It's malware called Varenyky, which monitors the activity of infected computers and waits for the victim to visit a porn site to begin screen capture at that point.

The new malware program first appeared in France in May and so far has targeted only users in that country. It primarily targets Orange users who send malicious Microsoft Word files to run malware.

When the infected file is opened, it is first checked that the victim is from the territory of France, and if not, the program is downloaded without causing an aunt. Forbes,

But if you fall victim to the target area, malware is installed on your computer. He then retrieves passwords and screenshots each time the victim visits a porn site.

Spam emails containing this malware are similar to last year's lotteries in which the recipient is promised an iPhone X, Galaxy S9 or S10 prize and is required to receive online information, including bank account information, PC Press,
