Steve King warns that social media, apps, smart devices, etc. are collecting data and invading our privacy. Is your TV in the “Fake Off” mode? LifeZette has the story:
As we saw in the WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 dump, the CIA’s malware known as “Weeping Angel” places the target television in a “Fake Off” mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In “Fake Off” mode, the TV operates as a “wiretap,” recording conversations in the room and streaming them back to the CIA.
But as worried as you may be right now, the future will be far more frightening.
