Ex-Official Says FBI Can Secretly Activate an Individual's Webcam Without the Indicator Light Turning On
The FBI can secretly activate a computer's webcam to spy on an individual without turning on the indicator light, a former official revealed to the Washington Post in an article published Friday.
According to the Washington Post's account of what Marcus Thomas -- former assistant director of the FBI's Operational Technology Division in Quantico -- said, "The FBI has been able to covertly activate a computer's camera -- without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording -- for several years, and has used that technique mainly in terrorism cases or the most serious criminal investigations."
