Right now, the only way malware or any other chunk of computer code can get from one machine to the other is through wires of some sort. But scientists in Germany have discovered they could transmit small amounts of data small distances through empty air using high pitched inaudible sound waves. This experiment can be used to get a step ahead of future hackers who might be able to exploit your computer’s built-in microphone and speakers to receive and transmit data without plugging anything up to anything else.

Everyone can go home now, Amazon just won.
US intelligence afraid Edward Snowden has a super bad “doomsday cache” of information in case he’s caught or killed
It sounds like a plot twist out of Hollywood, but US intelligence peoples are terrified that ex NSA contractor Edward Snowden may have, probably has, some sort of “doomsday cache” of incredibly damaging information as an insurance policy against being injured, captured or killed, Its something that people in Snowden’s position often threaten, but considering Snowden seems to have one batch of information after the other, it seems likely he might have something like this somewhere.
Earlier this year, LG had to come out and say that they weren’t collecting and transmitting data on your TV and internet usage, but that might be total bullshit.
A second blogger has published evidence that his LG-manufactured smart television is sharing sensitive user data with the Korea-based company in a post that offers support for the theory that the snooping isn’t isolated behavior that affects a small number of sets. In addition to transmitting a list of shows being watched and the names of files contained on USB drives, the Internet-connected TV also sent the names of files shared on home or office networks, the blogger reported. He made the discovery after plugging the Wireshark packet-sniffing program into his home network and noticing that an LG TV—model number 42ls570, purchased in April—was transmitting file names that sounded vaguely familiar even though there was no USB drive plugged in.
