Research from our Research Center, for a client provides that, 82 percent of laptop users expressed concern about the possibility of their webcams being ‘hijacked,’ according to a soon-to-be released study.

Representing the latest trend in cybercrime, webcams provide an easy way for individuals and organizations to spy on users. Last fall, a Rutgers student committed suicide after a webcam secretly videotaped him kissing another man. Unfortunately, such incidents are not limited to college pranks.

“Last year alone, we saw a successful lawsuit against a Philadelphia school district for spying on students, an investigation on a leading rent-to-own company accused of spying on its customers, and a California man sent to prison for hacking over 100 webcams. These cases illustrate that webcam hacking is not a hypothetical risk; it’s a reality,” explains Parham Eftekhari, president and founder of CamPatch, a newly formed company that manufactures web camera covers.
