5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

An alleged pervert has been arrested in Germany over allegations that he used malware to hack into webcams and spy on schoolgirls.

The unnamed hacker from the Aachen region allegedly invaded the privacy of 150 youngsters, German news service DPA reports.

The scheme was uncovered by Thomas Floß, from the association of data protection advisors, after he examined the computers of girls who noticed their machines were behaving erratically. He found evidence of a Trojan program, which spread using ICQ.

Subsequent analysis traced communications from compromised systems back to the alleged suspect's home. Police discovered a number of live feeds running when they raided his residence.

Cases of miscreants using spyware to gain control of webcams and spy on youngsters have been recorded in Cyprus, the UK and Spain, among other countries, before. ®
