NSA allegedly puts backdoors on American-made network devices
Glenn Greenwald's new book titled No Place to Hide is out today. Aside from telling the story of how he worked with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and journalist Laura Poitras to make public the mind-blowing extent of mass US surveillance, the book also includes a number of revelations and documents that have not been previously shared with the public.
Among these is the disclosure that the US National Security Agency has been interfering with shipments ("supply-chain interdiction") of American-made computer network devices destined for foreign markets.
"A June 2010 report from the head of the NSA's Access and Target Development department is shockingly explicit. The NSA routinely receives - or intercepts - routers, servers and other computer network devices being exported from the US before they are delivered to the international customers," he wrote for the Guardian.
