Avast blog: Here’s how hackers can steal your data using light, radio, and sound waves

Most of us are familiar with the primary methods for moving data into and off of our computers: think Wi-Fi networks, USB ports, and Bluetooth connections. However, there are additional, lesser known ways in which data can be retrieved from a device. An elite group of cyber researchers from Ben-Gurion University (BGU) in Beersheva, Israel, have made it their mission to figure out more than a dozen different ways that bad actors with lots of time can extract information, even if you think your PC isn’t connected to anything obvious.

In my post for Avast’s blog, I summarize these methods and provide some advice on how to avoid these sorts of attacks.
