An article that should make most of us think about Digital Glass. We all think it won’t happen to u because we are too computer savvy, but think again!
Good on you Nate Anderson for writing this piece. It is revealing in every sense of the word!
If you intend to be a Digital Glass user, don’t think this stuff is not possible in the wearable space… it’s just a matter of time.
“”See! That shit keeps popping up on my fucking computer!” says a blond woman as she leans back on a couch, bottle-feeding a baby on her lap.
The woman is visible from thousands of miles away on a hacker’s computer. The hacker has infected her machine with a remote administration tool (RAT) that gives him access to the woman’s screen, to her webcam, to her files, to her microphone. He watches her and the baby through a small control window open on his Windows PC, then he decides to have a little fun. He enters a series of shock and pornographic websites and watches them appear on the woman’s computer.
The woman is startled. “Did it scare you?” she asks someone off camera. A young man steps into the webcam frame. “Yes,” he says. Both stare at the computer in horrified fascination. A picture of old naked men appears in their Web browser, then vanishes as a McAfee security product blocks a “dangerous site.”
“I think someone hacked into our computer,” says the young man.”
