The spam is older than that. So I wouldn't say it is hacked.

Look at his / her article and the first message in the board.
Webcam in C#: Easiest Way to Capture Images from Your Webcams[^] (costly library with 30 day free trial)

Just saw that there is a second article: Scan Barcode from a Webcam in a WinForm/WPF Application[^] promoting the same library

90% of all other answers [^] were pointing to one of the articles. Additionally are answers to a lot of questions that @Sean-Ewington closed long ago (by the way, the list could use a clean up)

there are 5 or 6 that might actually be useful / have no dodgy links.
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
