I've gotten the following email today (the password has been changed; and the Greek characters are reproduced verbatim):
Your ρasswοrd is REPLACED. Ι kηow α lot more τhngs about you τhaη τhαt.
I ρlaced α malwαre on τhe ροrn websιte αηd guess whαt, yοu visιτed this web sιte to hαve fun (you kηow whaτ I meαη).

Now, I wasn't watching porn online, nor do I have a webcam connected to my computer; nor are my email contacts available online (that I know of), but that password is a weak one I am using on quite a few websites. Also, some careless mailing list servers occasionally send that password to me as plaintext every once-in-a-while.
I'll mention the email comes from some outlook.com address; and my email was migrated to MS Outlook 365 a couple of years back.
My question: What - if anything - would you suggest I do, both to defend myself from the person behind me and to possibly warn/protects others above/from him?
