Submission + - IT Repair installs webcam spying software (

Vapon writes: A lady noticed her computer was running slower after she had brought her computer in to be repaired. She took the computer to a second repair shop where they found that one of the problems was that her webcam would turn on whenever it detected her around and was taking photo's and uploading it to a website. The repair technician that installed the software has done this to at least 10 woman and has photos of at least one undressing.
