The Intego Mac Podcast episode 43 is now available!

How would you react to an email from someone claiming to have hacked your webcam and recorded your most private moments? What if they threatened you with blackmail unless you payed a ransom? And what does it mean if the email includes a real password that you've used in the past? Should you be worried?

Intego has received an eyebrow raising number of calls lately from people who received blackmail emails, which claim they were filmed while watching porn. Hosts Kirk and Josh explain how this scam work and how you can protect yourself should such an email land in your inbox or junk box. They also talk about the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit apps, Firefox's new DNS scheme, and much more.
