Scammers are taking advantage of a recently posted list of usernames and passwords from hacked websites in an attempt to extort money from the victims of the hack.

The scam email sends you your password from the hacked site with a message that claims that the scammer has taken control over your computer and has recorded sensitive videos that will be shared with all of your contacts if you do not meet their demands.

If you receive an email like this, simply delete it and do not respond.  If the password sent to you matches any current passwords for any accounts, immediately change that password.
