It appears that the FitnessPal (or other UnderArmour) website has been hacked.

I have received multiple emails demanding bitcoin payments, because the sender has videos of me "mastrubating" (note the spelling), and as "proof," they show a password that I use.

The only website where I use that password is the FitnessPal website.

If you have a login password for any of the UnderArmour websites, you might want to change the password, lest you be caught on camera mastrubating.



A mind is a terrible thing.

They were hacked in March 2018 . Did you change your password after that or is this a new hacking?

I would contact the site in question and let them know it appears they may have been compromised.

But before you do that, are you certain it's not your computer or device that's been compromised? Or is it possible your password is easily-guessable?

FWIW: I've received a number of such demands. They claimed to have obtained the video from the camera on my computer.

My computer has no camera.

I don't recall any passwords being noted in the emails I've received.

The ones I've gotten have the stolen password in the subject line! Wink

I did not know that. I rarely log on to that website. No harm really, as I do use a different password for every website, and there is no information that is really useful to anyone else on the FitnessPal site, unless somebody wants to know what I had for breakfast.

I do like the idea of a preemptive strike, though.

I received an email like that last week. The email said they found the videos of me pleasuring myself on my Facebook account. Pretty weird as I have no Facebook account.

Tell them that your webcam is low quality, but you now have a better one, and offer to send them a newer, better video!

Apparently my password was gleaned from Linkedin.

Yeah, they are going to ruin my reputation by sending those purported videos to all in my contact lists.

Like that's going to shock anybody........!

I've had a few of those emails recently, including one to my .gov email account.

My counter-offer is always the same: Instead of Bitcoin (of which I have none) would they accept $1.33 in unused Amazon gift card credit and four photographs of sweaty balls? I'm willing to negotiate if they don't want the Amazon credit, but am absolutely inflexible on them accepting pictures of sweaty balls. They never respond, for some reason.

Well, of course I can't be certain that it's not my computer that has been compromised, but I keep all passwords in a password manager (1Password) with a complex and meaningless master password.

I use a different password for each site or app, no password is used for more than one thing, no password is a "word," they are all complex and meaningless character strings.

I have received multiple spam-mails demanding bitcoin as blackmail payment to stop the spammer from publishing videos of me "mastrubating" [sic], and showing a password as "proof" that they were able to hack into my computer; the password that they show is always the one for myFitnessPall, they never show any other password.

I think that this is a pretty solid indication that the intrusion was on the "myFitnessPal" website rather than on my computer. Actually, if I were a Bad Guy, I would go after a website rather than an individual's computer. Bigger payoff, many more potential victims that way.
