I received an email today. The author threatened to expose my love of streaming porn sites along with web cam footage of my drooling unless I gave them xxx amount of bitcoin. An empty and laughable threat since, hell, I don't even have a web cam, but whatever. What piqued my interest is the password they said they had obtained. It was the one I used to access my EA account and one that was hacked a couple years ago, by, I believe a person from Russia since the answer to a challenge question for my account was changed to Cyrillic. I never used the account much, since I don't play many EA games, but two years ago, I bought ME:A ( yuck , serves me right ) and I never bothered to implement 2 factor like I did for Steam. Now, thankfully, I was able to get my account back after calling EA and I was never foolish enough to tie a credit card to the account. I read shortly after my experience that a lot of EA accounts were affected by a hack.
Which is why I'm posting here. Was anybody affected by this hack and have you received an email like I described?
