FBI Expands Cyber Spying Tools Using Hacker Tactics

The FBI has expanded its range of cyber spying tools. Now it is employing the methods of hackers to gain access to private information about individuals like it can now remotely activate Android microphones to record conversations.

The PRISM scandal and Snowden’s revelations about the NSA snooping around in private matters were a little upsetting for the gullible public. But it was just the tip of the iceberg! Big government has tentacles that penetrate deep into the structure of the laity. The cyber spying efforts of the government have gone way overboard.

Recent reports from the Def Con Hacking Conference held in Las Vegas showed that the FBI is light years ahead of both the NSA and PRISM. The bureaucrats sitting in the FBI’s command centers may routinely turn on a microphone in their computers and eavesdrop on unsuspecting people having conversations. Meanwhile, hackers seem to have developed such extreme cyber devices that they can break and enter smart phones and personal computers with relative ease.

The FBI seems to have a virtual monopoly over these covert tactics. It can even manipulate Android and laptop microphones from a distance. The FBI has been notorious for planting bugs on everyone from common criminals to the nation’s chief administrators. The fact that someone somewhere may be listening in to your conversation is a bit eerie if not downright strange.


The game the FBI is playing is even craftier than the hackers. The three main categories it is known to infiltrate through cyber spying are: terrorism, child pornography and the criminal underworld. Yet to just know that whenever you talk with someone on your iPhone, each and every word of yours is being recorded is enough to make anyone anxious and apprehensive.
