This document will provide a base line for what you may see when and if your webcam is being attacked by an attacker on the internet. Within this blog posting we will also take a look at ways you can disable, or damage the driver so that you can assure you will not be in someones blackmail listing. This document covers Windows XP Professional but can also extend to Windows versions 7, 8 and above.
So, it's come to my attention that malware writers that are attempting to get into, and onto a persons computer are not doing a good job of R&D Before they are writing their applications and are just making total idiots of themselves. In this blog post I'm going to attempt to cover something that should be discussed but never really is. How to write malware in the internet age and actually get your malware onto a target system.
Being a Dell customer since 2000, 2001 I had come to like the laptops that Dell had produced. All of the systems that were purchased through Dell were an Inspiron 8100, 5100 (which had it's own issues I will detail through this document) and a replacement system of the dell 5100 to a dell 5160 which seemed to have worked pretty well for it's lifetime. After a while since the systems began to slow down it was time to get a replacement and that's when I purchased the inspiron 6400 (E1505) which was also the same as the Precision line. The 6400 was replaced due to a cascade effect of video card failure, ram failure, hard disk failure, motherboard failure, and finally peripheral failure. Dell decided that it was time to upgrade me to the precision however, it wouldn't happen until 5 months later and constant fighting with them via phone that the Studio which replaced the 6400 was crap and the touchpad was subpar. Every time you typed something the mouse became erratic and wouldn't allow you to do any work. So, after putting up with this for 2 months I decided to reach out – fighting with Dell for about an additional 5 months they sent me the Precision line.
