The key is to get the Meterpreter installed on their system first.
Like in my last article on remotely installing a keylogger onto somebody's computer, this guide will continue to display the abilities of Metasploit's powerful Meterpreter by hacking into the victim's webcam.
This will allow us to control the webcam remotely, capturing snapshots from it.
Why exactly would you want to hack into somebody's webcam? But the real purpose is to show just how easy it is, so you're aware that it can be done—and so you can protect yourself against it.
Maybe you suspect your significant other of having a fling. Unlike just installing a command shell on the victim computer, the Meterpreter has the power to do numerous and nearly unlimited things on the target's computer.
We can do that by typing:meterpreter So, what can you do to make sure no one is peeking in on your habits in front of the computer? Some laptops with built-in webcams actually have a slide cover you can use.
If that's not the case, a piece of non-translucent tape should to the trick, unless you want to buy one of these or these things.
And if you still have one of those old-school USB webcams, simply unplug it.
This is a live, streaming HD webcam from Venice Beach, California, just south of Santa Monica.
Venice Beach is an eclectic, funky, and definitely unique place where sidewalk vendors line the boardwalk selling their wares, many of the items homemade; and street performers entertain the passing crowds by performing their unusual talents.
The Cam can be operated by the viewer by clicking on the Control Cam button.
One of the most interesting times to view Beach Cam is during the weekend, when up to 150,000 people visit a day.
