CIA is recording everything people do in United States



The publication by WikiLeaks of documents it says are from the CIA's secret hacking program describe tools that can spy on every citizen of the United States and turn, camera- and microphone-equipped devices into eavesdroppers. Smart televisions and automobiles now have on-board computers and microphones, joining the ubiquitous smartphones, laptops and tablets that have had microphones and cameras as standard equipment for a decade. That the CIA has created tools to turn them into listening posts surprises no one in the security community. 
WHAT TO DO? Keep all your operating systems patched and up-to-date, and don't click links or open email attachments unless you are sure they are safe. To ensure a connected device can't spy on you, unplug it from the grid and the internet and remove the batteries, if that's possible.
