What????!!! Your favorite idiot box spying on you?  That’s insane. Well its seems sane enough after, WIKILEAKS on Tuesday released thousands of documents that it said described sophisticated software tools used by the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) to break into smartphones, computers and even Internet-connected televisions.

The increasing sophistication of surveillance techniques is scary , Weeping Angel", developed by the CIA's Embedded Devices Branch (EDB), which infests smart TVs, transforming them into covert microphones, is surely its most emblematic realization-  Wikileaks

The CIA has publicly accused the whistle-blowing website of "jeopardizing US personnel and operations" and accused the organization of helping adversaries of the United States.

The revelation is chilling. Imagine all the times you’re watching, “Arrow” and jealous of amazing gizmos on the shows or every time you tune in for “Suits”, fantasizing about Harvey winning your legal case; you’re actually been spied on!

Russian hackers are reportedly among the possible culprits behind the theft of classified CIA documents that detail secret hacking tools used by the intelligence agency. An agency employee or contractors could also to be to blame, US officials told NBC News, or a combination of all three. 

So next time you’re weeping over one of your beloved character being killed off in “Game of Thrones” (What a shocker!), Weeping Angel could be spying on you!
