Snowden leaks revealed that the NSA has installed spying software in 100,000 machines all over the globe. Most of the software was installed when the agency got access to computer networks. Moreover, it is claimed that the National Security Agency had a secret technology to enter even computers not connected to the Internet.
Papers leaked by Edward Snowden claim that the technology in question had been in use within the last five years. It relied on a covert channel of radio waves transmitted from tiny circuit boards and USB cards secretly inserted in the machines. Apparently, this fixed the biggest problem the US intelligence agencies faced before: getting into machines that users have tried to make impervious to spying or cyber attack.
The victims of the program, code-named Quantum, have included Chinese military – the same one that Washington has in turn accused of conducting digital attacks on American military. Besides, Quantum could also be found in Russian military networks and systems used by Mexican police and drug cartels, EU trade institutions and allies like Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan.

|Yea, because we know the hole world is on the internet!|
|that report proves.....NSA is scared.....|
|The 100,000 high security machines broken into include as stated EU Trade institutions and their partner countries (allied) the latter is of no surprise following the Merkal incident,obviously further spying will be found out in time.|
There have been millions of machines monitored by the Microsoft corporation,the NSA and GCHQ but to answer a previous statement the 100,000 machines accessed are high level secure targets in foreign powers systems and networks and by being found to do this to their partner countries without their consent shows the NSA are not to be trusted with any information civilian or Military since they are dishonourable even to those they profess to be friends with.
|Not to worry, America flat broke, in few years time we will be sending aid to the shitty country like we do to Africa|

|Sorry I know my remarks are going to come under attack from all sides here. But here goes. Some of you really need to grow up and realise that the world has changed. After 911 everyone got on the band wagon wanting to know why the US had not been aware of the proposed attacks on the twin towers. The reason was that most of theirs and the rest of the worlds intelligence gathering was still geared to a cold war mentality. That being it was aimed at gaining intelligence of foreign state secrets. But after 911 the danger was found to becoming from small individual terrorist groups, often comprising just 10's of people. Plus methods of communication and the associated technologies also changed. Hence the methods of collecting information needed to change as well. They could no longer solely rely on targeting individuals. Hence the change to a blanket gathering of data, which is later processed for meaningful information. All the messages they intercept mean absolutely nothing to them until they are processed. So if you text message to your bit on the side is picked up do you actually think they give a dam and are going to be contacting your wife the next morning.|
They are searching for information relating to dangers to society, be those messages regarding terrorist activities, drug cartels or child sex groups. So yes there is a danger that my emails or texts may and probably have been scanned at some point in the past. But since I am pretty certain I have done nothing to warrant a team of the SAS to come through my back window any time soon. I am prepared to except that some anonymous machine has scanned my stuff for key words. Because, the upside is that hopefully the SAS or some other force will be swooping in to stop the next 911 from happening. We are just going to have to except this type of monitoring, if we want to live in a safer society. But since only those who have something to hide need be afraid, I am prepared to live with that.

|Cat wake up and smell the coffee!|
First: Al-Qaeda doesn't use phones, cell phones or the internet.
Second: There was no fear of terrorism in the US until the USSR fell. Why, the government need something new for us to fear. No fear no $$$$! The USA is the terrorist!
Third: How many bombs have terrorist planted that failed? The Shoe bomb, the Underwear bomb, the times square bomb, the NY subway bomb. Face it, it's not that hard to light a fuse! (Both the shoe bomber and the underwear bomber sat in their seats trying to light a fuse, why? Some reason they couldn't go to the bathroom? So much for smart and sophisticated.)
Fourth: Need more, the evening of the Boston Marathon Bombing I found a message stating that a single white teen male bomber would be arrested the following Friday. The following Friday, guess who was arrested, a single white teen. So either I found a real true to life psychic, or we are being lied to. I don't believe in psychics, and I certainly don't believe shit from generals or politicians.
"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; It is the creed of slaves".
-William Pitt, 1783
Do you think only Jews in Nazi Germany who "had something to hide" needed to be afraid they were being tracked, searched, tagged, herded, and killed? Are you so blind you don't realize that this subverts your security and endangers your life and future? Privacy is your first and last line of security. Subverting privacy subverts security. Just ask the NSA if you can violate their "privacy" and look at all their data without it being a national SECURITY issue.
Guess what- everybody that's been paying attention knows that former NSA guys like Bill Binney will tell you that we HAD THE INTEL to stop 9/11 without this. The FBI even caught some of them and were told to let them go.
They had the tools to do the job, just as we have courts that could legally try such individuals. The only reason to violate due process and have secret courts or unwarranted searches and data mining is if you intend to FABRICATE evidence and cases.
We (according to NSA whistleblower Bill Binney) intentionally decided after 9/11 that we should scrap the constitutional non-treasonous spying and target the public at large, levying a cold war on the nation and ignoring the terrorists.
They are (according ro NSA whistleblower Russel Tice) obviously searching for information to blackmail congress, do insider trading, selectively enforce laws, and track entire religous, political, and social groups (just as Nazi's would do, marking Jews with the "star of David" before the purge).
If you think you have nothing to hide, then you must live in a cardboard box with nothing and no family, or associates because if you have any of that then you have something to hide even if it's just the fact that you're a Jew.
@7 They print the money. They aren't broke until peoplestop accepting $$$ to build NSA super computers.

|Maybe Snowden never be at NSA Area for what I know!...NSA has many small companies inside and it not easy for any GOV agency like NASA to organize and have budget percent from GOV and from What they can made annually...it not like Europe without public media information like NSA news around world..tomorrow NSA can have another story because it spy agency and what you can trust in your PC if you don't know what you have inside with Internet etc..|

|So... the NSA is watching me. I wouldn't take that as a threat, I'd take it as a Compliment!|
If I had a Hamster: I'd train it how to use a GoPro so it can record and upload its Helmet-Cam video to youtube showing a first-cam look of its mountain-bike rush through my deep dark sphincteral "cave". That would give the NSA something to puke about during their lunchbreaks. lmao
|Nice 1 magenmar..|
Another fun passtime is sending emails to the NSSA,with photo's or video's of their suckers being dismembered..(always geotag it in Langley)
-being hanged,being shot,being executed with a tiny knife,being burned,being "loved"..
About 9-11..shut up already...over 20.000 people knew it was going to happen.
Bush still thinks it's his greatest achievement..(granted..it is)
2 shitty airplanes and the whole of us army ,can't do a thing..
Try this in China,Russia,Brasil,Israel,Syria,Turkey,etc,etc,..
Shame on you as a people,for not wanting to see the facts.
That day more money was "earned" then ever before..
Remember the REAL heroes,the passengers on 1 of the planes,who crashed it themselves!!!!!

|I am almost lost for words with some of the comments and conspiracy theory's you guys believe in. They are up there with Elvis still being alive, America not landing on the moon and Aliens being at Area51. How the hell do you think terrorist groups do communicate, carrier pigeon. As early as last August four of the top members of AL-qaeda were killed following the interception of a telephone call news.sky.com/story/1124956/embassy-threat-came-from-bugged-al-qaeda-call.|
I will accept that the US did have intelligence hinting about the 911 attacks. That intelligence having come partly from phone intercepts. The reason for there not stopping the attacks sadly was down to the inadequacies of the intelligence agencies in the US. Mainly the fact they have always had the problem of one agency (FBI) not wanting to share intelligence with another (CIA).
There is little point in arguing other example or points since you will simply turn them into either conspiracies or planted false information. So I will leave you guys to become dooms day preparers, stocking up with tuna fish and gas masks.
|@18 to date in the last 7 years of internet spying to my knowledge not one conviction for terrorism has been made from the internet so why are 2/3`s of the worlds citizens being spied on by the NSA,Microsoft fusion centres,CYBER etc.|
The USA has been collecting telephone communication data for almost 40 years and such has captured a few terrorists in the last few decades but very few since Al-Qaeda was an American state sponsored militant organization up to the point that G.W Bush made war on them when not expedient to allow them to perpetuate and by the USA`s actions of using terror tactics on the terrorists it created it has only swelled their ranks in Afghanistan,Syria and allowed them into Iraq to recruit those that have been occupied and disillusioned by the USA,Terror has begat Terrorists.
What you should consider is how far is far enough and how many countries,incursions and civil wars/occupations will it take for the USA to realize that people do not need their help to die as have 1.5 million civilians in Iraq,how much genocide is enough and how long will the citizens of the USA,Great Britain and many ,many countries have to suffer from the debt and suffering these actions have and are creating.
I am offering no false information as you put it it is facts that we are all aware of Obama has allowed and signed off on waterboarding in the past,GITMO is an unconstitutional internationally Illegal place of detention without cause and if asked the people of the now occupied lands of Afghanistan etc do not want American intervention and nor do Pakistan or the other neighbouring countries the terrorists attack across the border.If terrorists want to pass messages the smart ones use the dark net or cipher messages or keywords for operations etc and very ,very few are ever caught(since trained by the CIA way back in the 80`s)
|@18 I suggest you look up the CIA/NSA whitepaper on world global cyber strategy 2000/2001 which outlines the NSA`s plan and methods of control for the future of the Internet and read up on the USA`s plan of a coup d`tat to take out Saddam Hussein and State sponsored terrorism,it is not rocket science and you will learn you are talking from your posterior sir.enuff said.|
|Dead on, Embolism. I don't know how a person can take in all the evidence, a great deal of which isn't even kept secret, and not see the quite obvious agenda(s) being pushed quite forcefully by choice persons in positions of power. Cat, there is a great deal of information and disinformation out there designed to conceal the truth. By calling out anyone who's opinion differs from the engineered, spoon-fed dribble the government(s) release as truth you are actually the one with which its "pointless" to argue, no, DISCUSS truth with. The word argue even suggests that your mind is made up. There is a very sick and twisted element that has infiltrated all facets of world power, and the real question is how far will the twisting and manipulation go before we all find ourselves contained to a supervised "lock and key" type life style under the guise of protection from "terrorists".They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.|
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither.
He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security. He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither.
Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither.
The very word secrecy is repugnant, in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, apposed to secret societies, secret oaths, and to secret proceedings. But we are apposed around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy, that relies primarily on cover means for expanding it’s fear of influence, on infiltration, instead of invasion. On subversion, instead of elections. On intimidation, instead of free choice.
It is a system that has conscripted, vast human and material resources, into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine, that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
It’s preparations are concealed, not published. It’s mistakes are buried, not headlined. It’s discenters silenced, not praised.
No expenditure is questioned. No secret is reveled.
That is why the Athenian law maker solo declared it a crime to any citizen to shrink from controversy.
I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP IN THE TRMENDOUS TASK OF INFORMING AND ALERTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. CONFIDENT WITH YOUR HELP MAN WILL BE WHAT HE WAS BORN TO BE, FREE AND INDEPENDENT.
|just 100.000?? believe that if you want; the National Snoop Agency's in way deeper than a mere 100.000 pcs. thanks Sam 4 the NFO..|
|hat doesn't make a lot of sense. If the shoe was on the other foot (Chinese putting spying devices in computers sold in the U.S.), you'd probably be all for such revelations. The only reason you don't like what Snowden did, is because it was directed at the NSA. What's good for the goose should be good for the gander.|
That said, I recognize the importance of keeping an eye on our "enemies". Just let's not pretend that we have exclusivity to the high road.
