US Spy TV Easy To Pick Up
from the want-to-see-what-we're-spying-on-lately? dept
Apparently, US spyplane videos and images are being broadcast via a commercial satellite. This means, anyone (yes, anyone) with a normal satellite TV receiver can apparently retrieve the images as they’re being broadcast. The guy who discovered this has been trying to warn people, but they haven’t really responded. There is, of course, the theory that the US wants people to see these feeds (either as disinformation or as a “we can see you” warning). However, others seem to think that a huge security mistake has been made. Update: The BBC article on this topic makes it sound even worse. They recieved a quote saying nothing important was being shown on the broadcasts – but the BBC looked at the broadcasts themselves and say that’s not true.
