Those demands could consist of money, login credentials, or in cases like what happened to former Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf, video footage of the victim performing sexually explicit acts.
She is 23 and says she is living with her older sister in Sidon, Lebanon. The girl reveals she is sexually attracted to Samir. She then begins performing sexual acts on herself and asks if he would reciprocate. At the end of their conversation, the girl asks Samir what he does. She’s impressed: “Listen, I’m a man, and I recorded a video of you [during your chat with the girl]….The webcam is a cherished tool of digital extortionists.With the help of a remote access trojan (RAT) like Black Shades or Dark Comet, a bad actor can “slave” a user’s computer, assume control over their webcam, record the unknowing individual, and leverage that footage to get what they want from their victim.O., which is to dangle a Terry Richardson photo shoot in front of a young, aspiring model, just as long as she’s cool with him dangling something else in front of her, too. This is the guy who once said of breaking into modeling, “It’s not who you know, it’s who you blow.I don’t have a hole in my jeans for nothing.” Richardson is shamelessly upfront about his sleep-your-way-to-the-top stipulations, and his Skype chat with Kate follows the same trajectory as another Skype conversation he had with model Felice Fawn that same year.
