A strange thing came up when I opened up a photo file. WTF?
[link to www.flickr.com]

I hope I have posted the link correctly.

It looks like a screen shot of available wi-fi networks. I didn't take any such screen shot. I opened up the folder and clicked on photo. This is what came up. The photo I was trying to access is also in that folder.

This same screen shot of available networks is present in the photo file of another picture that was taken at a different time and in a different place.

That pictures taken on my cell phone camera should have screenshots of wifi networks in their folders is weird enough. But "FBISurveillanceVanNu" being one of the available networks is creepy.

What is it then? It looks like a screen shot to me. I cannot figure out what it is and how it got in 2 photo folders. I uploaded whatever this is to flikr to share and try to figure this out.

Why such a hostile reaction. You apparently did not read my post well enough before you accused me of lying. I wrote that it looks like a screen shot.

Someone has used your camera and taken a photo of a monitor, you can clearly see the green distortion rings and the writing is out of focus, also the picture is at an angle. Its nothing close to what a screen shot is but in anycase if that is your camera, someone else has used it to play a joke on you.

If it really was an FBI surveillance wifi network... would they CALL it that?!?!?! C'mon, it would have some innocuous code name.

That's funny! I have heard of people doing similar things. However, I wasn't searching for a wi-fi network, I was trying to open up a photo file that contained a family picture when I first discovered this. Then, I went to another photo file and the same thing was there.

If no one else has ever used your computer it's a genuine conspiracy.

Granted. My concern is how this got into the folders of two separate files. I'm not concerned or freaked out about any possible surveillance.

Only thing I can think of is you needed to access a network to view the file, and it opened your available networks. Or like someone else said its a screenshot someone switched on you.

These pics were on my cell phone. I just downloaded them to this computer today. I'm more concerned about the technical aspects of this.

screen shots would not be crooked like that, that shot was taken from a phone, the OP pulled up the networks on their own and then snapped it to get attention here at GLP!!

No, I don't have that type of mind. I did discover that this was in a file on the computer I am using, however. Not trying to get attention and will delete this post.
