7:37 am
klieman is with us. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> you can use the gps to track where your kids are, you can also track a cheating spouse. but how are these apps being used in terms of victims of domestic violence. >> what we're seeing is a morphing here. what we thought is the nanny cam or elder care or employers looking for employees who might be engaged in theft. and now this whole morphing has come down to two different aspects. one is what we think of as the gps function that is where is your so-called cheating spouse going to be. are they where they say they're going to be. but much more significant now is the real danger for victims of domestic violence. because it's not only finding out where they are, it's actually hacking into through the spy ware to read e-mails, texts, hear voice mails. actually get into a phone call and eavesdrop. and one of the creepiest parts
7:38 am
of it from i sit is the ability to turn on this microphone and within 15 feet hear what is actually happening. it's treacherous. >> it is. >> how do users install this software without any detection? >> what happens here jeff is this. first of all, we should say it is illegal to manufacture. it is illegal to advertise, it is illegal to sell this type of spy ware in the united states of america. obviously, that's the creation of it. it's also, obviously, illegal to use, because you're there for a stalker, or an eavesdropper. you're wiretapping. so how does it get in? >> right. >> so how it gets in is if the stalker or aggressor, the person who wants to do a bad thing can get ahold of that phone or computer for a very very short time, this software can be installed. and they do it in very devious ways. sometimes, they can use their child. sometimes, they can go as far as using a repairman.
7:39 am
the guy comes from the cable company or the electronics. the con-ed guy, there's where it gets installed. but one of the other thing, of course, people have become expert at hacking into the computer. so all of these things become fraught with peril. >> reporter: interesting i just wanted to give you this if you look up the domestic hot line in the united states, it says on the top of the first page it gives you a safety alert to tell primarily women that your computer could be monitored and it is impossible to completely clear. so the person who is being stalked to the person who may become a victim has no idea it's on there. >> yeah i was stunned to npr found that 85% of domestic violence shelters said that victims had computers tracking them. >> there was a man named hamid
