How horrible. Amongst other issues at stake here, it's a reminder that all computer users definitely need to ramp up security - in addition to changing passwords regularly, everyone needs to explore other ways and products that can help boost security.

re: FBI Busts Alleged Skype 'Sextortionist'
This sound like a whole new form of terror and crime that is a result of social media and being able to exploit people through their image. I understand with technology comes a whole slue of threats and attacks just waiting to be launched, but this is ridiculous, that a man with a previous rape record is able to conduct this sort of behavior and go unnoticed for so long and effect so many people. Clearly he did not care about getting caught or was to stupid to cover his tracks, either way glad this guy will be doing some pretty painful time.
