Media reports claim that the FBI can turn on your computer camera so that the green light doesn’t come on. Apparently, the agency has had the ability to secretly activate a PC camera without triggering the light that lets you know it is recording for years now.
The FBI agents admitted that the spy laptop recording was mainly used in terrorism cases or the most serious of criminal investigations. So, they can do it. The story was about how the Federal Bureau of Investigation tracked a guy called Mo who made a series of threats to detonate bombs at universities and airports across the country in 2012.
It turned out that the FBI’s hacker team developed a piece of malicious software that had to be delivered secretly when the guy signed on to his Yahoo e-mail account. The malware had to collect details of the Internet websites he had visited and indicators of the location of his41 PC.
Ironically enough, although the FBI was able to get a search technology into Mo’s machine, it is still yet to be able to arrest him, as he is in Iran at the moment. If Mo ever comes back, it wouldn’t be surprising that the court receives many evidential snaps of him looking dazed into his laptop first thing in the morning.

|"WHO cares if they are in fact spying on its citzens if you have nothing to hide".....That statement sums up everything thats wrong with this country. Why not allow police to stop you for no reason,drag you out of your car,search you and car and hold you in jail for a undetermined amount of time while they kick in the door to your home. Dont require them to have a search warrant or produce any kind of evidence against you. Just allow them to search your home whenever they please,seize your property and check that for anything they dont like....who cares right? As long as you have nothing to hide.Forget about the thousands of men that have given up their lives,so we have the right to say NO!!!!!I think Im going to be sick|
|While you maybe secure in the midst of the crowd, don’t tread to the fringes, for it’s there you will be picked off. The technology today doesn’t need operators nor any “reason” to monitor your behavior, it’s squirrels away zettabytes of data for who knows what reason.|
Wanting privacy and anonymity should not be a crime nor reason to be suspect.
Maybe it’s that you never knew you had freedom?
|this is kinda not new but sure.|
if you are worried about it do something about it complain to your congressman start a petition even class action who knows what you can do . but bashing people for there opinion blows my mind. i think the issue was fbi not the nsa so why they always get dragged in is beyond me. lets see why they would do this well; the thousands of pedoheads on the net in networks with a false sense of security like tor . lets face reality do you all really think they will do this wide scale? to avg citizens ? im not sure but what i did notice is a large upswing in fbi requests for peoples gmail. on topic i remove my drivers day 1 for the cam even going s far as removing it from the pc but im paranoid . @10 although that is not what is wrong with this country people for the most part are blindsided by this some just wont and dont care some already knew years ago and use steps to curb this but its not wrong to state an opinion . whats wrong is we still yet cannot be heard enough to get our gov to stop we need big companies to do our dirty work . occupy wall st was not nearly as of importance to me as this toptic yet most us citizens dont see this as a problem over obamacare etc. each time a leak that blows the minds of tech heads and nerds all over mainstream media shoves crap down our throats in the us to distraction. this is obvious. so whats left net articles and no tv time on topic here plus lack of wtf is actually going on . i tell friends hey this was leaked they say huh ?? so my point is knowledge is a big issue here people dont get hacking or encryption etc most dont know if there firewall is on etc but how can you protect against the people who help build the protection you cant at all yet do go online lol only way to be 100% safe . the gov will only stop maybe if they see us as pissed about spying we are taxes or healthcare etc . we watch other nations be pissed off at this and other situations like it but again the us gov even nullifies the un eu attempts to curb the spying.
|Anyone can do it just install Prey on your pc,laptop or phone and you can watch and take pictures of person with your laptop and get logs of keystrokes their passwords and logins as well as being able to track the PC or mobile anywhere in the world.The technology is the same and free to the user,if you have a camera you should assume it can be done. h t t p://preyproject.com/blog/cat/recoveries|
|PC cam on American pie springs to mind it`s been used as an exploit for quite a while with inbuilt mike and we all know who started wire tapping people in witch/commie hunts years before,dear old J.Edgar and the FBI,nothing new under the sun or the FBI.|

|Duh... This has been known about and done for many years now.|
One reason is the dangerous "active-x" Microcrap uses and it is really only for Microcrap to "update" your system.
Very easy to spoof the credentials and have it uploaded like an update and the user would never know that some one could and does watch them wank off watching online porn. So you have a cam? Then does as I do; throw a rag over it or turn it away from the room.. Oh don't forget this is also done on your cell phone also..

|This is wrost than wire-taping without court order. FB* is clearly acting outside and above the laws. What will happen if the police enter and search your house without a seach warrant? I think the police will be in deep trouble. Oh, what about FB*!|

|Frank Herbert wrote about a fictional trillionaire who owned among other things a very high end chain of stores, like Neiman Marcus. At every opportunity he sent gifts to wealthy and powerful people around the world, all his gifts had hidden cameras. He pretty much had the entire world under his black-mailing thumb.|
If you run windows or have an x-box with Kinect sensor Bill Gates may be watching you right now!

|Every time I tell windows to save or close a file it asks me if I'm sure, which annoys the hell out of me! But the febs want to watch me jerk off and no annoying pop-up?|
If they really want to watch that's cool, but I want to get paid!
|So what's new. This been around since the early 80's.|
Remember the 80's good old American Online days, lol.
It's a shame so many people are computer dumb. Even with
the PC Camera green on, most people still wouldn't notice.

|consider this.... inrealtime- if you recorded 1 min. of say 10mil people online then it would take 10 mil miniatures to view each of the samples (you do the math- 60min / 10mil = hours) then from that you could select which users to watch... thats a lot real people spending a lot of time just to do a 1 min sample. Netcraft's March 2012 website survey discovered 644,275,754 active websites. got this from indestructibles:" 1.67 billion people on the planet (plus three on the space station) who use the Internet. Googling around I couldn't find any hard, current numbers but it looks like people spend between 5-18 hours on the internet in a given week. Average that and get 11.5 hours a week, or 6.85% of the week. So on average (again) at any point in a week 6.5% of available people will be online. 6.85% of 1.67B is 114,228,000.". again you do the math.Then convert that into real live people doing the surveillance , thats a lot of people to keep out of the public eye. just something to consider.....LOL|

|lol @ 26 .. mine also don't have...|
anyway sam .. good info..
|Thanks for this article, I often wonder how often you are being watched through your cell phone or laptop camera, another question I have is for what purpose, sure terrorist groups etc.. but why the average joe, could this be some type of alien logbook to check on project earth and observe the bald apes, or maybe we are a reality show on some different planet, think about it, you can laugh but I do not think I am far from wrong. That is some truly scary stuff !! oh bye the way who do you really think runs the government.|
|The difference between prey and simple cam snaps is that it also keylogs every thing including passwords and logins and you can selectively lock the user out of the operating system etc aswell so a versatile RAT which can be controlled from a phone or PC with online updates.One has to remember covering cams is not always enough if your mike or speaker is accessed giving live audio feed as well in some cases. |
@28 profile databases for subjugation of the masses through the control of media and sites for everything from gagging the press which is currently done and controlled to marketing and product placement,misinformation and propaganda,there are many ways in which the information can be used from discrediting angry voices on forums to fabricating it or changing its context.Information gathered by spooks is not always used in very polite ways as with tapping foreign ministers lots of lurid and discrediting information may be gleaned and used to foreign nationals benefits in the hands of the right puppet masters.

|you can hear eeeeeeee! when regular old camera warm up to take a picture so a microcam just turn on light coming with it. if what ever it snapshot you that! are property of some one and can show you on internet world wide until if you go to a court like many at California courts to take out and delete any picture or video what it looks it no easy. how call the police if you fill like a some one rape your privacy if all like know more about you for what ever it social to kill them self's in this world of what them thing you not need a pc to know later just if causality people around your zip code are in 3x whit out know it. if some one mic you around can be like predators around what ever you was it. new cam can be like toy and can rape privacy and rape you for fun and kick you or stabbing etc..|
|@greymongel: Hate to burst your bubble but good ol' "America" does NOT in fact "help" other countries, rather it moves for position to one of power by trading certain concessions from those "needy" in exchange for "aid" or "help" or whatever else you are dreaming they freely "give away" for the good of their heart/image.|
America is pure, raw, unabated Capitalism and no self-respecting capitalist would every dream of giving away anything without receiving a return greater to that which America puts "in".
Control. It's all about control, and America is right up there with China in it's zeal for total control and domination.
Sadly for everyone, thanks to the negative advent of globalization, any attempts at tighter controls only results in loss of control over time.
...but if you prefer to take the BLUE pill, then you would remain in the blissfully ignorant world within your mind. The choice is yours, if you are in control...right?
