Computer Expert recovers laptops 2,000 miles away

Computer expert David Duffy hacked his way into a laptop stolen 2000 miles away and used the built-in camera to help identify the suspected thief.

Two Apple MacBooks were stolen from a holiday home in Tenerife. The owner had considered them lost until computer expert David Duffy discovered that one of the laptops were online.

By using remote control software, Duffy was able to gain control of the laptop and click an image of the thief using the laptop's webcam.

He handed over the image to the police who knew the thief, arrested him and recovered the two laptops.
