Sextortion scam uses recipients' hacked passwords

https://krebsonsecurity.com/2018/07/sextortion-scam-uses-recipients-hacked-passwords/

I recently received one of these emails and ignored it. I’ve been using a password manager for years and the password included in the email is one that I definitely don’t use any more, so I just ignored it. I can see how this could certainly scare those who aren’t tech-savvy, but ironically, any compliant victims have to be knowledgeable to some extent in order to make a bitcoin payment within 24 hours!? :thinking:
