Hackers within the Central Intelligence Agency have developed malware which can turn Samsung Smart TVs into listening devices, leaked documents published by WikiLeaks Tuesday reveal.

The malware, coined “Weeping Angel” – released as part of WikiLeaks’ “Vault 7” data dump – appears to have been created during a 2014 joint workshop with Britain’s equivalent spy agency MI5.

The attack, which seems to require physical access to the TV and an infected USB drive, enables a “Fake-Off mode” that allows the microphone to be accessed remotely even after the TV has been seemingly turned off. The malware also suppresses the TV’s LED lights, removing any suspicion that the device is still active.

Weeping Angel can also reportedly extract usernames, passwords and Wi-Fi keys – allowing access to the target’s network and other connected devices.

    The Russians were not the only ones spying on their own people, Our NSA has also been doing it even though they were told to stop. Now the CIA is doing it through cell phones and family TV’s. Looks like Orwells’ Big Brother has become a modern reality.

    The CIA is an extension of the NSA and both need to be completely eliminated and all of the top officials down to the janitors should be put on trial for treason against the American People and every last one should be hanged…….This would be a great start eliminating the DEEP STATE……

    As with most things contaminated by communist/liberals, the label is the opposite of reality.
    Smart TV = Dumb spying device
    Smart Meter = Dumb cancer radiating, privacy invasive, fire hazard device
