MOSCOW, 12 Mar – RIA Novosti. Both cameras and other people can monitor the personal life of Russians in public places, said Inna Svyatenko, chair of the Federation Council committee on social policy, in an interview with the radio station “Moscow speaking”.
According to the senator, the personal life of each person should be limited to the boundaries of his apartment. This, as she stressed, will help to avoid the attention of third parties and not be afraid of “leaking” of this or that information.
“Our personal life can only be in our personal space, and on the street – regardless of whether it is an electronic eye or the eyes of good neighbors – we are still in a public place, which means that this is no longer our personal space”, – noted Svyatenko.
The senator also recalled that public spaces are monitored for security purposes.
Earlier, the Kommersant newspaper, citing data from the Internet of Things search engine Shodan.io, announced the discovery of a vulnerability in more than 6.3 thousand video surveillance cameras in Russia. Avast clarified that most of them can be accessed without a password and username.
