WikiLeaks: Here's how the CIA hacks your phones, TVs and PCs


WikiLeaks: Here's how the CIA hacks your phones, TVs and PCs

The organization released thousands of documents it claims show how the US spy agency can crack open devices from Apple, Samsung, Google and Microsoft.

This is all over the Internet, with all sorts of full length articles that anyone interested would be better served by searching for them.

I, for one, feel that the Wikis are true.

My posting this is along the lines of the massive apathy, and inaction, that followed the previous leaks; I must admit to wondering if anything at all will ever get a significant number of the USA populace to get involved with demanding reforms.

Tech has greatly reduced the need for KGB type secret police personnel. At least part of the lack of response is likely that many citizens feel that the govt is incompetent, and even if they know a good deal about an individual (and there is considerable pessimism that they really do), getting the security forces to make use of that information re arrests and convictions is not going to happen. There is no better example that even with such tech, there doesn't seem to be any better interdiction of drugs coming into the USA than previously.

To a point much of this would be true. The biggest issue though is, how would they be able to use all the information that they've "mined"
