I got a few emails lately which contained an unsecure password I once used somewhere – and that site was hacked, and millions of user accounts and passwords were compromised, such as mine. Sites such as TechCrunch reported about that breach.
The threat is the following: they claim I was using some delicate (meaning porn) sites, and while doing so, they – in possession of my password – could hack into *my* system and turn on the webcam, filming me while whatever I would have been doing while consuming that ‘delicate’ stuff.
Problem is, I don’t have a webcam…
Nice try, guys, but sorry – no bitcoins from me. Go f**k yourselves.
What an interesting article, comparing several camera/lens combinations, a small compact, and a smartphone, all for under $1k, with the $5.5k combination of a Nikon D850 and a 105mm/1.4 lens for portraits and background blur. Recommended reading if you want to take photos of people.
