Hackers May Access Your Webcam On or Off

http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/13/smile-hackers-can-silently-access-your-webcam-right-through-the-browser-again/

You know those people who have tape on their webcams?

Yeah, they may be onto something! This article shows that any psychopath hacker can and will access your computer and webcam even if you have it turned off or disabled. Scary right? Just one person or persons who know the tricks and trade of this kind of illegal cyber-stalking can see what you’re doing when you’re least aware of it and we all know how one thing, one recording or image a person takes can end up anywhere on the Internet.

How do we prevent this?

If you have a built-in cam, your best bet would be to either have thick tape put on it or keep your laptop cover face down to keep these foes at bay! Stay tuned for more!
