    From 2009, but still relevant today. I'm wondering is that the reason for those pesky power blackouts? I think so :'(

    holy sht !, thats the answer to the next level , hell i should consider building my house into an complete faraday cage , lols , but a very interesting post , ive heard about electric signals leaking into the ground power supply but never thought that "data" would be of any use once received , same going for laptops running on battery , so its either a portable faraday cage , lols , or completely ripping out any whire in your laptop or pc to then shield all of them and reinstall , hmmmm....wonder if theres such a service that does cable shielding for all electrical appliances and media devices

    Dayum... that is shady. Almost like your keystrokes giving off a Morse Code type signal that can be picked up.

    Yet more examples of why the only truly safe state a computer/network can exist in is unplugged.
