    N.S.A. Uses Radio Frequencies to Penetrate Computers

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/15/us...t.html?hp&_r=0

    WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world that allows the United States to conduct surveillance on those machines and can also create a digital highway for launching cyberatta.

    The radio frequency technology has helped solve one of the biggest problems facing American intelligence agencies for years: getting into computers that adversaries, and some American partners, have tried to make impervious to spying or cyberattack. In most cases, the radio frequency hardware must be physically inserted by a spy, a manufacturer or an unwitting user.

    1. Tiny transceivers are built into USB plugs and inserted into target computers. Small circuit boards may be placed in the computers themselves.
    2. The transceivers communicate with a briefcase- size N.S.A. field station, or hidden relay station, up to eight miles away.
    3. The field station communicates back to the N.S.A.’s Remote Operations Center.
    4. It can also transmit malware, including the kind used in attacks against Iran’s nuclear facilities

    You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube but something needs to be done to protect the average citizen from abuse by corporations and our own local, state and federal governments.

    You will probably be able to buy one of the USB cables and receiver/transmitters at Best Buy in a couple of years.

      No way this happens without serious complaints with a republican in the WH. But liberals and their media just don't know what they are supposed to do or believe, so just hope the story vanishes.

        The jokes on them. I assume they are watching me fap, and consider it a biological attack.
