Vanessa Feltz, standing in for Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 this morning, was speaking to IT security consultant Greg Martin, who recently recovered his MacBook Pro laptop thanks to free tracking software he had installed. The software takes screenshots via the webcam of the unlawful user for forensic purposes and sends warning updates to the owner.

Couple sue after laptop-trackers capture sexually explicit pictures of woman who was sold stolen device | Mail Online

Staff at Absolute Software were hunting down the thieves who stole a laptop computer when they captured the sexually explicit content of Susan Clements-Jeffrey from Ohio who was using the laptop after it had been posted missing and was unaware that the computer was the subject of an online investigation to track it down by the computer company

A theft recovery agent for Absolute Software, Kyle Magnus, is said to have intercepted emails and electronic communications to and from Mrs Clements-Jeffrey's computer which included naked pictures of the teacher, one of which showed her with her legs apart.


The worker then submitted the images to police, who tracked Clements-Jeffrey down and arrived at her apartment with the pictures.

She was arrested and charged for receiving stolen property but the charges were dismissed a week later.

A judge ruled last week that Mrs Clements-Jeffrey and Smith can sue Absolute Software for violating their privacy
