The list is hardly earth shattering. Most of it can be determined from 5 minutes sharing a WiFi connection.

Why would anyone assume that this isn't out there?
Right now on my laptop, connected to free wifi... Several windows programs that I don't use EVER have been opened and running, and not by me... I didn't even know I have "windows meeting space", but it has been accessed and opened by someone.
By the way, I am a target, I expect this, and they will never find anything on any of my known computers and other internet accessing devices.
There are so many back doors built into every operating system out there, only a fool would assume that no one could get into their "stuff"
