The exploit is a “serious security breach” that has compromised the privacy of millions of Google Chrome users, according to the programmer, who warns, “as long as Chrome is still running, nothing said next to your computer is private.”
The exploit turns Google Chrome into an “espionage tool,” adds the programmer, noting that the recording function can be activated by the use of sensitive keywords and be passed on “to your friends at the NSA."
The programmer reported the exploit to Google on September 19 last year and was met with assurances that it would be quickly fixed. However...the update was never released to Chrome users, with Google telling the programmer, “Nothing is decided yet."
W\ell, if they wanna see me surfing ATS, youtube, and my latest raid on Star Wars The Old Republic, theyre welcome to look on my computer
What more people should realize is that TPTB are looking to gradually accustom the people to the surveillance state so they accept it as the new normal. From the lukewarm indifference I've seen thusfar, it seems to be working.
You folks should be OUTRAGED that these criminals would have the audacity to spy on your data and eavsdrop on your conversations. What's wrong with you people? How mad would you be if you came home to find a stranger rooting through your belongings, looking through your phone, and digging through your computer files?
You'd be LIVID. And that's exactly what these criminal fascist government is doing to you... EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Are you going to finally stand up and get the courage to do something about it? Or are you just going to roll over and die while these criminals trample the last vestiges of your rights?

Well...they can activate a mic thats set to OFF and still listen. Like a phone even though it is off....they just enable it from their end...and thats been widely discussed here on ATS previously.
Oh. And if you have a webcam? At least turn it off too...and put a piece of heavy tape over the lens . And NOT clear scotch tape!!
