Google Glass Flaw Lets Hackers ‘Watch Your Every Move’

A security flaw in an early version of Google’s new Internet-connected glasses could allow hackers to control the device remotely and use its camera to “watch your every move,” according to one developer . In a blog post this week, software developer Jay Freeman said he found a way for hackers to install malicious software on Google Glass to conduct surveillance on its users. Freeman was one of the early Glass adopters selected by Google to test the device before its release to the general public next year. Glass, a head-mounted computer that rests on the user’s face like a pair of eyeglasses, can take photos, translate phrases and offer directions via a small glass cube suspended over the wearer’s right eye. Freeman said hackers can compromise the headset by using a known vulnerability in Google’s Android software, granting them even greater access to users’ privacy than if they had bypassed security on a phone or computer. “They have control over a camera and a microphone that are attached to your head,” he said.

$18 Million Lawsuit Over Meme

The family of a Tennessee man with Down syndrome was devastated when they discovered a photo of their disabled son had spawned a derogatory Internet meme. So to quash the widespread use of the altered image and — hopefully — help others who may be subjected to the offense in the future, Adam Holland’s family filed a $18 million lawsuit last week. The photo of a teenage Holland holding up a piece of his artwork during a class at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center in 2004 did not make waves until last year, when modified versions of the image that included defamatory messages popped up on numerous websites. “It was devastating for this family , emotionally,” Larry Crain, the attorney who represents the Hollands, told Nashville’s WSMV-TV. “He’s a very likable, very presentable young man who I don’t think fully appreciates the hurt that’s been inflicted on him.” Though the family is not aware of exactly how the photo sparked the meme nearly a decade later, the Hollands pinpointed several sites, including the website of Florida radio station WHPT-FM, that allegedly repurposed the photo.
