Re: Software on rented PCs can spy on you
It's not up to the manufacturers to prevent improper use of computer...as mentioned, it also had a key logger and obviously it used the wireless adaptor to send off information (including screen shots that would be unrelated to the webcam). The main culprit is Aaron's for putting this software on the computer, and the software company for selling this software for this type of use.
Even if the manufacturer was to make a physical covering for the laptop's webcam, Aaron's still would have got info. So, maybe make the keyboard useless and the internet useless, then they'd be safe.

I agree with you. The person responsible should be the person providing the system and if that person claims they can't scrutinize each system when they come back, they should take it to a place that can simply reimage it after every use.
