Deine MacBook-Kamera nimmt auf, du weißt es aber nicht…

Ja, man kann die in praktisch jedem Apple-Produkt verbaute Kamera einschalten ohne dass das Indikatorlicht aufleuchtet.

Apple went to some amount of effort to make sure that the LED would turn on whenever the camera was taking images […] MacBooks are designed to prevent software running on the MacBook’s central processing unit (CPU) from activating its iSight camera without turning on the light. But researchers figured out how to reprogram the chip inside the camera, known as a micro-controller, to defeat this security feature. […] That allows the camera to be turned on while the light stays off.

Sowohl die EFF als auch das deutsche BMFSFJ haben leicht ablösbare Webcam-Sticker im Angebot, um die Kameras einfach abzukleben.
