Teen admits to hacking webcams

Written by Nick Farrell



All for the lulz

A 16 year old teen has created a storm in Blighty after admitting to the BBC that it was a doddle to hack CCTV Webcams.

The boy told a BBC Radio 5 live investigation that it was a doddle to hack webcams, but claims that it is just a 'laugh.' The investigation also uncovered websites where hackers trade pictures of people captured on their own webcams without their knowledge, and a black market where access to compromised computers can be bought and sold for a few pence each.

The London teenager told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast, "I do sort of feel bad, but at the same time you're having a laugh and it wasn't like I was hurting people."
