Security alert over Samsung's Smart TV as hackers claim they can access its hard drive and seize control of built-in cameras

Security experts reveal they have been able to gain access to the device and scour its hard drives and connected drives for information
They claim to have 'complete root access' allowing them to install malicious software that could monitor its cameras and microphones
More and more devices that connect to the Internet are leaving unwitting consumers vulnerable to such hacking attacks

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Several years ago I told some people just wait they'll be watching you or listening to your conversation through your TV and they thought I was an idiot or conspiracy theorist.

I don't know if my TV is watching me (it's a dumb TV with no camera or mics so not likely), but I'm paranoid enough to keep the web cam on my laptop and desktop covered up with black tape when I'm not Skypeing.

If it is I expect to be cancelled any day now. I'm rather dull.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
