My personal web cam
This is the chilling moment a woman realized her web camera was spying on her when it turned to look at her and said, “Bonjour, madame.” Several warnings have been issued on internet-connected cameras that can be remotely hacked by pervs and used to spy on people.
Now one woman in the Netherlands has learned just how intrusive these gadgets can be after buying a cheap version from the Dutch retailer Action. ” Hundreds of thousands of unsecured personal cameras are available to watch online, in real time, thanks to sick websites that allow voyeurs to snoop on the general public.
“I heard, ‘Bonjour, madame,'” she wrote in a Facebook post that has since gone viral. The problem is so widespread, even Mark Zuckerberg and Pope Francis have placed stickers over their smartphone cameras to stop someone watching them.
Voyeurism is one of the biggests American pastimes of the 21st century.
