NSA Tried to Hijack Google Play Store To Hack Smartphones

Here comes yet another ” unpleasant surprise” from Big Brother, as per the document obtained from the world-renowned whistle-blower Edward Snowden and revealed by CBS News working together with The Intercept.

According to the respective top-secret doc, the NSA&friends( government agencies from the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) were planning to hijack all the data traffic to Google’s and Samsung’s app stores in order to infect all the droids with spyware.

This “surveillance” team was named the Network Tradecraft Advancement Team and the main tool for achieving their goal was by using the  Internet spying system XKEYSCORE with the end result being collecting user’s data without their consent. The project was named Irritant Horn, and boy, indeed it was.

Keep in mind that FBI admits it hasn’t cracked single terror case with Patriot Act snooping power… 

Google and Samsung declined to comment on this matter.
