I just read an article on Mark Zuckerberg in which there is a photo with a casual inclusion of his computer - with the camera and microphone TAPED OVER!

Mark Zuckerberg is just as paranoid as the rest of us - NY Daily News

I have been doing this myself ever since my latop camera "popped on" randomly at 2AM one morning by itself. I have since also DISABLED the camera and microphone in Device Manager unless I am using it for a Skype conference or online deposition. I have been reliably informed that there is a default "back door" to every webcam that can be activated remotely with the proper software, by law enforcement (hopefully not without a warrant!) or by other more nefarious operators.

It was just quite interesting to see that someone of the stature of Zuckerberg would be so inclined to take such precautions! "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't out to get you...."

:angry:
