Hi all Just in case you needed another motivation to quit porn: It seems like the Black Mirror episode shut up and dance has finally given the "mainstream" hackers some ideas. They've started to send emails to people blackmailing them to give them money or else they will release footage of you and the porn you watch on all social media platforms. I've received such an email myself a week ago. Now I knew the guy was bluffing because first of all he wasn't specific in the content I watch and also he wrote he has footage of me "pleasuring myself while watching porn" which I don't do anymore since last January and there's no reason why he should wait that long to blackmail me. However not all of them are bluffing, there are lots of new strains of trojan horses circling the web and they do have the ability to hack your cam (without the light going on) and record your screen. Regardless, if you get a threat like that, legitimate or not, do not respond! And most important of all do not give them any money! You have zero guarantees that they will not release the footage anyway even after you paid them and they can keep draining you as long as you fall for it. If you have a solid reason to believe that this person actually has footage of you, go to the police immediately. You're being blackmailed and are in the full right, no matter how embarrassing it is. As long as you stayed clear off child pornography (which is what the Black Mirror episode is about btw) you didn't do any legal wrong. Anyway, I only see this becoming worse to be honest, so I think it's another great motivator to quit this electronic crack.
