Cable Box Terrorizing Family
Sounds to me like it’s the next Stephen King movie, “The Cable Box.”
The Morning Sideshow learned apparently a cable box is stalking an Indianapolis family, how weird is that?
Personal and harassing messages have been creeping up on their TV screen. Alana Meeks believes someone has hacked into their AT&T cable box and leaving messages that say things like, “ISEEYOUHAHA.”
Research Director for the Indiana University Center for Applied Cybersecurity, Fred Cate is saying there aren’t many ways one can get into someone’s cable box. Cate stated,“The most common ways would be using a remote control, an infrared device, but that’s line of sight. You usually have to be in the room or within a close distance and clear vision to the box you’re changing the channel on or doing the typing on.”
Currently AT&T is working trying to find the cause and fix the situation.
Does your technology hate you?
