I’d be less concerned about this than the same scenario on a smartphone.

Anything with video and audio recording capability that is connected to the internet can be taken over and used maliciously. Some devices are more difficult to access without authorization than others, but it’s possible with all of them. Add in GPS and you have tracking of movement and location in addition to audio and video.

It’s ripe for abuse, and not just in an official capacity, stalking is a very real concern with bad actors in the private sector and even in your personal life.

Most people are disinclined to even bother understanding it, let alone doing anything about it.

Interesting that that this news comes from a source named “Russia Today”.
