‘Surrounded’ In Ways We Never Imagined

WikileaksThe Vault7 Wikileaks release confirms just how ‘Out Of Control’ the Controllers have become. These stunning disclosures leave us both saddened by the confirmation of the erosion of all of our freedom and privacy, and frustrated as to how to cope with the realities brought forth by the Vault7 disclosures.

Are ‘We The People’ really that interesting to the Controllers that our intimate privacy in our homes interests them? Obviously they have ‘no shame’ whatsoever. What the heck happened to our ‘Right Of Quite Enjoyment’ that runs with both leasehold and fee simple estates?

The citizen/taxpayers of this nation are not a ‘herd of cattle’ or ‘caged zoo animals’ on display for their amusement, we deserve way better from those who are supported by our tax roll.

In a recent article by Mikael Thalen he offers this perspective on this horrendous offense;

Surrounded“CIA Turned Samsung Smart TVs into Listening Devices, WikiLeaks Dump Reveals Weeping Angel” malware activates microphone while TV appears off.

Hackers within the Central Intelligence Agency have developed malware which can turn Samsung Smart TVs into listening devices, leaked documents published by WikiLeaks Tuesday reveal.

The malware, coined “Weeping Angel” – released as part of WikiLeaks’ “Vault 7” data dump – appears to have been created during a 2014 joint workshop with Britain’s equivalent spy agency MI5.

The attack, which seems to require physical access to the TV and an infected USB drive, enables a “Fake-Off mode” that allows the microphone to be accessed even after the TV has been seemingly turned off. The malware also suppresses the TV’s LED lights, removing any suspicion that the device is still active.

Weeping Angel can also reportedly extract usernames, passwords and Wi-Fi keys – allowing access to the target’s network and other connected devices.

The tool appears to be under active development,” security researcher Matthew Hickey told Forbes. “The capabilities it boasts cannot currently capture video, according to the leaked docs.

But that is a goal of the project. It can record audio but it does not stream it in real-time to the CIA. Instead it copies it off the TV as files.”

The big question is What The Heck To Do About This?
