YouTube's 'RAT' problem

1 post in this topic

It's never been easier to learn how to hack, according to a new report.

Digital Citizens Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy group, has uncovered thousands of YouTube videos teaching wannabe hackers how to gain access to victims' webcams and computers.

One example: A YouTube video plays romantic music and features a woman who has no idea that hackers are staring into her bedroom. In this particular video, they're also teaching others how to do the same.

The video had 37,000 views before it was taken down. These videos, often accompanied by music, show step-by-step instructions on what hackers refer to as "slaving" victims. They take over their computers, turn on their webcams, and sometimes even interact with them.
