Webcams are very vulnerable to intrusion and stealth viewers.

It shows an experiment Daily News has done.

More than 6000 sneak preview were recorded during the seven months that the newspaper reporter had a webcam installed in his living room.

On one occasion an unknown person hacked into the camera from an IP address in Italy and secretly looked at the reporter, who at the time was in his living room.

The survey shows that around five per cent of infringements took place via the Swedish IP addresses.

Most are in private homes, but also in a lot of companies and a few municipalities.
