The goal of this paper is to devise a method for regular users to reliably identify IoT devices that 1) are equipped with a microphone, and 2) send recorded audio from the user's home to external services without the user's awareness. If LeakyPick can identify which network packets contain audio recordings, it can then inform the user which devices are sending audio to the cloud, as the source of network packets can be identified by hardware network addresses. This provides a way to identify both unintentional transmissions of audio to the cloud, as well as above-mentioned attacks, where adversaries seek to invoke specific actions by injecting audio into the device's environment. … [Read more...] about This device keeps Alexa and other voice assistants from snooping on you

New Delhi: In April 2020, the New England Rate-payers Association (NERA) filed a Petition  to roll-back all ‘solar net-metering’ schemes in the US. In this petition, NERA put forward major issues regarding the financial viability of power distribution utilities and questioned their applicability to achieve carbon reduction goals, impact (of net-metering) on the reliability of bulk power system, jurisdiction over sales of excess energy, and the accounting methods related to net-metering. Furthermore, NERA described net-metering as "Robinhood-in-reverse" in terms of consumer benefits and compensation.Considering this petition as a threat to the renewable energy industry, more than 450 organizations, 57,000 individuals, and 37 states opposed this petition . This petition was ultimately rejected stating that it has failed to explain the cross-subsidization impact on the end-use consumers and that it has given some concrete arguments against the jurisdiction of the Federal … [Read more...] about OPINION: Net-metering of electricity – time for a re-think?
