Still think your webcam is a good idea?Webcam hacking has officially gone mainstream with yesterday's revelation that the new Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, was the victim of a "sextortion" plot in which someone slipped Remote Administration Tool (RAT) software onto her computer and used it to snap (apparently nude) pictures of Wolf in her room. "I wasnít aware that somebody was watching me (on my webcam)," she told The Today Show. "The light (on the camera) didnít even go on, so I had no idea."
Wolf said that the hacker tried to extort her, threatening to release the pictures publicly if she didn't follow his demands. The FBI has admitted that it is investigating the case and eventually said that hasidentified a suspect.
