Cybersecurity Predictions: We expect to see a major increase in more sophisticated and resistant sextortion attacks | Vumetric

We expect to see a major increase in more sophisticated and resistant sextortion attacks. The ‘Save Yourself’ malware is a new form of sextortion designed to both extort victims by capturing embarrassing videos and photos of them, and potentially compromise bitcoin wallets and mine other cryptocurrencies. Sextortion attacks have become widespread and will be able to reach over 100,000 users by 2020
