Ghost In The Machine

Really, here’s another reason to get an Xbox One or other such device that has a camera

INDIANAPOLIS (March 26, 2014) — A family claims they are being terrorized by their cable box. For more than a week, personal and harassing messages are showing up on their TVs.

Alana Meeks has no idea who’s behind it.

“This stuff is uncanny. I haven’t heard anything like this in my life,” she said. “He says he’s a stalker.”

Meeks said it started more than a week ago — “he” or someone has taken control of her AT&T cable box and typing messages on two of her TVs.

The family showed us a few. One wrote: ‘ISEEYOUHAHA’. Others even threatened to hurt Alana’s 9-year-old granddaughter, Aniya.

…FOX59 cameras were rolling when it happened again. Whoever was typing knew we were there, too.


“Always on” internet connections to “smart devices” are just a bad idea.

Big Brother doesn’t need yet another entry point.

    You’d think, huh, Leelu?

    You know, that’s ALWAYS what bugged me about Scully, etc., in The XFiles, too (well, besides little green men running by and knocking her over in caves and she’d still deny seeing anything). Somebody takes control of the computer…and no one PULLS IT OUT THE WALL: POWER OR INTERNET CONNECTION.

    Like, DUH.
