Technology in these modern times is a blessing and a curse. There are so many things that we can do with our computers that we could not do just a couple of decades ago.
The Internet enables communication with people all over the world. However, this can be both a good and a bad thing. In the case of webcams, it can be great to be able to use the World Wide Web in order to communicate with loved ones that you would otherwise never be able to see in live action.
However, webcams also present a danger to people who use them. Hackers can get a hold of the images on webcams and watch you without your awareness of their presence. If they are dangerous, they could possibly even find out your address and come to your home to track you down.
This video was basically put together is a public service announcements to warn people about the dangers and prevalence of hacking through webcams. What is seen in the video was quite disturbing, as it shows how a hacker can simply send someone a malicious email and have access to everything they are doing. The hacker can watch you on webcam without you knowing he or she is there, and this can actually put your life in physical danger if the hacker turns into a stalker.
If you use a webcam, this is perfectly fine; it is just important to be very careful and protect yourself from hackers.
