Consider this a warning. If you are the type of person who constantly likes to skype, facebook video chat, Google video chat or just have a laptop that has a built in webcam, there is a big possibility that you are being watched. By hackers. Yes, you read that right. It is scary and creepy but unfortunately, it’s reality. FBI Agent Justin Vellese explained that “With the Web cam comes the opportunity for people to use malicious software to control the Web cam,  There is malicious software that can turn on the Web cam, turn it off. It’s possible they can even turn off the light that indicates the Web cam is on.” This case happens everywhere around the world without our knowledge. Because not a lot of people have knowledge when it comes to these malicious malware, and how readily available on the internet. So what is the solution? Be extra careful. Make sure your firewall is always ON. When you are not using your camera, maybe cover it with a sticker/post it. This is a serious crime so spread the information to family and friends so that they are aware too.
