So the other day when I was on my computer my webcam light turned on. I thought that was a bit odd since I did not have the web cam program open. I've covered the cam up since, but now I'm freaked out! I have a full antivirus system on my computer, so what is the likely hood that someone hacked into my laptop?

Antivirus software is designed to work against viruses, not hackers, and the Windows standard firewall is a joke. It's always smart to cover the lens of your webcam when it's not in use, if only to protect the lens from dust and spillage.1
