WikiLeaks: About 80 Companies Cooperating With NSA; Intel, IBM, Microsoft Included

Post by pman35

This should be an interesting watch , we already knew this was happening but its good to keep an eye on things Smile

original link http://hackread.com/wikileaks-80-companies-helping-nsa/

As if the Snowden revelations were not enough, we have yet another startling claim by WikiLeaks stating that nearly a hundred corporations colluded with NSA in its surveillance programs.

The tweet from WikiLeaks says,

“80 corporations have been bribed or coopted by NSA including Intel, CISCO, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, AT&T, Qualcom”
The WikiLeaks have got hold of some NSA documents that has names of the corporations that collaborated with the intelligence agencies to snoop on digital data.




The obtained slides state about 80 ‘Major Global Corporations’ are supporting BOTH missions; however, there is no clear indication as to what ‘both missions’ stand for.

Taking a lead from the cue that the slide is labeled as COMINT, it can be safely inferred that ‘Both’ refer to communications between people.

Some of the listed companies include well-known global organizations, such as Telecommunications and Network Service Providers – AT&T, Verizon and Qwest (now part of Centurylink); Network Infrastructure – Cisco and HP; Hardware Platforms Desktops/Servers – HP, Intel, Qualcomm, IBM, EDS (now HP); Operating Systems – Microsoft; Applications Software – Oracle, EDS (now HP) and Microsoft; Security Hardware and Software – Cisco, Oracle, EDS (now HP); System Integrators – HP, IBM, Cisco and EDS (now HP)

This is the first time ever a documented list of company names engaged with NSA has been highlighted.

These companies had earlier refuted charges of working in collusion with the intelligence agencies when NSA’s PRISM activities were disclosed. Some of them even alleged being victimized or attacked by the government for refusing to cooperate with the intelligence agencies.

HackRead has many articles on companies–NSA association: refusal and charges.

See: IBM sued by its own shareholder for cooperating with the NSA
A UK citizen has sued Microsoft for leaking Prism private data to the NSA
We never share info with NSA, you can still use internet anonymously: Country Director of Google in Brazil
Hacked Emails Show How Much Microsoft Charges FBI for Selling Your Personal Data
While the information made public by WikiLeaks only corroborates the common men’s suspicion about the NSA and corporations working together, it is bit intriguing that WikiLeaks has not made public the full list of organizations. WikiLeaks is notoriously famous for making documents public that shames the US government.
