email” seal at the bottom as well.  You don’t fool me Ems, I know I never signed up with your marketing email spam.  I suspect you bought my email address from an unscrupulous person.

Update 10/2016: natalie-davy@hitechtopics.com is now being used for spamming as well

Hi ,

How are you? I hope you are well.

I have the following whitepaper which I think may be of interest to you Ransomware for Beginners

Our report this quarter opens with a discussion of ransomware. The media tends to cover data breaches more often than ransomware incidents, but ransomware presents a growing threat. The FBI estimates that just one ransomware threat, CryptoWall, has so far netted its operators about USD18 million.

Even law enforcement organizations have fallen victim. As the sophistication of the threats and attackers grows, so does the targeting of their operations, to the extent that some attackers specialize in ransoming the local data files of popular online games.

The evolution of these threats follows a pattern we have seen before, becoming more available to more attackers.

    I hope you are well. I have a report from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that I would like to email to you as a PDF if that is ok with you.
    There is an exclusive Aberdeen report on machine learning that we are sending out and this report explores the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the enterprise and the potential impact of AI-related technologies. The benefits of this report shows examples of how companies are embedding Machine learning/AI into their processes. It also shows three recommendations and takeaways for approaching enterprise AI.
    Is it ok to send this to you?
    Best regards,
    Christine
