DENVER – Web cameras make it easy to keep in touch with far away friends and family. If you have a web cam on your home computer, laptop or even your cell phone, a hacker can be lurking, just waiting for a chance to gain control.

“The bad guys go out there and find vulnerabilities in different applications and programs,” says Michael Gregg, COO of Superior Solutions Inc.

Once you click on it, your computer is overrun by the hacker’s program.

“When the hackers find a problem before its fixed, its called a Zero-Day or IE-Exploit,” says Gregg.
