Considering the endless warnings we get about our internet connected devices and how easily they can be hacked or used to watch us, this one shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Data dumps from WikiLeaks recently revealed that the CIA can get direct knowledge of the going-ons of our living rooms, all through our internet-connected televisions. But it’s not just our government that can gain access to our TV watch list; flaws found in Samsung’s smart television programs revealed hackers had the ability to access and turn on the built-in cameras of televisions from remote places. It might seem like another piece of technology hackers could be using to watch you, but think about the private conversations and activities you and your family might be having right in your family room you wouldn’t watch others watching.
