This hack looks fake to me
I was watching this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWVN3Rq4gzw) from CNN. I’m not computer illiterate per se, and went into this video thinking that it would be some basic social engineering hack or something similar to [r/itsaunixsystem](https://www.reddit.com/r/itsaunixsystem/), maybe something to laugh at. At 1:15 the victim opens a website, then clicks on a link. The voice over says “Here’s what the IT guy doesn’t realise, by clicking that link, he’s just given David full access to his computer.” My thought is that this is total BS, as I know of not a single mechanism in a web browser that would allow full remote access just by clicking one link(typically there would be popups to grant permission). Does anyone know of a way this is possible? I suspect it is completely faked as they never show proof of anything to the camera.
