Are You Being Watched Via Your Webcam?

By Rick Pearcey • November 19, 2014, 10:31 AM

"A website is displaying the video streams of webcams in tens of thousands of private homes and businesses around the world to show how easy it is to intercept them if the owner doesn’t change the manufacturer’s default user name and password," Bob Unruh reports at WND.

"Last week, I sat at my computer and watched a young man from Hong Kong relaxing on his laptop; an Israeli woman tidying the changing room in a clothes store; and an elderly woman in the UK watching TV," WND quotes Joseph Cox writing at Motherboard magazine.

"All of these people were completely unaware that I was spying on them, thousands of miles away, through devices that were inadvertently broadcasting their private lives on the Internet," Cox wrote.
