Facebook "Peeping Tom" bug could have exposed your bad side

VicesDecember 29, 2012

Looks like your personal life is safe for now - besides that which you upload to social networks and online shopping sites everyday. Facebook has reportedly patched a security vulnerability that would have allowed hackers to turn on a user's webcam and record the user without their knowledge. The loophole was brought to the company's attention in July after Indian research firm XY Security reported it to Facebook through the bug-bounty program which allows hackers to be paid a bounty through Facebook for finding holes in their site.  Thank goodness. The last thing we want is ourselves coming up on Brazzer's site as one of the webcams. That's not good for anyone.
