Password Sextortion Email Scam


This week I received an email with one of my passwords in the subject line. The sender claimed to have installed malware on my computer and recorded me watching porn. He proceeded by saying he had pulled all of my contacts and would send them the video if I didn't pay $993 in bitcoin. 

Over the last few months, this scam has attacked people from all around the world. Sextortion scams like these have been around for quite a while, but have never been as successful as the latest rounds. That's because they have your password now, which immediately gets your attention.

The sender hopes you're so panicked while reading the email that you forget one important fact--our data is everywhere. Yes, it's possible that your computer has malware installed that can steal your passwords and even take over your webcam. But that's also very rare. What's more common is finding your information on the wonderful internet.

With Marriott's recent data breach, it's a reminder that almost all of our data will eventually be available to anyone wanting to find it. These data breaches fuel the rise of foolery like this sextortion email. 

Obviously, I didn't pay the $993 dollars. I did however update my passwords and run a few scans on my computer just in case. Make sure that you're taking the necessary steps to stay protected this holiday and whatever you do, put tape over your webcam. :)

How to Definitely Not be Comfortable
By Cooper
 

Step 1: Get your balls chopped off and have to wear a cone on your head for two weeks and take medicine that makes you sleepy and not go to the park and play with your pals.

This song transports me to a universe where everything is cool and easy. In this universe, people always laugh at my jokes and I never spill coffee on my shirt. I don't walk when I listen to this song, I glide. Turn this smooth track on while you cook dinner tonight and I guarantee it will be the best damn meal you ever cook. Enjoy.
