Webcams – Hackability, automatic privacy covers

Hi all,

I’ve tried to look this up with not much luck. Has there been any improvement in preventing webcam hackability? Edward Snowden noted in his book that it was possible to turn on webcams without activating the ‘on’ light. Does anyone know if there’s been any attempt to bolster security on these types of devices?

Also I thought it would be cool to get a webcam that automatically closes a physical privacy cover when the webcam is not in use, with a little servo motor. It seems no one has attempted to make anything like this. As I’m in and out of meetings all day I am unlikley to close a manual privacy cover after every meeting
