Since Snowden's revelation I don't plug in my internet till the computer finishes booting upSubmitted by meekandmild on Sat, 08/09/2014 - 12:11
and I unplug internet connection before shutting down.
Is it possible that NSA or others are flash downloading info from my computer during start up and shutdown? I don't have anything to hide, but I got private information I prefer not to be known to government and others.
I know anytime my computer is "online" that information from my computer can be downloaded. but with firewalls and other programs I can maybe see if this is happening.
There has also been several threads that states others can see and hear you if your computer has a webcam and microphone.
