As you read this webpage, it would be safe to assume that you are sitting in the frame of a webcam.

Computer security experts suggest these cameras be covered while not in use due to software vulnerability.
“A webcam is a window into your personal life that anyone can access,” said Charles Meyer, University of Delaware senior and cofounder of Project Shotblock. “You may not use it that often, but a computer hacker can use it against you.”
