Smile for (the Hacker Behind) the Camera!


Hackers have finally caught up to current video technology. Sophos, a respected tech company with virus and antispam products, is reporting on a new virus, called Rbot-GR. In addition to allowing hackers to access passwords, files, software keys, and almost anything else stored on, or connected to, your machine, it also lets them see and listen through your webcam if you have one installed.

This article provides more details and some suggestions on how to protect yourself.

I’d suggest a little black cloak that you can throw over your webcam, kinda like the ones they used over the Palantir seeing stones in the Lord of the Rings.

Hmm…too geeky? Yeah, thought so.
