We spy with our everwatchful eye.....

Researchers from the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center have developed malicious software that can remotely seize control of the camera on an infected smartphone and employ it to spy on the phone’s user.
The malware, dubbed “PlaceRaider,” “allows remote hackers to reconstruct rich, three-dimensional models of the smartphone owner’s personal indoor spaces through completely opportunistic use of the camera,” the researchers said in a study published last week.
The program uses images from the camera and positional information from the smartphone’s gyroscopic and other sensors to map spaces the phone’s user spends a lot of time in, such as a home or office.

Huh. If the motherfuckers ever hack into my phone all they'll see is the inside of my back pocket or the roof of my truck, maybe a bird's eye view (literally) of it flying through the air when I'm dealing with somebody's customer service.

Huh, I just read a "fictional" book that mentioned this very ability. Scary. But I bet they developed it to spy on all the bimbos taking Mirror pics of themselves.

The Navy developed it hah?

I use two-sided tape to secure my phone to the under side of my toilet lid.

So that way either a homo ensign Naval Academy dude or a female nympho 3rd class petty officer will have the pleasure to see my 9 inch one-eyed pocket mouse sending out a bright yellow stream of Coors lite after it was distilled through my kidneys.

Well since my pay was cut, all they would see from me is my machine at work. It was designed in the 50's, so maybe they will learn something about history .......
