For those of you who use Google services you can go to this link and log in and see an entire history of anything you've said to Google.

history.google.com...

There are a multitude of control settings you can turn off and on depending upon what you want Google to track or not track. Sundar recently testified to Congress and lied in his testimony.

It doesn't matter if you turn any of the tracking features off...Google still records and tracks everything.

Skype is the culprit. Just search on google. Skype trojan source was made open to public in 2009!
It records skype conversation to mp3 files then deliver them to attackers.
You got skype installed on your smartphone, tablet, laptop? then skype files must've been infected somehow.

The whole conversation point is what really sticks out to me. Somehow whomever is behind this would have to know when you were starting a conversation and when it was over in order to have captured each conversation from start to finish. I can't imagine a software switch that would allow for this kind of recording to take place. A voice activated switch would turn on anytime it detected noise above a certain level. I can't imagine a keyword list which would be comprehensive enough to work either.


A program could be built to activate and listen once "key words" have been voiced. For example, what is the most common word in all languages, or the most common 5 words ?

The OP should Do a statistical study of the content that was captured and listened to and recorded. How many times did the OP use each word, then come back and report those findings to us please.

Another consideration on the time frame, this might not be a real targeting POI situation. It could simply be a random generated trial or beta phase to test the ability or performance of a program such as this.

Research 'alternate data streams', perhaps they were hidden on the old notebook using this feature of ntfs.

No skype on that machine. I avoid skype like the plague just in general, so no way would I ever put that on a machine intentionally.

Good thought though.

I wonder if it has to to with this?

www.microsoft.com...

Maybe your conversations are part of that dataset.

The light bulbs are not listening to you.

Agreed.
It is not the light bulbs.
But your phones, computers and maybe your smart TV box are listening to you.
If what you say is available to Google and Amazon, it is certainly available to whatever government agency that is interested.

When I read this I immediately thought of a Reddit post I read where somebody had the SAME thing happen to them. Here's the post: www.reddit.com...

It happens more then you know, and a lot on phones too. There are programs when installed that have shortcut keys and you could have been triggering the recorder function by pressing a button or buttons. I've been working on computers, tv's,monitors, home and office networks and electronics like audio and video equipment for many, many years and have found this happens a lot. The files are created most of the time on windows and android, I found sound recorder in windows was used as well as "game" recording and having windows thinking Skype is a "game" or when you play a game when on Skype and it tries to record. If you're running windows 10, turn off "game mode" as well as "game bar" and "game captures." Also you could have a event scheduled to open sound recorder and record so check to make sure nothing is going on in your events. I had a few weeks back after a driver update three events from NVIDIA which were turning on my PC because windows 10 defaults to allowing the network port to wake or power the computer on. Check your event timer, also make sure you have no weird computers or phones logged into / saved on your network. For your phone, do you have a jealous partner because if you do or you did* at one point, they can put "invisible" apps on your phone that do this and much much more, can even have it activated by pressing the power on button on the phone. android.gadgethacks.com...

Not a conspiracy, just people or just bad shortcut key mapping and intelligent computers acting unintelligent. My 2cents. Good luck to you!

Forgot to add, NVIDIA experience is also a culprit sometimes too. If you don't make videos or stream I would NEVER install that part of the bundle. Just a bloatware program that causes incompatibility and instability. Also in windows 10, go start>settings(little gear)>Diagnostics and Feedback, turn everything off and set it to basic and delete diagnostic data. To disable completely you have to go into registry, if you want to go that far look it up on youtube.


P.S. Windows 10 users go to start and type "view advanced system settings">click on top tab named "remote" and uncheck "allow remote assistance etc..." and set to NOT allow remote access another way about it for all recent windows users including 8 & 10, can right click on "my computer">properties>Remote tab on top, Win 8 and 10 users click "advanced system settings" on the left part of the window.

P.P.S. Cortona is not good for your privacy, she's always listening unless you turn her off. Which is advisable.

That is freaking CREEPY! OMG.

Now I wonder if mine is recording me


Nothing surprises me anymore in this world, nothing.

Good point. The search string I used for my data files did not include *.wav, so I don't know. I'd need an external keyboard to search the old laptop for those because the "w" and "a" keys are non-functional and the "v" key results in "VFG" being typed.

Well... you can always just use the on-screen keyboard...


Otherwise, pretty scary stuff. Would definitely freak me out. You've already gotten all of the advice that I would have given, but I'd especially be interested in firing that thing up again and using process explorer on it.

Listening through led lightbulbs is absolutely plausible, actually.

Reporting back

I went through my machine with a couple searh programs.
Nothing found.
Not surprised, I run a stripped down win7 with almost no services running.

Let us know if anyone finds the source. The recorded convos in the car are really odd.
Almost sounds like a cellphone is air-gapped to the laptop.

Lol, wait till you hear: you know the way out, you'll have to take the way out. Repeated 3 times at least.

My computer and monitor do not have a camera, and they do not have a microphone. I actually researched to find out if they do. Evidently some monitors have a camera, but mine does not. I also have camera shut off and also microphone, just in case I do someday switch things and forget.

I know a couple of people who got their computers hacked and people were watching and listening to them, so I took measures long ago to deter that. Now my wife has a laptop and a smart phone, both of those can be hacked. My daughter turned off all remote access to the laptops and also turned off the camera. But she could still get hacked. She no longer uses the computer to access financial stuff, she finally learned to use the phone again to check account balances. I kept trying to tell her she can have her computer hacked, but she ignored me till our daughter told her nobody can avoid some hacking, do things to protect yourself, she actually works with internet security as part of her business. Nobody is completely safe. Even the foolproof system she uses was hacked at the server, so she had three days off of work while the big security company researched who was compromised, thankfully she was not, that would have been a nightmare.

Yep......that's scary. Makes you wonder how much they really know. When you take a dump. What you had for supper. What food your dogs eat.

My brother has just suggested that you get a nice white hat hacker available for a small fee from Reddit or the chans and get them to go through your entire system
