It appears that after Mark Zuckerberg posted a congratulatory message when Instagram hit 500 million users, Gizmodo and a Twitter user, Chris Olson spotted something dark on his laptop, really dark.
Can you see the dark object?
Apparently, Mark Zuckerberg tries to fend off hackers with pieces of tape on his webcam and audio jack. Why a tape? Simple, there is nothing to hack if nothing can be seen or heard. In case you are skeptical about the need to protect the audio jack, let me explain a bit, the audio jack is another access point to his machine, allowing bi-directional communication hence the reason it needs to be protected from hackers.
For an average Jack, this is too much, but what if I told you that there are sites for unsecured webcams that will allow other people get access to what you do just for the fun of it.
Is he paranoid as Gizmodo pointed? I don’t think so. With the recent hacks we have had, it is only sensible for someone as important as Mark to go an extra mile in protecting his privacy.
The only thing I can’t seem to get past is his dadada password. ?
