This is the most insightful post I have ever seen. I see this issue in a whole new light now, that it's Microsoft's fault people write worms for its operating system. The fact that they have bugs in their software on purpose never occurred to me, but now I have seen the light. Your clever use of 'teh' enhances your argument in a way I never thought possible. I truly have a new outlook on life after reading this, and intend to install Linux on every computer I see for the rest of my life, because clearly it is completely bug-free and is never subject to any sort of malicious attack.

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#10049203)

Meet the Peeping Tom worm By John Leyden Published Monday 23rd August 2004 14:56 GMT A worm that has the capability to using webcams to spy on users is circulating across the Net. Rbot-GR, the latest variant of a prolific worm series, spreads via network shares, exploiting a number of Microsoft security vulnerabilities to drop a backdoor Trojan horse program on vulnerable machines as it propagates. Once a backdoor program is installed on a victim's PC it's game over and an attacker can do whatever takes their fancy. But Rbot-GR comes pre-loaded with functionality specifically designed to control webcam and microphones. Other variants of the worm do not come with this "Peeping Tom" routine, according to AV firm Sophos. "If your computer is infected and you have a webcam plugged in, then everything you do in front of the computer can be seen, and everything you say can be recorded," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "It would be like having a regular web cam conversation except you wouldn't know you're taking part in it." Aside from its voyeuristic behaviour, the Trojan component of the worm will attempt to steal registration information for games and PayPal passwords from infected machines. It's a thoroughly nasty piece of code so it comes as some relief that Rbot-GR hasn't particularly widespread. Sophos has received only as handful of reports about the worm and most vendors rate it as a medium-risk threat. As usual, Rbot-GR is a Windows-only menace. ®

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#10049206)

I still don't know if it was real or not, but it popped up once on a search for Back Orifice many many years ago, back when BO was still commonplace. It consisted of a simultaneously taken screenshot and webcam picture. The screenshot was just Windows, with a little error dialog that had suddenly popped up saying:
As your computer, I think we need to have a talk. You've got a girl sitting there on the bed behind you, and yet you're sitting here using me. Have you ever considered that you might be gay?
Accompanied with this was a simultaneous snapshot from the computer's webcam, revealing a guy, with his girlfriend laying on the bed reading something behind him, sitting in front of his computer shirtless, staring at the screen in complete and utter dumbfoundment.

Funny now that I think about it, but I used to use Sub 7 on my home computer so I could access it from anywhere via an odd port and password protected. I could view my web cam, take control of my computer, ftp files upload and download to where-ever I was.

Honestly, it was an extremely useful program. And when I was done, I'd just shut down the server.
