Is Your Webcam Watching You?

For VICE's Zeke Spector, putting a piece of tape over the webcam was just good practice; one never knows who may be looking in. But with the seemingly endless amount of digital meetings for work and family hangouts, Zeke had become somewhat complacent putting back on the tape after every use.
So he was absolutely terrified when he received an email that claimed it had been recording him in a compromising situation and would release the video to all his contacts unless he paid a ransom in Bitcoin.
Zeke began his adventure down another rabbit hole to see how feasible a webcam attack is and explore the underbelly of cybercrime that results in millions of dollars in losses a year.

I brought a tablet once a Toshiba windows tablet from pc world, the we came would randomly come on so I returned it. From that day on I used nail varnish to cover over the webcam and it’s easy to remove when you come to sell with nail vanish remover. Purple or black is the best colour.

Deepfake videos are much more terrifying. Any woman's face can be applied to any porn video and used to extort money from her. She could lose her job, professional reputation, home, friends. Revealing you may be a porn user is peanuts by comparison.

Last year I received a notification on my PC which said that I received some money in my bitcoin account. I clicked on "View transaction", and immediately my laptop was under his control. This guy could move my cursor and was trying to login to my accounts before I turned the computer off. Wierd thing is that my mouse was not working while he was connected. Next day he logged in to my bitcoin account and stole all my funds. ($35😂😂) I suspect that the guy sent me an some file which was auto-downloaded on my telegram. Note: 1. this laptop had a brand new OS which was installed on the same day. No other Wierd softwares were installed. 2. My wifi router was not compromised. 3. I did not click on any phishing links.

Nobody is ever "hacked". Basically, if there's some giant hack and a large amounts of passwords, emails, etc gets leaked, then botnets will just send out emails.
