comment Can webcams be turned on without the indicator light?
@user6373 that is one way of accomplishing the same task, it depends on the device. But, at the end of the day, the lights on the device is controlled by the firmware.

comment Why doesn't the same origin policy block get requests that contain arguments?
It depends on the XHR. But yes for the purposes of CSRF, you should assume that the client can send arbitrary requests, and that the response may be sent by the server, but not visible to the attacker.

comment Why do some people really hate security via client-side?
@Pacerier In my mind, hacker is just a title earned by a highly skilled engineer. No programmer wants to write insecure code, and in order to be a successful penetration tester you have to understand how the application works better than the engineers who wrote it. Studying compsci and understand the theories behind application design is just the first step.
