This is just fuckin’ disturbing.
Maybe I’m slow and I missed something everyone else knew long ago. But in playing around with a flash presentation on the Post web site, and went into the flash document settings. I’m sure it’s intended to be a legitimat feature, but the window that pops up asks you if the web site can have access to your web cam and microphone.
I was able to recreate this on about half the flash presentations I tried on various web sites.
No… no potential there for invasion of privacy. I’m sure noooooo one would find a way to make the default setting for this to be “on”.
