Study proves that you can secretly hijack an older Mac's webcam

Ya so you know how people are always totally over paranoid and think people can turn their webcam on without them knowing. They go so far as to cover them with PostIt's or special covers… turns out they weren't really all that paranoid. 

A pair of Johns Hopkins researchers recently published a research paper showing that it's possible to control the camera of a mac while keeping the indicator dark.

If you believe common wisdom, it shouldn’t be possible to take over most webcams without alerting users. The indicator LED is supposed to be hack-proof,

Hi everyone this is #MegaBall  4 
The number 1 circle share on Google+ the past 3 weeks and will be this week too.
Megaball 2 has now been shared over 1100 times and almost 900 unique public shares.

Like everytime this is not made by exact science and there will always be omissions or mistakes and if you feel that you should be in it do not be afraid to message me or even comment down below how you have made efforts to share this outside Google+. Sharing to outside as well is key!
It brings in your friends to Google+ and teaches them about the joy and the power of Circle Sharing

Hi and welcome  this is #MegaBall #2.

910 unique public shares already.  The second best of all time. Please share to be considered for next week`s #MegaBall  #5.

#MegaBall #4 is rolling now. The link is here https://plus.google.com/115818365607064275331/posts/Mi2kJoX3uEi 
THIS is going to be promoted like no other circle in Google+ history.

Look out for lots of great new followers if you have been included.
Number one was a massive success with over 430 sharers so far.
By far the most popular circle of the week on Circle Count.
#Megaball  #2 has exceeded that and by a long way. May even double it.

I really believe that this is the age of connection and that by sharing this you are contributing.
To be included in #MegaBall #3 next week you will probably have given it plus 1 and shared this circle publicly at least once. 
You will also probably have engaged in some way on some other content by me during the week. Sharing or commenting. 

I have written about the #MegaBall  here at michaelqtodd.com/megaball and will update the post during the week to record engagement on this one.
Let us make this rock. Is 1000 shares possible? I think so.
