Does he really have my passwords? (Sextortion email)

I checked my email for the first time in forever and got an email from from guy with the email Save Yourself. I’ve looked up that these emails are scams, but at the top it states he knows one of my passwords. (In all honesty, it’s a very very old password I don’t use anymore that isn’t secure at all lmao)

“Your computer was infected with my private malware, your browser wasn’t updated / patched, in such case it’s enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more – Google: “Drive-by exploit”.

My malware gave me full access to all your accounts (see password above), full control over your computer and it also was possible to spy on you over your webcam.

I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your webcam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!

After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces and this email was sent from some hacked server.

I can publish the video of you and all your private data on the whole web, social networks, over email of all contacts.

But you can stop me and only I can help you out in this situation. “

Is it best that I just go ahead and factory reset my PC and Macbook, and then change my passwords afterwards??

Edit: My PC has no webcam. My Macbook does, but I can’t recall the last time I pleasured myself in front of it lmfao
