Our experiences online today seem, at times, much like life was probably like in the Wild West about 145 years ago. Today, online thieves are out to get as much from you as possible. And when you connect to the Internet, you’re vulnerable to malware and hackers — it simply does not matter what computer or operating system you’re using.

The latest trick up cybercriminal’s sleeves is a ploy utilizing a mix of social engineering and blackmail, a scam via email from someone claiming to have hacked your computer’s webcam and recorded your activities while you allegedly watched porn. The email claims you downloaded their virus while watching porn, siphoning your contacts, and they threaten to send the video of you to all of your friends, family and coworkers — unless you pay a ransom in Bitcoin (BTC) digital currency. (We’ve seen demands of anywhere between $300 to $3,000 USD or higher.)
