    What is Vault 7?

    Julian Assange claims that documents are the most comprehensive CIA release ever and are far larger than the Snowden files.

    A massive trove of documents, detailing how the CIA hacks into electronic devices to spy on the world's citizens, has been published online by WikiLeaks.

    It contains evidence that the CIA has been building its own "fleet of hackers" since 2001, and that these hackers have been developing cyber weapons in order to spy on people around the world, through their own phones, computers and smart TVs.

    Some of these cyber weapons allow CIA operatives to turn on the microphone remotely, transforming them into covert spying machines.

    How do you feel about being spied on in such a way? Have they a right to invade your living room to listen in to your family's banter via your new smart TV's Mic, in the name of security?

    A bit like China then


    You really think the CIA are interested in what is happening on an average night in my living room.

    Joycon sounds like plastic filth. Must be that time of night. Wonder if it would work with iCon?

    Tape over your webcams and there's nothing interesting to hear anyway, also turn things off your not using its wasting electricity, so they can sit and listen in to you watching Tv thus you are not saying anything, the same if you using a pc etc

    I do believe that governments can listen though our devices but the CIA I doubt they would be listening in on every device in every home around the world in every country imagine the man power in that. In the uk it's more likely GCHQ would be listening. In America the CIA maybe FBI but even that would only be know targets the CIA would target outside America but only of people of importance or know terrorist links. Keywords is what's picked up so all in this thread is fu#%^*d now as to many key words used.

    Haha true, but hardly think they would waste their time spying on any of us lot.

    Unless the IS or IRA have recently taken an interest in keeping tabs on the latest deals.

    Terrorist 1: Any deals on cheap peroxide or chapiti flour?
    Terrorist 2:. Nope, but there's a cracking deal on Cadburys cream eggs at Aldi!
    Terrorist 1: Grab me some whilst your at it mate

    I dont think manpower comes into it though, just look how far voice recognition has come along, and the likes of amazon echo and Siri really are something to. Behold.

    Well if thats considered advanced tech we the public can buy, what do you think the security services are using now a days?, I full well expect they can monitor large portions of the population at a time!.

    moving in waves, their super computers monitoring 100's of thousands of devices at once, scanning for key words and building up a profile of them over time, when that profile fills with these key words, and probably whole sentences can be profiled by this advanced tech,thats when a flag, will rise alerting the human security ofiicer to take a look closer at YOU! , Man theyr bots are probably reading this thread right now!

    They have absolutely no interest in watching Joe blogs watch Netflix with his wife each night. They are a security agency. If somebody asked me to find out what details on a suspect one of my first thoughts would be can we track his phone and security cameras. After security cameras then anything else with a camera. Of course they have looked into this and I'm sure they have used it before but I doubt they have tuned in to my house to watch the dogs sleep all day.

    Even if your mobile phone is not switched on it can still be listened into

    the only way to stop this is by taking the battery out

    Like the manpower it would take to record and listen to every single phone call,text message,email,down to internet click.
    Amongst others look at Operation PRISM,Xkeyscore,Tempoara and these are the ones we know about from Snowden etc

    Yes I'm aware of all this that's why I said it picks keywords but man power is still massive just look at the size of GCHQ or NSA like I said I do believe they can listen when and if they want to but man power still comes into it. Most modern companies keep all data on servers for a certain amount of time too so intelligent services rely on that too. Try something tonight if you got Facebook and a smart phone leave it by the TV with a foreign language on over night in the morning pick the phone up look at Facebook the chances are you will have adverts in a foreign language. The phone is listening all the time with out people realising.
