Living in the 21st century means putting up with the latest technology whether you like it or not. And you probably won’t like how intelligent a bug in Google’s technology has become.
Tal Ater, an Israeli computer security expert, found some disturbing bugs in Google Chrome in September 2013 and kept the information in secret believing Google would fix the bugs. However, Google didn’t do it, so Ater made the findings public by talking about them on his official blog. The computer expert found that a bug in Google Chrome’s voice recognition software may actually lead to the invasion of each Chrome user’s privacy. The bug allows Chrome and any creative hacker to eavesdrop on you and the conversations you lead. The bug prevents the software from switching off even after you’ve closed the voice recognition program. The sound-sensitive software is still working as long as Google Chrome is open and active.
According to Google, they haven’t fixed the bug, because it isn’t a problem and it doesn’t pose any actual threat. Or does it?
