Guernsey Police are issuing a warning to islanders after receiving reports of online hacking.

They say hackers have sent emails quoting user passwords and threatening to release footage of islanders’ using adult websites unless a ransom is paid.

Police are urging anyone who has been targeted not to respond, to change their password, and to run anti-virus software.

They should also report it to Action Fraud, either online or by phone on 0300 123 2040.
