    you could say that about most of what's come out since the NSA's internal documents have been revealed.

    There's no reason to think that the NSA wouldn't go to extraordinary lengths to seed particular firms with malware that would allow them to remotely access and manage their systems.

    It might take considerable effort to seed a particular target organization with the necessary software, but once you've planted that seed the software can propagate itself throughout the organization.

    I expect this is a highly targeted program and very feasible.

    Bottom line: all the shit that has recently hit the fan would have been denied as a "complete fabrication" if not for the actual NSA documents that have come out.

      But the vast majority of what snowden said wasn't news. It was only news to those who weren't paying attention.

      There's tons of spyware and crap out there, I doubt any of it is NSA. They have no need for it.
