Doesn’t this sound terrifying? Imagine if one of your REAL passwords are in the subject or the content of a threatening email sent to you, just like that?
What do you do? Panic? Pay?
Well, the truth is that those emails got their “information” from security breaches that affected BILLIONS of user accounts in many different services all over the world so…
Don’t panic or pay!
Trust me, it happened to me, but there was a “but…” that made it very clear they did not have as much information as they were arguing in their badly written email: They could not count on the fact that I hate porn (nothing against it, I just feel nauseated by it, sorry), so I knew that whoever was behind the threat was just shooting bullets in the dark based on the “average person”.
