January and February are always busy months for me with long days and short nights. I barely get time to have a private life so when I check emails I don’t want to deal with a load of crap.
Recently I’ve been inundated with emails telling me I’ve been hacked and they have video of me wanking off to porn taken from my web cam. I must pay them bitcoin to stop them emailing everyone in my address book.
The first time I recieved this it really scared the crap out of me. I actually thought I’d been hacked. Then I thought if anyone had actually hacked my webcam all they could video is me looking blankly at the screen while surfing the BBC News website or the occasional forum; certainly no wanking or anything lewd at all.
Once I realised it was all complete bollocks I felt fucking annoyed.
One good thing did come out of it though. I have stepped up my cyber security and am using unique and complex passwords, I’ve even looked into ramping security on the website.
