Do You Know Who's Watching You? Miss Teen USA Spied On By a Hacker
Here’s a frightening thought: someone could be watching your every move simply by hacking into the webcam built into your computer. It happened to Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, who recently shared her experience on Fox and Friends.
There is currently a federal investigation being conducted to find the person who hacked into the 19-year-old's computer camera. The person allegedly told Wolf they had shots of her in her bedroom and tried to extort her for money.
Wolf warned about the importance of online safety: “It’s very important to change your passwords, delete your cookies, put a sticker over your webcam because you never know when someone could be watching.”
Juliet Huddy explained further on The O’Reilly Factor about how something like this could happen to any unsuspecting person. “I can send an email to you with a virus attached to it. If you click on that attachment, you open the virus. That virus can infect the entire computer. Then I have the ability to remotely do things on your computer, including turning on the camera.”
“We live in a dangerous time now,” Bill O’Reilly said, recalling that his website, billoreilly.com, was hacked into a few years ago. The hacker is now serving time in a federal penitentiary.
