As you might have noticed, a new document has been leaked by Edward Snowden. The document that got leaked holds numerous secrets which the NSA does not want you to know. A while ago this document got released by Glen Greenwald. Edward Snowden had send the classified information to Glen so he could use it for research and publication goals.
The first thing which you will notice once you take a look at the leaked document is the fact that the NSA has updated their PRISM tool with new Skype exploit that will allow the NSA to collect more valuable information from their victim.
As you can imagine, Skype is used by millions of users on the internet. Hacking these users would provide a massive input of valuable information which agencies can use to target their terrorists, criminals and spies.
The PRISM Skype plugin is capable of obtaining the following data from the Skype users:
- Buddy list
- Credit card info
- Call data records
- User account info
- And other materials
Now as you continue to read the document you will be able to see that the NSA has gained explicit access to the Facebook plugin which allows users to use the Facebook database. This plugin allows the NSA employers to browse each Facebook profile for the following information:
- Pattern of Life
- Connections to associates
We have collected the slides for you in the gallery below so you will have easy access to them:
The NSA tampers with US-made internet routers
The Guardian wrote a report on how the NSA tampers with US-made internet routers.
For years, the US government loudly warned the world that Chinese routers and other internet devices pose a “threat” because they are built with backdoor surveillance functionality that gives the Chinese government the ability to spy on anyone using them. Yet what the NSA‘s documents show is that Americans have been engaged in precisely the activity that the US accused the Chinese of doing.
