It seems we now live in a world where everyone is free to snoop on everyone else to their heart’s content.
If you connect your computer to the Internet, like billions of people, then you can’t expect any privacy. Or so says a judge in Virginia.
A federal judge for the Eastern District of Virginia has ruled that the user of any computer connected to the Internet should not have an expectation of privacy because computer security is ineffectual at stopping hackers.
So, does that mean we can’t expect privacy in our own homes because burglars can get in if they really try? If so, surely we may just as well just leave our front doors wide open?
