Don't re-blog it, whatever you do...or you will also be on their watchlist.

The technicalities are beyond many.
As are the practical implications.

Me, I don't have a fancy Samsung TV and I have a flipphone.

Hell, I have a landline.






I still have two cans with a wire!

This IP address is my neighbours one... Honest...!

"Never really appreciated my neighbour much anyway... he's a crap plumber, antisocial and has no clue how to switch a computer on unless it is for Pron..."

And then he calls me to ask how to get rid of the historic before his missus comes home...

The CIA would have a hay day with the poor bloke.

I think there is a bit of cognitive dissonance. They are beginning to grasp the chilling implications of the surveillance/technology (look at what it's done to us politically and to one on one interpersonal relations) but they are addicted to the technology and can't give it up - regardless of the danger.

That's pretty secure. But the bandwidth sucks.

Tell me about it... Over 480 meters of string and the dogs, cats, deer, wild boars and all sorts of other smelly furry wildlife keep getting tangled up in the bloody thing!!

I am still wondering if that electric fencing string was a good idea or should I just stick to plain old Nylon?

Maybe I should switch the electric fencing string on and that will solve the animal problems but maybe lead to artifacts on my landline?

There is very usefull procedure as to how to setup a Baseline Hardened OS (Linux) to use as Listening Post.

If this is good enough for the CIA, it may be good enough against them too.

Apple laughed it off saying everything in vault7 was already patched last update.



Surely Apple are not that stupid. If they are patching the exploits, that means that someone is already working on newer exploits that might not be so secure!

What I am waiting for, is the team behind hands like the Silent Circle Blackphone to turn around and say "not a single exploit affects our handsets."

(this is not an endorsement for the handset, just one I remember from tech press)

It will sink-in over time. Personally, I'm glad to have the CIA doing what they do. They don't talk about it, but I believe the CIA has used domestic spying to thwart terrorists attacks.

Nylon is too stretchy. Dacron, or better yet, that fancy graphite stuff. That's the ticket.

Yes, you are right, especially with a DC current running though it!

Might be a bit hard on those tin cans and ears... Graphite is also out of the question because of conductability issues too so I shall try Dacron as fiber glass covered which also make for a good throat slashing session in case of dogs, cats, deer, wild boars and all sorts of other smelly furry wildlife including CIA operatives that get tangled up...

Don't really care about the CIA operatives as I live in France and fairly untouchable as the dogs, cats, deer, wild boars and all sorts of other smelly furry wildlife will get to them first!

And my missus...

Ok, CIA spy through teqs and social media. Don't we already know this though. And... if ya don't have anything to hide then what's the problem.

I highly doubt they have people spying on every single person 24/7 using these devices and such.

I'm mre concerened with creepy hackers who can hack in take over the webcam or speaker phone on the phones and record/see everything. Or creeps on the internet exploiting children.

Nah. They better come with something better with that leak vault 7 of theirs.

Plenty of problems.

But, on the other hand, to be thinking that no one is listening is pretty naive.

Although this is old news :

America's largest eavesdropping centre in Britain, Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire, is being expanded in a multimillion-pound programme as it becomes increasingly vital to US intelligence and military operations, according to a study of the controversial base released on Thursday.

The base, which plays a key role in the global network of the National Security Agency (NSA), GCHQ's American partner, now includes 33 radomes – commonly called "golf balls" after the white sheeting protecting the satellite receiving and transmission stations – and is undergoing a big construction programme.

The study describes the programme, called Project Phoenix, as "one of the largest and most sophisticated high technology programmes carried out anywhere in the UK over the last 10 years". Work on it has been reserved for US-based arms corporations including Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, and their personnel with high-level security clearance, it notes.

Though the base is officially called RAF Menwith Hill, most of the staff there are US employees of the NSA. The total number of people working there is due to increase from 1,800 last year (of whom 400 were British) to 2,500 in 2015.

Creepy guys in the government doing it is fine, someone else isn't. Got it.

I have had personal experiences with NSA spying, as well as a few other people I know. From what I know, they will listen to tons of people and keep track of what they say over the phone, possibly keylog their computer... it was a long time ago, before Facebook and Smart Phones so I don't know but I'm guessing the NSA can get into those these days. I didn't know the CIA was in the domestic spying business as much...

I live in the Uk and was talking to my old man in Florida about shootings, bombings, terrorists, man we must have dropped the whole playbook on the wire. Not on purpose mind you, but the old man is 76 and likes to rant! Anyway, you could hear the clicks and whirrs going crazy in my ear, and then the line went dead, but you could hear someone. It was eerie. I have flown since so I didnt make the no-fly list, but who knows....the NSA hacks have been busted spying on exes's so who's to say that if you protest something that all of a sudden, your whole porn collection gets exposed, or worse, someone dumps kiddie porn on your hardrive, and then the cops conveniently show up?

If it can happen so a presidential nominee, then NOBODY is immune.

BTW, you cant go wrong with smoke signals. You could live stream it on your samsung phone even.
