The latest story from the Edward Snowden leaks yesterday drives home that the NSA and its spy partners possess specialized tools for doing exactly that.According to , the NSA uses a plug-in called GUMFISH to take over cameras on infected machines and snap photos.Cybercriminals, sextortionists, law enforcement, and even school districts have all been doing this kind of spying for a number of years.Spy tools, whether designed by intelligence agencies, cyber crooks or internet creeps, can turn your camera on without illuminating the indicator light.Another NSA plug-in called CAPTIVATEDAUDIENCE hijacks the microphone on targeted computers to record conversations.
Intelligence agencies have been turning computers into listening devices for at least a decade, as evidenced by the Flame spy tool uncovered by Kaspersky Lab in 2012, which had the ability to surreptitiously turn on webcams and microphones and perform a host of other espionage operations.
If you use your laptop camera often for Skyping and video conferencing, you might prefer the C-slide, which uses a sliding door to cover and uncover your camera's eye.
Sadly, covering your camera still won't prevent spies, intruders and even web sites and phone apps from surreptitiously turning on the internal microphone on your computer or mobile phone, computer, or Vo IP phone and listening in on conversations.
Muting the mic won't work, since it's possible for an intruder to unmute it.
Your best defense is probably to insert a dummy plug into the microphone jack to prevent sound from being picked up by the internal mic.
