Internet Encryption is Regularly Cracked By US Spies, Leaks Reveal

Newly-leaked reports from National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, the former contractor of the US agency, have uncovered the NSA’s ability to break through Internet encryption technologies worldwide. The reports detail a relationship between the NSA and a British agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, which has allowed unprecedented levels of access by government employees into various encrypted systems and databases for eavesdropping purposes.

On Friday, a spokesman from the Office of the U.S. Director of National Intelligence addressed media reports on the new leaks, saying that the agency and others like it “would not be doing [their] job[s]” unless they continue to have the ability to eavesdrop on “terrorists, cybercriminals, human traffickers and others.”
