Hackers (and Gov't) Can Spy on You Through Your Webcam


The video below shows how easy it is for a hacker to turn on the webcam on your computer and watch your every move. It's reasonable to deduce that if a low-grade hacker can do this, then it is likely to be child's play for government spy agencies to do the same.

no shit sherlock? I'm starting to wonder if this blog is the feds. a disinfo operation. It's like a broken record. 3 articles about fluoride a week. another 5 articles about depopulation. another 5 about Monsanto. Classic disinfo technique to waste people's time.

People who aren't software engineers *and* who haven't tried programming a virus themselves shouldn't be getting opinions, because their opinions are grounded in fear and very few facts. Allow me to be the one to knock a little reality into the situation: it isn't possible for any random person to hack into your computer, much less turn on your webcam. You'd have to be setup and targeted. Don't you think there would be more stories like this if it were so easy?

I know computers and technology can seem magical, but they're actually pretty disorganized. Don't worry.
