The Vault 7 Wikileak has now become reality and it’s a doozy. In addition to the irony of the Obama administration directly interfering with political elections in other countries via the CIA, the latest release from Julian Assange shows that literally every internet enabled consumer device in Russia was turned into an active microphone.

No, seriously.

It’s an amazing feat and one that shouldn’t go unnoticed, because we suspect that the same surveillance technology has probably been turned on the American people, and even a former Presidential candidate turned President.

Via Zero Hedge:

Among the various techniques profiled by WikiLeaks is “Weeping Angel”, developed by the CIA’s Embedded Devices Branch (EDB), which infests smart TVs, transforming them into covert microphones. After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a ‘Fake-Off’ mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In ‘Fake-Off’ mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.

As Kim Dotcom chimed in on Twitter, “CIA turns Smart TVs, iPhones, gaming consoles and many other consumer gadgets into open microphones” and added ” CIA turned every Microsoft Windows PC in the world into spyware. Can activate backdoors on demand, including via Windows update”

They’re listening… and they’re watching… everything.
