Sextortion Scam Uses Recipient’s Hacked Passwords — Krebs on Security

Don’t trust inbound e-mails, phone calls, texts, etc.  People will say anything to trick you out of your money.  As a rule, change your passwords often.  Protect your passwords.  Don’t share them with anyone and don’t use the same ones on different accounts.  Keep your AV up to date.  We recommend WebRoot (ask us about it).  Cover your camera when not in use as a rule of thumb too.
