Webcam banner/Single business

Agency: Demner, Merlicek & Bergmann
Client: Tools at Work Hard + Soft Vertriebsges.m.b.H.

Old software can cause a security risk, but most people don't think that they are at risk for cyber attacks. Tools at Work Hard + Soft Vertriebsges.m.b.H. wanted to change this perception and worked with Demner, Merlicek & Bergmann to create a campaign which raised the awareness of how computers can be vulnerable and show their new anti-spyware tool as a solution. The campaign targeted small to medium sized businesses without IT departments. To illustrate the point, they exploited a bug on older versions of Flash, in which a hacker can remotely activate the Webcam without a user's permisison. The campaign featured a banner ad which showed viewers a live image of themselves inside the banner ad with the title, “Unsafest Internet User of the Day!”
