According to the company, the attack can be executed by Flash. Hackers may compel the user to visit a malicious site and make it a few mouse clicks. Despite the fact that such an act, at first glance, it seems innocent, in fact, thanks to these clicks hackers can gain remote access to the microphone and a web camera connected to your computer.
