Online Extortion Scams Threaten Users with Blackmail Video

It has been reported that an online scam that is recently being spread is threatening its victims with blackmail via email.

Recipients of the email are reportedly being extorted thousands of dollars by criminals who say that they have recorded embarrassing videos of the user who visited their adult website. However, it was noted that the videos being mentioned were not real, but the passwords and credentials were likely obtained from data breaches.

Security experts advise users to pay no attention to the email, and instead just change their passwords.
