Remote Webcam Spy Pennsylvania School

SpyCamThe suburban Philadelphia school being investigated for spying on students using MacBook laptops will lose the ability to turn on the built-in cameras remotely when they update their security software.

Absolute Software, makers of LANrev, say they are going to remove the webcam remote activation feature from the software this week.

In a note to customers today, the company said:

“We know that webcam pictures are an ineffective tool in tracking down the location of a stolen computer. Taking pictures of lawful computer users without their permission, and without law enforcement involvement, is contrary to Absolute’s policies and is inconsistent with our existing, more effective product offering.”

“Based on recent events, we have received many inquiries about TheftTrack from customers who are concerned and who want to ensure their organizations are not involved in a similar incident.”
