Yeah, and it wasn't even through a computer that they got in. It was through a monitoring device that had weak security set up on it. People don't want to make things too hard to get into so they set up passwords that are just asinine like 1234 or 0000 so that all their workers know how to get into a remote piece of equipment. And, even worse, they never change them even after people quit or are fired and so these people who may or may not have a bone to pick with their former employer can literally access stuff. Duh!!!! Computer systems will always be hackable as long as humans are allowed to administer them and I don't see that changing. The human element is the weakest link in the system.The oil pipeline that got hacked in the South paid something like 4 million in ransom. You would think large corporations would be smart enough to be proactive and avoid that kind of stuff. Sad thing is that 4 million will just be passed off to consumers.
It's not even that complicated. They can't see anything anyway because my surface sits with the keyboard closed (backwards) which blocks the backside camera underneath my monitor stand so the only thing they'd see from my front camer if they cared to would be the bottom of my monitor stand.Easy fix, put a piece of black tape over your camera and take it off only when you want to use it. I'm so smart I even surprise myself.
