I have found, through the use of a program, THOUSANDS of open doors to companies I have never heard of receiving data from my personal computer that they have not rights to have and guess which some of them were.

Russi a should ban ALL use of those in which a person can do covert work against it for just by using those it opens doorways like of which I have found on a simple home computer.

Do not dismiss the possibility of embedded instructions within logic devices (CPU etc) ....


Very true, I just read an article stating this possibility with microprocessors with embedded code. Nobody from the companies are talking about it.

hahhahaahahaah all those weird dirty private emails you sent were being laughed at somewhere in USA

Brilliant move. It is a major risk. Using facebook or gmail, you are basically handing the enemy all your info. Even for unimportant civilians like myself, it is probably a good idea for everyone to give a long hard think about abandoning all American tech companies & boycott all in future. None of it can be trusted any more.
