    An anonymous hacker from the Russian image board Dvach is spreading panic across the Russian Internet by hacking into the webcams of other online users and broadcasting their videos.

    By taking control of their webcams, the hacker can see everything happening behind the camera without people knowing it.

    The hacker even created a separate channel, where after paying money internet users can ask the man to hack into anybody's computer. The unknown hacker uses the LuminosityLink remote network administration system.

    Besides broadcasting videos from webcams, the hacker also pranks people by putting up music and random video clips (mostly porn) on their computers.

    A lot of folks don't know how to avoid being hacked by the mysterious cyberstalker. Believing it is an online virus, they try to scan their computers for viruses, but in vain.

    His actions aren't legal and some people who became victims of the hacker have already contacted police, but the hacker is yet to be tracked down.
