Webcam Trojans/hackers

I just keep getting trojans that enables the hacker to use my webcam and view me!! I have some experience with viruses so i am able to remove them each time, but this is kinda weird. I have mcafee antivirus, I work with trusted sites, and I update both windows, and antivirus. I think there is something wrong with my computer that allows the hacker to inject the virus each time to be able to get pass the antivirus! I have dell inspiron 15r 5520

Re: Webcam Trojans/hackers

These may be the reasons for the infection,

  • Email attachments
  • Fake updates presented for installed software
  • Peer-to-peer sharing software
  • Malicious video players and codecs
  • Free downloadable games
  • Chat software
  • IRC channels
  • Social media links pointing to infected files or websites

But a computer that does not have a reasonably up-to-date webcam software increased the risk for Camfecting. Also, try to clean your Windows Registry. Further, visit the below-mentioned site and download the anti-virus software it will completely remove the virus and restore your computer.
