‘Or, if it is intentionally made vulnerable during production as part of an adversarial nation-state campaign, or if the consumer practices poor cyber-hygiene and Information Security.’ As easy as it is for someone to hack, it’s a bit harder to spot when you’re the one being targeted.

Scott, however, said that a major clue is if the little LED light next to your camera is on, even when you’re not using it.
