כדאי לשים לב לתובנות. סר קן מרכז את הבסיס הפדגוגי שעומד במרכזה של כל רפורמה מוצעת. כל שנשאר הוא ליישם את העקרונות

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again)

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

You know those people who put tape over their laptop's webcam to keep digital peeping toms at bay? They're not crazy.

A new proof of concept is making the rounds today that demonstrates how a hacker can snap pics off your webcam, right through the browser, with no consent required.

We tested the proof of concept on the latest build of Chrome for Mac, and it pulled from our webcam without issue or any visible prompt. Others have found the exploit to work on IE10, but it seems to be patched on the most recent releases of Safari and Firefox. When it works, the only evidence that the camera was ever accessed is a near instant and oh-so-easy-to-miss blink of the LED indicator.

Fortunately, getting a solid layer of protection against such exploits moving forward is pretty straightforward. For one, you can tape up that webcam — it’s a bit tinfoil hat, sure, but it’s better than having a photo of your bad bits blasted out to the Internet on some shady-ass Tumblr. Second, consider using Firefox* with something like NoScript, disabling it only for trusted sites.
