Spyware app turns the privacy tables on Google Glass wearers

Spyware app turns the privacy tables on Google Glass wearers | Global Drug War | Scoop.it

Critics of Google Glass usually remark on how the device allows its owner to take photos and videos of other people without their knowledge or consent, which has contributed to some backlash, including bans on Glass in some establishments and an alleged assault on a Glass user.

.

 

But a spyware app developed by two researchers has shown that Google Glass can be used to secretly take photos of whatever a Glass wearer is looking at without their knowledge - making the Glass user the one whose privacy and security is potentially compromised.

.

The lens display usually lights up whenever Glass is in use, which is the only way to tell when Glass is on - other than witnessing voice and gesture commands used by the wearer such as "Okay Glass, take a photo."

.

However, according to media reports, the app takes a photo every 10 seconds when the display is off, meaning the wearer (or anyone in view of the camera) is unaware that it's recording.

Three men who abducted a vulnerable 13-year-old girl from the streets of London and forced her to become their sex slave have been jailed.

The girl, who was described as being from a broken and troubled family, was subjected to sexual abuse over four days after being persuaded to travel with the men to Ipswich in Suffolk in July last year.

Mohammed Sheikh, Hamza Ali and Suran Uddin were all convicted of trafficking and sex offences following a trial.

Interesting flier giving out facts about the War on Drugs in the United States.  Many of these were facts that i was actually unaware of.  I had no idea how much money had been spent on the drug crisis, or that the cost of the drugs had been going down since the War on Drugs started.  I was also surprised about the United States being the worlds largest consumer of illegal drugs.  Interesting peice that shows how some people feel about drugs being illegal in the United States.
