” top-secret National Security Agency team uses spyware and hacking to gather intelligence on targets, according to a new report based on internal agency documents.
According to Der Spiegel, a German magazine that published some of the documents, the unit’s interception techniques are worthy of James Bond: intercepting a computer being shipped to a target and installing spyware before it is delivered; supplying an altered monitor cable that transmits everything on a computer’s screen to the NSA; or planting a USB plug with a secret radio transmitter.”
