Symantec Video: Using Backdoor.Ghostnet Toolkit for Attacks

Once the exe is built using Backdoor.Ghostnet and installed on the victim computer, it can be controlled using the toolkit built into Backdoor.Ghostnet. One of the tricks being used by attackers is to view the webcams of the victim computers and view the users actually sitting in front of their keyboards. Rather creepy. It doesn't appear there is anything keeping the attacker from turning on the victim computers built-in microphones as well.
