I’ve read some articles and watched some videos about this. That some hackers can access your camera and record you by installing a malware downloaded by clickjacking.
I’m not a processionnal in hacking, actually I don’t even know the basics of that. But I think I’m knowledgable enough on computers to know that under normal circumstances, if you somehow download a malware, unless you run it, it shoudn’t be able to do anything. Also, when your browser tries to access your camera, it asks you if you want to trust a website for that.
so, is it really possible to do that without you knowing anything or giving any permission for a program to run in the background?
according to one of the articles I’ve read, it was about a malware named PsiXBot , so maybe there are specifics about this malware, but my question is more about if there is any real danger of you getting recorded without knowing it, may it be used by this PsiXBot or not.
