Sextortion – what’s new, and what to do [VIDEO]

Sx-1200

Sextortion is where crooks email you out of the blue, say they have sex-related pictures or webcam footage of you, and demand you to pay them thousands of dollars, OR ELSE.

Even people who never watch porn and don’t have a webcam find this sort of scam confronting and scary…

…so we made a Naked Security Live video you can share with your less tech-savvy friends and family to set their minds at rest.

Watch now for answers in plain English to:

Is webcam malware technically feasible? Is there anything at all behind these threats? Is it a worry if the crooks know my password or other personal information? Is there still a risk if I don’t watch porn? Is it worth reporting these emails to my ISP? What to do next?

(Watch directly on YouTube if the video won’t play here.)
