Any computer running the Chrome browser can be subverted to eavesdrop on conversations happening around it, claims a developer.

El Reg knows of at least one surefire way for Chrome users to be sure they're not being listened in on. From the main menu, choose Settings, click "Show advanced settings...", click Content Settings, then scroll down and select "Do not allow sites to access my camera and microphone." Problem solved.
