Snowdon said the NSA can watch us through our web cams, and in fact I have seen a spate of people putting tape over them.

Now, just how is this going to be implemented?

1) remote control through the network: Requires a receiver in the stack that can intercept certain packages and manipulate the web cam driver.

2) Data routing back through the network: The Cam driver data needs to be packaged as a network packet and sent over the network.


Now, I happen to know a lot about the kernel, and I can tell you there is absoloutely no built in way for this to happen, so unless the NSA have secretly installed a filter driver over these devices it isn't possible.

And of course as you should all be using firewalls, lock down, UAC and all that, this is extremely hard to do these days.


So its all a load of crap of you ask me and Snowdon is an attention seeking bullshitter.
