Last month I was browsing the internet, and clicked on a link on a website. If you click a link at this site ususally a pop up comes up. Therefore I knew a pop up was going to come up and I closed it as usual. But for that brief second my webcam turned on. Ingnoring it I continued working.
A few days back this happened again and I installed antivirus (which I didn't have before). Nothing came up, but now I'm very worried that a hacker has installed malware on my laptop and is secretly spying on me by disabling the led, and that the led turning on was just to take a pic.
But on the other hand, if someone goes through so much work (like installing malware without me installing anything, etc) he would have held ransom against me already, as my laptop is on all day in my room and I change in my room. But he didn't.
Is there any way to identify if something like this happened?
