    EM fields have always been vulnerable to detection and through applying various filters you could even decode the electromagnetic radiation coming off of your computer monitor and decode it a large distance away.

    One method of this is commonly reffered to as “Van Eck Phreaking”.

    Van Eck Phreaking is a form of electronic eavesdropping in which special equipment is used to pick up tele-comm signals or data within a computer device by monitoring and picking up the EM fields that are produced by the signals or movement of the data. This electromagnetic radiation is present in, and with the proper equipment, can be captured from computer displays that use CRTs (those large monitors that look like TV’s; Cathode-Ray Tubed monitors), from printers, and from other devices, especially unsecured wifi networks….

    It’s very interesting stuff, but abit expensive if you want to do it as a hobby…

    Juan, I’ve under-estimated your intelligence. Good job!
