NSA involved in abusive surveillance and offensive cyber attacks, manipulating bank balances to achieve targets.
Until now we only knew one side of the story but now it is time to expose the other side. A general perception that National Security Agency (NSA) spies on just about everyone in the world may need to be revisited. According to a new report by TechDirt, the agency is involved not just in general spying but also spying on customer’s bank accounts and manipulating their balances.
As suggested by the 300-page Report and Recommendations prepared by the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology for the US president, Barrack Obama, the findings of the report indicate NSA abusing their powers against financial institutions.
This Youtube video is an excellent discussion by Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert on implied role of NSA in cyber attacks and manipulation against financial institutions.
If one were to believe the recommendations listed in the report, it clearly advises the governments to refrain from using surveillance and “offensive cyber capabilities” to steal industry secrets and manipulate the financial accounts. And this clearly indicates NSA’s (negative) role in fingering with the bank accounts.
