    If you have received an email with the subject line "Your password" followed by a password that you used in the past or are still using, you may wonder whether the allegations made in the email are true and whether you should pay the sender money.

    The email claims that the sender set up malware on adult video sites that you visited to gain access to the computer, screen and webcam. The cam was used to record a video of your activities while being on the adult video site, and other software was used to obtain lists of contacts from Facebook, email and other places.

    The sender asks for a sum in Bitcoin and wants it sent to an address within one day. Failure to comply to the demand will lead to the publication of the video and the informing of all contacts about it.
