Gaffers Tape Throws NSA Spying Plans Into A Tailspin

webcam covered with gaffers tape-Thetapweorks.comThe online British version of Wired Magazine is recommending that anyone who is worried that the web cam on their computer or mobile device may be spying on them can just cover the lens with gaffers tape.

The report says that the NSA has a plug in called CAPTTIVATEDAUDIENCE that will hijack the recording capabilities of your device.

Alternately, you can order a sticker to go over the camera from the Electronic Frontier Foundation for about $7.00, but $7.00 worth of gaffers tape will probably cover every mobile device camera lens in England!
