Is Your Tv Spying On You?

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2513592/Is-TV-spying-YOU.html

It sounds like science fiction but many new TVs can watch you - telling advertisers your favourite shows or even filming you on the sofa. And there's no off switch!

..

Last week, there was a high-profile case in point. An IT consultant called Jason Huntley, who lives in a village near Hull, uncovered evidence that a flat-screen television, which had been sitting in his living room since the summer, was secretly invading his family’s privacy.

He began investigating the £400 LG device after noticing that its home screen appeared to be showing him ‘targeted’ adverts — for cars, and Knorr stock cubes — based on programmes he’d just been watching.

Huntley decided to monitor information that the so-called smart TV — which connects to the internet — was sending and receiving. He did this by using his laptop effectively as a bridge between his television and the internet receiver, so the laptop was able to show all the data being sucked out of his set.

He soon discovered that details of not just every show he watched but every button he pressed on his remote control were being sent back to LG’s corporate headquarters in South Korea.

Can't wait for HD camera's to become standard. Got home from work, slap a bit of pron on and spank one of whilst knowing some Korean is watching it all....

Still at least it's not like it's all heading towards 1984!

And Scottish 'independence'. They don't want to live amongst the riffraff!
