    I bet a lot of people get those messages who don't even have a webcam haha. Has anyone ever been burned by these 'threats' before (I.e. compromising things sent to contacts list)? I've never heard of one personally.
    Happened to a friend of my fathers on instagram lol. Buddy made an account with his name, added all his contacts and posted a video of him watching a pr0n video

    Nobody getting this particular campaign is at risk of that.

    But yes, that does happen also.

    Wow, rough

    Was it out of spite, or part of an extortion?

    Did not expect anyone to have an example haha wow. I've got to believe that is pretty rare though. Also a good reminder for people to cover their webcam if they have one...

    Looks like my info got stolen at some point.... not sure which one, it was a password I haven't used in a very long time. Maybe NCIX?
    Rage2 got this pretty much right after the NCIX incident too if I recall.

    Bump. Just got an email almost identical to OP's. P/W is one I only use for Beyond, and isn't the same as the email address the "hacker" claims it is.

    if your password was simple enough that a dictionary attack could have decrypted it? Also, was this password older than June 10th 2017?

    If anyone else has unique passwords lifted from this site, don't hesitate to contact me directly. The more evidence I can gather, the more I can pinpoint when the data was exposed.
    Yes, it's a simple password in my case, and the last time I changed it was either on, or prior to 13-June-17 (that's the last date it was changed on the computer I'm currently on, but I probably changed it a few days prior on my phone and/or tablet)
