Hackers access couple’s webcam, take photos of bathroom
Could predators be spying on you through your computer webcam? According to the FBI, the answer is yes – and an Asheboro couple says it happened to them.
We’re all guilty of clicking on questionable links on social media. If your computer is infected, hackers wait until your computer is idle and that’s when they can access your webcam remotely and watch your intimate moments from thousands of miles away.
Ashton White and her husband, who live in Asheboro, said hackers accessed their webcam and took photos of their bathroom. Now, the FBI is investigating how it happened.
