Hi. I'm Richard and have been using Webroot for about a year on my Mac and a PC. Have a question. Several wks ago received an email to me, from me basically saying (loose paraphrase) "Hi. I am the hacker who hacked your email. Have installed all kind of virus, malware, worms, etc. Pay me $900 in bit coins within 48 hrs" Normally my knee jerk response to phishing emails is to hit the delete button but this one included a password (hadn't used it for a yr or more) so it made me nervous. Ran Webroot, a malware prog and had a deep scan done to boot. Found nothing. Changed what seemed like 10 million passwords. Still a little parinoid due to the old password contained in the original email. Anyone run ito this type of email before and if yes did it cause any problems.
