    Cool "Sneaky" software may be watching u...

    SEATTLE, Washington (AP) -- Right now, your boss, your spouse or the government could secretly be reading all your typed words -- even the ones you deleted -- while surreptitiously snapping your picture.

    Sound alarming? The man who makes it possible is the first to agree.

    "It's horrifying!" says Richard Eaton, who develops, markets and even answers the technical help line for WinWhatWhere software.

    It seems CNN took the article down down. Here's the site: winwhatwhere

    About that web cam ****: Can that software tap into any webcam (um...like the one that is always facing me) or do you think the target has to somehow unkowingly acquire a specific webcam that works with the software?

    If you think you know the names of Investigator's modules, you don't.

    Investigator now randomly renames and moves itself on the installed computer. It simply cannot be found by searching for a file name.
    Is there a way to find out if someone is infected with this ****?
