Cam Light Came On?

11 posts in this topic

Okay so I'm sitting there clicking around on iTunes and the tiny green light next to my inbuilt cam on my mac turns on. I quickly grabbed something and stuck it over the cam but what the hell. Anyone know what this is about and why this would suddenly go on by itself or does it mean someone is getting back door access to my laptop?

 

I have NEVER seen this light on before and only used the cam once when chatting to a family member, can't remember if the light was on then but I assume so. This is a bit worrying x

If it was spooks, then the light would not appear.  They're actively spying on Skype and webcam comms, simply because they can.  

 

Emerging surveillance technologies not used exclusively by government agencies, they are being exploited by the criminal fraternity.  

 

Here's where I warned about concealing cameras six months ago.
