Interpol announced the arrest of 58 persons in the Philippines for sextortion, including one case where a 17-year-old victim committed suicide in July last year following blackmailing by the group.In fact, "the scale of these sextortion networks is massive, and run with just one goal in mind: to make money regardless of the terrible emotional damage they inflict on their victims," says Sanjay Virmani, director of the Interpol Digital Crime Center.Marcus Thomas, a former assistant director of the FBI's Operational Technology Division in Quantico, Virginia, tells the Washington Post that the FBI could spy on anyone's webcam without turning on the camera's indicator light.While not all webcams have indicator lights, and many laptops do not have them at all, the indicator light is a nice security feature that tells you when the camera is active.Many have either claimed or speculated that one way the NSA and other U. spy agencies got around the prohibition of spying on Americans was to let a third party do it for them. News reports, based on the leaks of NSA information by Edward Snowden, say that GCHQ stored millions of images gleaned from its webcam surveillance.According to the New York Times, the Australian Signals Directorate tapped a U. law firm representing Indonesian interests and offered their intercepts to the NSA. These images can be retrieved in various ways, including the use of advanced face recognition systems, so seemingly unrelated video chats from different computers and with different names or web addresses, can be linked together.
Thomas told the Post that the FBI has had these tools for years but uses "Rattingly" (the webcam spying tool) sparingly.
Many of the images obtained were very personal ones and could be used to either embarrass or blackmail users.
Reports in the UK say that NSA engineers helped GCHQ develop the Optic Nerve program.
Along with the photos, data on your location is displayed in the intercept so you can be easily tracked.
