NSA 'infected' 50,000 networks with malware

The Tailored Access Operations department used it to steal sensitive information, according to a censored slide leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

NRC said 20,000 networks had been hit in 2008, with the program recently expanded to include others in Rome, Berlin, Pristina, Kinshasa, Rangoon.

The NSA declined to comment.

The malware could be put in a "sleeper" mode and activated with a click of a button, the paper said.

"Clearly, conventional criminal gangs aren't the only people interested in breaking into computer networks anymore," wrote computer security expert Graham Cluley in a blogpost.

"All organisations need to ask themselves the question of whether they could be at risk."

The reports come as Twitter introduces technology it says will help protect people's messages from unwanted scrutiny.

It has employed a system known as "forward secrecy" that makes it harder for eavesdroppers to access the keys used to encrypt data passing between Twitter's servers and users' phones, tablets and PCs.
Dale Carnegie anyone?

You wouldn't want to be a racist by disagreeing with a black president would you.

The President has nothing to do with the NSA. It's ridiculous to think he's looking over their shoulder. The powers given the NSA was from Congress.
Thanks from Engineer

We’re going to need more prisons.

According to the Supreme Court, it is not illegal to gather the sensitive information, it is only illegal to use it when it is “unwarranted”. Well, who decides when it is “warranted”?

You got it, the guys collecting the information in the first place. At some point, the standard Obama line of, “Gosh, we’re sorry, we won’t do that anymore” will no longer fly. Yes, we will have to wait until the regime is out of office, but the day of reckoning will still come. And when it does, thousands of government employees will go on trial.

We’re going to need more prisons.

Don't tell anyone, it is a secret the NSA is an Executive Branch Agency.

The Secret is, the PRESIDENT RUNS THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

and the kicker is Valarie Jarrett is really the POTUS, Obama is just the empty suit.
