Latest National Security Agency Stories
Yahoo! Inc. on Monday announced that it will encrypt all information that flows between its data center by Q1 of 2014 as part of an effort to beef up security following recent revelations that the National Security Agency (NSA) had tapped into the data centers.
There can be no doubt the NSA has been, from a public trust and public relations point-of-view, marred by Edward Snowden and his slow and steady release of information to select media outlets. Now the intelligence agency emerging with a blackened eye is the UK's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).
Last week it was revealed that Google and Yahoo! Data centers were being infiltrated by the NSA and data between the companies and their users were being intercepted. Now Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt is going on the verbal offensive against the NSA.
New documents obtained by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden claims the National Security Agency has broken into Google’s and Yahoo’s data centers. This program is codenamed MUSCULAR and targets data centers all around the world.
The National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting contact lists and “buddy lists” of Internet users from across the globe with help from email and web chat companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Yahoo.
