Quote from: Caruthers612 on January 30, 2017, 05:39:09 PM So I know "they" can remotely turn on or hijack the mic in my Android phone, or my laptop (I think), and listen to me, and recently it's occurred to me there might be an app to prevent this. Or at least to make them eat static when they do so. Anyone know of any such technology? I don't want the NSA to hear me commenting on the nice thighs of Japanese girls, that's strictly my business.
Quote from: Ciardelo on January 30, 2017, 06:10:32 PMTune in, turn off, drop out man.There might be some sort of "app" for that but unless you devote your time to really study security, you're probably screwed. I took a Cisco networking class "way back when" which included a tour of one of the phone company switching offices. Even then, "way back then" there were cables going into a locked, secure area for government use. So you have to commit, use VPN and encryption point-to-point.Are you ready to train all your friends and neighbors so they can "talk" to you? Have you looked at MV's VPN options up there? ^^^^At the very least, put tape on your cameras.
Quote from: Ciardelo on January 30, 2017, 06:47:14 PMNot a joke. If you want personal communications to remain private, even if it's just recipes or something...if you really want no prying eyes your friends and neighbors need to become trained in security as you are. So your sister Sally wants to share her recipe for peach cobbler, but you don't want prying eyes, she is going to have to effectively encrypt and tunnel that recipe to you. ALL your communications need encryption, right?4th of July pictures? Same deal. Pictures of your niece Sharon's wedding? Same deal.I guess I'm saying YOU need to decide how "compartmentalized" your world needs to be. If people you need to talk to privately don't know how to do it, it's up to you to train them.

Quote from: Caruthers612 on January 31, 2017, 10:21:33 AM Ironically, this is along the lines of what I was thinking about, an app which, when some remote third party turns on your mic and starts listening to you, starts pumping in either white noise or really bad music (Justin, Miley, I'm looking at you.) While a fun thought, I am of course being serious. Is there no way to prevent someone from listening to you through your mic? Does Nord help you at all in this instance?
Quote from: Ciardelo on January 31, 2017, 10:39:00 AMBUT you did bring up an interesting point about the time when a message "drops down" from the internet provider...that point could be a problem...because you can't trust your provider to not be snooping on you.So encryption protects against that. Even if "they" get the message, it will just be gobbly-gook. The VPN protects you from casual snooping because somebody looking at your traffic can't see what you are doing. But you are trusting your VPN provider as well because they can see where you are going and who you contact.
Quote from: Caruthers612 on January 31, 2017, 01:35:21 PM OK, since we failed with the first attempt, here's another effort...What I would like to start with is this: If one of you understands in detail how a third party, like the NSA, can activate and take control of the microphone in your cell phone, laptop or other device and listen to you with it, I'd be grateful for an explanation. A simple one please 'cause I'm a 'tard and all that.
Quote from: Ciardelo on January 31, 2017, 02:15:24 PMI'll come back for one last point...Some people pose questions about security like they are afraid of being hacked, whereas they want to be the hackers. It's kind of a "reverse" way of trying to find out information they think in their clever little 'tard minds... I'm not saying Caruthers612 wants to hack his niece Sharon's phone, but I'm just sayin' that some 'tards do shit like that. Especially 'tards that want the easy answers...like a script or something.People that are truly interested in security don't usually go off in a huff and create a new thread just because they didn't quite get the answer they wanted...people interested in learning will tolerate a little "around the bush" so-to-speak...speaking of bushes...I wonder if the carpets match the drapes on ol' Sharon there eh? eh? eh?:wink: :wink: :nudge: :nudge:
