Have I been hacked?

Episode 1531 (1:09:44)

Jay from Tuscon, AZ

Jay gets an email of a scam that says it has his login information and knows where he's been online. It even tells him his password. And unless he gives them $800 in Bitcoin, they'll expose him. Leo says it's called ransomware. Leo says it's probably from a data breach.

Jay should check out HaveIBeenPwned.com. He should also read this article from Krebs On Security. It's bogus, and he can ignore it.
