I recently ran across these two stories via an old friend. Thanks to our traitor (Snowden) I would expect that more activities involving our Intelligence Agencies will be coming to light.

The malware uses a number of command-and-control servers running on Linux operating systems. Those Linux servers are used to send infected e-mails, collect spying data and keep logs of victims.


Three of those Linux servers held up to nine Canadian targeted IP addresses, the Kaspersky report said.


The report did not say how many Canadian banks were connected to those nine IP numbers. It said up to 100 financial institutions were hit at more than 300 IP addresses in 30 countries.

That is the cyber theft story that has been ongoing http://www.philippines-expats.com/topic/21393-bank-hackers-steal-millions-via-malware/ .  I was posting about our intelligence agencies (US and UK) theft of security credentials for cell phones and adding malware to hardware devices to get unfettered intelligence without any legal boundaries. If you or I engaged in any of these activities, we would be jailed.

Many consider Snowden to be a courageous whistle blower who shined some much needed light into the dark corners of government abuse of power.

It is a fine line between whistle blowing and getting people killed through leaking classified information. Oh wait, our legislators do that all of the time! my bad...
