Recently this website hit the headlines in relation to another scandal — 2ch users arranged a cyberbulling campaign against Russian porn actresses.
This time the public eye is focused on a thread of an anonymous user, who hacked computers of hundreds users in a variety of countries and streamed live video from them on You Tube.
The anonymous user turned these sessions into a real online show.
For example when a handful of victims approached their computers, he opened up a pornographic video in the browser right when they came close to their devices.
The creepy website was closed but the problem did not go away.
Last year users of the Russian humor site Pikabu started exploring the world through someone else’s webcam.
But in the most recent incident the scenario was completely different.
2ch (or ‘Dvach’) is an anonymous website, popular among Internet trolls, moral and justice crusaders, people with ‘alternative’ sense of humor, young hackers — a variety of individuals actually, from all walks of life.
A Russian website is collecting live footage from homes and businesses across the world and posting it online.
For several days (starting on April 26) 2ch users have been enjoying the possibility to spy on unsuspecting people, discuss their manners, appearance and room decorations.
The hacker has several tricks, which he uses to entertain viewers during the stream.
Yesterday one of 2ch’s users attracted the attention of Russian media.
This man streamed video from the hacked computers on You Tube.
