Protect yourself from sextortion

A group of hackers has found a new way to extort large sums of money from scared internet users.

To demonstrate their capability, the hackers used social media to reveal to the targeted user examples of the information that they claimed had been recorded.

The group claimed that they’d infected the targeted user’s computer with malware, giving them the ability to collect and reveal the porn sites accessed by the user.

In order to prevent the potentially compromising information being released publicly, the victims were forced to make a Bitcoin payment to the hackers.

In an interview with the canadian broadcaster CBC, David Fraser, a privacy lawyer in Halifax, Nova Scotia, talks about the unhelpful response by authorities — effectively telling the victims that it was their own fault.


Fraser says that victim blaming doesn’t work, and compares it to abstinence-only sexual education — “All you’re doing is making people feel worse…” he explains. This leads to many of cases of ‘sextortion’ going unreported due to the inability of police and other authorities to deal with the sensitive nature of these crimes.

How can you protect yourself?

ESET — one of the largest IT security companies in the world — assures internet users that the recent attack was nothing more than a scam and that the attackers had no personal videos from the victims.

The attackers simply used email accounts, passwords, and other personal data that was made public through recent attacks on big companies such as LinkedIn, Adobe, and Yahoo.

To help users protect themselves from future attacks, the IT security company provides the following tips:

  • Change your passwords regularly.
  • Opt for strong passwords.
  • Keep all your devices updated.
  • If possible, use multi-factor or two-step verification.

Interpol’s website advises victims of sextortion to cease all contact with the perpetrator and report the case to the local police, online provider and, in case it occurs via a social network, also alert the administrator. You are also advised to never pay the demanded amount.

David Marshall is supporting charities using his OnlyFans page

Unfortunately not all charities are ok with it




Sex is unfortunately still looked down upon. Therefore many charities try to steer clear from it as much as possible.

David Marshall, a professional wrestler, personal trainer, and model from Perth – Australia, tried to donate $5,000AUD he raised via his OnlyFans page to Australian suicide prevention charity Beyond Blue. The charity rejected the donation due to ‘violation of their policy’.

The idea to raise money to Beyond Blue came after a long chat with someone that has been clean for five years through AA.

After his father passed away two years ago, Marshall became aware of the lack of support and research available for people from older generations.


“They’re stuck with the harden-the-fuck up attitude” described the model.

In a short period of time, the professional wrestler was able to raise more than $5000AUD for the suicide prevention charity.

The charity’s attitude hurt him

Back in December 2018, after an interview with Gay Star News, it came to the charity’s attention how he had raised the money. Beyond Blue contacted Marshall to inform him that they could not accept it because the collection violated their policies.

“They gave me the option to make it an anonymous donation and not to mention my fundraising for them, or they could give the money back,” he told Mainly Male.

The charity have also asked Marshall to remove all mentions of the charity from his social media profiles. The charity claimed that all fundraising activities should be registered.

“To hear that a charity didn’t want me to give them my extra cash was a slap in the face – to have it thrown back at me hurt a bit,” he reveals to us.

“You can’t spread awareness in silence”

Determined to keep his promise and give back to society, Marshall called Sydney-based not-for-profit Black Dog Institute. The facility undertakes research into the prevention, early intervention and treatment of depression and bipolar disorder.

After checking their policies, the not-for-profit was happy to accept the donation. Marshall decided to double the amount and donated a total amount of $10,000AUD.

“I think we’re now sitting at around $13,000AUD donated in total,” he proudly reveals to us.

In the future, the professional wrestler will keep looking for more ways to give back to Black Dog. He is also determined in producing more content for his OnlyFans page.
