Default New Sextortion Scam Pretends to Come from Your Hacked Email Account

This report is from Bleeping Computer:

New Sextortion Scam Pretends to Come from Your Hacked Email Account
Quote:
Sextortion scams are when an attacker sends emails to people stating that their computer is hacked and that the attackers have been recording the screen*and webcam*as the user visits adult sites. The scammers then blackmail the recipients by stating they will release the videos if they do not receive a payment in bitcoins.
