Franklin Zhao and Jason Zhou, security researchers for anti-virus firm AVG, were analyzing the contents of a Trojan they found from a Diablo III forum when a chat window popped up on their screen. It was the hacker, who promptly asked the researchers why they were looking at the malware.

The researchers were taken aback but they went ahead and engaged with the hacker. In the exchange below the researchers told the hacker that they were not aware that the hacker could see what was on their screen. The hacker replied, “I would like to see your face, but what a pity you don’t have a camera.” According to Zhao and Zhou, not only was the hacker telling the truth, they knew that the hacker could do so much more, like control their mouse and monitor their processes.

The two tried to prolong the conversation but the hacker was too smart for that – he ended their hackroulette session by shutting down the researchers’ system. Head to the AVG blog to read the full story.
