How a Computer Repairman Took Photos of His Customers in the Shower

Worried your computer repairman is a pervert? Here's a handy guide: If the software he installs suggests that take your laptop to the bathroom when you shower, he's probably using remote-controlled software to take pictures of you naked.

That's what Trevor Harwell, 20, of Fullterton, Calif. is accused of, at least. According to cops, Harwell took "hundreds of thousands" of pictures of women whose Macs he repaired , and used some very, uh, sneaky methods:

The lurid repair ploy first came to light last summer when a Fullerton resident contacted police about suspicious messages appearing on his daughter's computer, Goodrich said.

One message mimicked the appearance of a system message and read: "You should fix your internal sensor soon. If unsure what to do, try putting your laptop near hot steam for several minutes to clean the sensor."

Anthony Weiner must be so bummed that this story is coming out now, instead of two weeks ago. If Harwell serviced your laptop in the last couple years, you should check the "WebServer Documents" folder in the Library—that's where the photos would have been stored. And, everyone, computers don't ever want to be near hot steam. Ever!
