NSA compromised more than 50000 networks with malware

NSA compromised more than 50000 networks with malware: A new report based on documents leaked by Snowden revealed that the NSA placed malicious software on more than 50000 networks around the world.
The NSA infected more than 50000 networks worldwide with malicious software designed to steal sensitive information. The large-scale cyber espionage operation was revealed once again by documents provided by former NSA consultant Edward Snowden according to Dutch media outlet NRC.

“The NSA declined to comment and referred to the US Government. A government spokesperson states that any disclosure of classified material is harmful to our national security.” reported NRC.

The news is not surprising but once again raises the debate on the effrontery US surveillance program that created a complex and efficient global spying machine.

The documents include a presentation dated 2012 that details how the NSA operates worldwide to steal information exploiting Computer Network Exploitation (CNE) in more than 50000 networks.
