We would like to advise you that we have recently seen a number of email threats being sent around claiming to have stolen your password.
The scam email claims to have a previous password that you may have used at some point. The sender says that they have used that password to hack into your computer, install malware and record a video of you through your webcam.
They then threaten to release these videos to your contacts, and advise that the only way to prevent these videos being released is to pay them a nominal fee.
In light of this, we would like to advise that you do not open the email and ensure that it is deleted immediately. If the scammer has correctly identified your password then ensure that you change all your passwords.
If you think you may have been effected by this scam or any other scam please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can provide a health-check on your machine and network.
