Your Electronics Are Spying On You!

Kellyanne Conway Is Right: Your Microwave Is Spying on You | MSM Owe Her An Apology
Published on Mar 14, 2017
From 2012, exactly five years ago tomorrow, CIA director David Petraeus has said that the rise of new “smart” gadgets means that Americans are effectively bugging their own homes, saving US spy agencies a job when it identifies any “persons of interest”.
Speaking at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s technology investment operation, Petraeus made the comments when discussing new technologies which aim to add processors and web connections to previously ‘dumb’ home appliances such as fridges, ovens and lighting systems.
Wired reports the details via its Danger Room Blog [2]: “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,” Petraeus enthused, “particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft.”
“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Petraeus said. 
Petraeus also stated that such devices within the home “change our notions of secrecy." His comments come in the same week that one of the biggest microchip companies in the world, ARM, unveiled new processors that are designed to give practically every household appliance an internet connection [3], in order that they can be remote controlled and operate in tandem with applications.
ARM describes the concept as an “internet of things." Where will all the information from such devices be sent and analyzed? It can be no coincidence that the NSA is currently building a monolithic heavily fortified $2 billion facility [4] deep in the Utah desert and surrounded by mountains. The facility is set to go fully live in September 2013.
“The Utah data center is the centerpiece of the Global Information Grid, a military project that will handle yottabytes of data, an amount so huge that there is no other data unit after it.” reports Gizmodo.
Wired reports [5] that the incoming data is being mined by plugging into telecommunications companies’ switches, essentially the same method the NSA infamously uses for warrantless wiretapping of domestic communications [6], as exposed six years ago.
Former intelligence analyst turned best selling author James Bamford, has penned a lengthy piece [7] on the NSA facility and warns “It is, in some measure, the realization of the ‘total information awareness’ program created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy.”

WikiLeaks: CIA Can Spy Through Smart TVs, Control Cars
Secular Talk
Published on Mar 9, 2017

It’s difficult to buy a new TV that doesn’t come with a suite of (generally mediocre) “smart” software, giving your home theater some of the functions typically found in phones and tablets. But bringing these extra features into your living room means bringing a microphone, too — a fact the CIA is exploiting, according to a new trove of documents released today by WikiLeaks...

The NSA is Spying on 70 Percent of World’s Mobile Networks
By Anne-Marie Jackson
Dec 7, 2014
A new report from The Intercept shows that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has been eavesdropping about 70 percent of world’s mobile phone networks through a secret program called Auroragold for several years now. Auroragold managed to exploit security breaches and even insert new ones into various cellular networks to help NSA illicitly listen in on phone calls and text messages.
The infos come from a former NSA contractor, Edward Snowden, who in June 2013 made public thousands of classified NSA documents on several social networks and websites. Last year, journalists Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald met Snowden in Hong Kong who revealed them more classified information about NSA spying techniques. The two occasionally publish these data in their on-line publication, The Intercept, and track public and governmental reactions.
Snowden was sentenced by the US Department of Justice to 30 years in prison for violating the US Espionage Act and theft of government property and now temporary lives in Russia.
According to the latest report from The Intercept, NSA’s Auroragold program has been ceaselessly spying more than 1.200 e-mail accounts and communications made through dozens of mobile phone networks across the globe for the last few years.
One of NSA’s main targets was GSM Association (GSMA), an association of mobile operators headquartered in the UK that counts among its members some of the world’s largest telephony operators and IT companies, such as AT&T, Vodafone, Cisco, Samsung and Microsoft. GSMA helps these companies to better implement new technologies and enhance cellular network security across the world.
The Intercept report revealed that NSA showed a great interest in GSMA’s documentation on roaming technology that allows mobile phone users calling home when traveling abroad. NSA particularly spied on GSMA’s encryption protocols and new roaming technologies.
Such disclosures have already put NSA in a bad light for both public and foreign intelligence agencies. So, NSA would not confirm the latest leaks.
Vanee Vines, spokesperson for the US agency, recently said in an e-mail that NSA operates within the law and it adheres to a presidential mandate in its “attention to everyday means of communication” in a commitment to a secure, open and interoperable global Internet.
“Terrorists, weapons proliferators, and other foreign targets often rely on the same means of communication as ordinary people. In order to anticipate and understand evolving threats to our citizens and our allies, NSA works to identify and report on the communications of valid foreign targets,”
Vines has also said.
According to the Intercept report, NSA has been collected information through 70 percent of worldwide cell phone networks including those in Middle East,  China, and Northern Africa. Surprisingly, the US was not among NSA’s top targets of network espionage.

Anna grew up on a steady diet of 20th century literature, science-fiction movies and Viking lore. Unsurprisingly she turned into a technology geek with an inclination for history & fantasy.
