Question: I got a sextortion email with my password in the subject line. I'm worried, should I respond? How did they get my password?

- John W, via email

Answer: Don't respond - this is a common scam. They've made up something about some viewing session they claim you had and then posted a password you recognise to dazzle you and make you believe it must be true.
