I received this email today.  It did concern me quite a bit.  The password that is mentioned is one that I have not used in nearly 20 years.  The body of the email is below and the Hijack this log is below that.  Would like to know what threat this really is. thanks.

 

******************** EMail **********************

 

I won't beat around the bush. I know jeannie is your pass word. More to the point, I do know about your secret and I've proof of this. You don't know me personally and nobody paid me to examine you.
 
It is just your bad luck that I found your blunder. In fact, I setup a malware on the adult vids (porno) and you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your browser initiated functioning as a Rdp (Remote desktop) having a keylogger which gave me accessibility to your screen as well as cam. Just after that, my software collected your entire contacts from your messenger, fb, as well as e-mail.
 
After that I gave in much more time than I should have investigating into your life and generated a double display video. First part shows the recording you had been viewing and other part shows the view from your cam (its you doing dirty things).
 
Frankly, I want to forget all information about you and allow you to move on with your daily life. And I am about to present you two options which will make it happen. Those two choices are to either ignore this letter, or simply pay me $ 2200. Let’s understand these 2 options in more detail.
 
First Option is to ignore this message. Let's see what is going to happen if you take this path. I definitely will send your video to your contacts including family members, colleagues, and so forth. It doesn't save you from the humiliation you and your family will feel when friends and family discover your unpleasant details from me.
 
Second Option is to make the payment of $ 2200. We will call it my “privacy charges”. Now let me tell you what will happen if you opt this choice. Your secret will remain your secret. I'll erase the recording immediately. You keep your daily life like nothing like this ever occurred.
 
At this point you must be thinking, “I should go to the cops”. Without a doubt, I've taken steps to ensure this e mail can't be linked back to me and it will not stay away from the evidence from destroying your health. I am not planning to break your bank. I just want to be compensated for my time I put in investigating you. Let's hope you decide to make this all disappear and pay me the confidentiality fee. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoins" on google search)
 
Amount to be paid: $ 2200
Send To This Bitcoin Address: 194B2H4ozHB*p5cXboT7k8waWsr3Ws2Q7AK ( You need to Remove * from this address then note it carefully)
 
Tell no-one what you should use the bitcoin for or they possibly will not give it to you. The task to acquire bitcoin usually takes a short time so do not procrastinate.
I've a unique pixel in this email message, and right now I know that you have read through this email message. You have 24 hours to make the payment. If I do not receive the Bitcoins, I will send your video to your contacts including members of your family, co-workers, and so forth. You better come up with an excuse for friends and family before they find out. Nevertheless, if I receive the payment, I will erase the video and all other proofs immediately. It's a non negotiable one time offer, thus don't waste my personal time & yours. The clock is ticking. You should know that my software will still be tracking the actions you take after you're done reading this email. Honestly, If I see any bad activity from your web history I will send out your videotape to your family members, colleagues before your time ends.

This is a currently active scam, and it has been much discussed here and elsewhere.

 

I strongly suggest you do a little web research to put your mind at ease:   https://duckduckgo.com/?q=porn+and+password+email+scam

Sorry, I didn't do any research, just panicked a bit and started running all my malware and antivirus programs.  All that was good and came here.  Thank you for directing me in the right direction.  I did search this forum, but didn't find anything. I guess I need to improve my search techniques for here.

Part of the problem is that this particular scam has been identified in various ways.  Our site owner wrote the following article (not forum post):

 

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/adult-site-blackmail-spammers-made-over-50k-in-one-week/

 

and I am certain that there were a couple of forum posts on this as well.  It's just been "everywhere" in the tech press over the past several weeks and is, in fact, starting to die down now, so I've seen it so many times I can't keep straight all the places where I've seen it.
