More confirmation that Silverlight is watching you!

Specs: Windows 7
I installed Silverlight because my county mapping for property search required it. So, I was going through the program and low and behold I saw live video and audio of my office. The program had turned on my web cam that is installed on my laptop. I disabled it in my devices.

It's not just Silverlight that can turn on a webcam - hackers can do it too. It is always best turn it off or tape it up (or something) so that its output is only visible when you need it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I tried to get the webcam to work for myself, through driver updates/software but it never did untill the ucash police ransomware virus turned it on in my face asking for 100 bucks.


Simple solutions are often the best
