Grand Canyon, AZ – A webcam with a microphone went dark while a teenager was masturbating on it last week.
The webcam was in a locked room at the Utah Valley Community College’s webcam club.
The club posted a video to YouTube showing the webcam turning off and then re-on after a few seconds of not being online.
The video shows the webcam still on, but there’s a sound of a webcam door closing behind it.
It’s a common occurrence, but it’s especially rare when you’re trying to get your webcam to turn off and restart.
This is when the webcam becomes an online threat, and it’s something you can do right now to stop it.
The Utah Valley College student was able to get his webcam back online and start using it again, but that’s not the only problem.
His webcam had also been compromised by a man who was able find the webcam and use it to broadcast himself masturbating, according to a report from the Grand Canyon Police Department.
He’s been arrested on multiple charges of voyeurism, computer trespass, and possession of child pornography.
