Webcam hack for testing purposes
In collaboration with the swiss newspaper 20 Minuten and soomz.io, professional hacker Nicholas demonstrated how easily a webcam can be taken over.
To illustrate the assault in a realistic way, a company in Jona had set up a webcam in their server room. Nicholas Hansen of Swiss Cyber Storm managed to intrude within less than one hour and demonstrated, how easily a it is to get access to a webcam. This is where our blink comes in: ‹The safest solution to this problem is an optical protection›, says Bernhard Tellenbach, lecturer in IT security at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences and President of Swiss Cyber Storm.
