Personal computers today come equipped with technology that probably seemed space-aged only a couple decades ago. Everything from crazy-fast processors to hard drives with the capabilities once reserved for government machines is available on a computer that you can easily carry in your satchel to and from work. Another now-standard feature is the webcam…and that is why you need to watch the video below.

It was created as a PSA to warn people about the prevalence of webcam hacking, and it is disturbing, to say the least. Hackers may send a poison email to your address, and once it’s opened it allows them control of your webcam. Think of all the silly things we do when we’re home on our own – now imagine someone watching every single move remotely. Creepy, isn’t it? Have you ever given this possibility a thought? Will you be more careful with your computer from now on? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and share on Facebook to make more people aware of personal and computer safety.
