NSA infiltrates links to Yahoo, Google data centers worldwide, Snowden documents say


In this slide from a National Security Agency presentation on “Google Cloud Exploitation,” a sketch shows where the “Public Internet” meets the internal “Google Cloud” where user data resides. Two engineers with close ties to Google exploded in profanity when they saw the drawing.

The National Security Agency has secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers around the world, according to documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and interviews with knowledgeable officials.

By tapping those links, the agency has positioned itself to collect at will from hundreds of millions of user accounts, many of them belonging to Americans. The NSA does not keep everything it collects, but it keeps a lot.

This is also interesting if you know that when you set up a Windows 8.1 client in no domain infrastructure you get connected and a account and profile replication to a Microsoft Live account.

The question is really not if but when dose NSA get revealed that they have infiltrated also MS Live and get even more personal information.

...

I also wonder where is Microsoft (Hotmail,  MSN, Live, Office) here ?!

It's not logical that NSA "hack" Yahoo & Google and to leave intact popular services like Microsoft's... in that case, if Al-Qaida use @live e-mail addresses, We are all in danger. ;D

Maybe they just didn't mection MS, or MS made an apple-like move so the NSA didn't need to hack them...

Well, that is very possible...  :up:

This I got after short searching on the net - "Microsoft handed the NSA access to encrypted messages"http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/jul/11/microsoft-nsa-collaboration-user-data

"Microsoft is moving toward a major new effort to encrypt its Internet traffic amid fears that the National Security Agency may have broken into its global communications links, said people familiar with the emerging plans.

Suspicions at Microsoft, while building for several months, sharpened in October when it was reported that the NSA was intercepting traffic inside the private networks of Google and Yahoo: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/nsa-infiltrates-links-to-yahoo-google-data-centers-worldwide-snowden-documents-say/2013/10/30/e51d661e-4166-11e3-8b74-d89d714ca4dd_story.html , two industry rivals with similar global infrastructures, said people with direct knowledge of the company’s deliberations. They said top Microsoft executives are meeting this week to decide what encryption initiatives to deploy and how quickly."
