Quote:Top-secret documents reveal that the National Security Agency is dramatically expanding its ability to covertly hack into computers on a mass scale by using automated systems that reduce the level of human oversight in the process.

The classified files – provided previously by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden – contain new details about groundbreaking surveillance technology the agency has developed to infect potentially millions of computers worldwide with malware “implants.” [...]

The implants being deployed were once reserved for a few hundred hard-to-reach targets, whose communications could not be monitored through traditional wiretaps. But the documents analyzed by The Intercept show how the NSA has aggressively accelerated its hacking initiatives in the past decade by computerizing some processes previously handled by humans. The automated system – codenamed TURBINE – is designed to “allow the current implant network to scale to large size (millions of implants) by creating a system that does automated control implants by groups instead of individually.” [...]

Not a surprise to me at all, in fact, I'm shocked they haven't been doing this since about mid 2000. coffeetime.gif reading.gif
Your antivirus isn't going to take care of this one, and I'll bet money there is a Mac and Linux version as well.
Time to bust out the windows 95 first edition and run it in VMware, or even better, wish I had an Amiga or Commodore 64. I don't care about what's on my computer, anyone who stores anything sensitive on one gets what they deserve, all things considered.
However, I don't care for the invasion of privacy.
Targeting random internet users with no good reason, other than they can, and calling that intelligence, really?
The cost benefit ratio of chasing your tail to the tune of billions and coming up with nothing never enters into the equation when you're a government employee I guess. coffeetime.gif

Hey, JR ~ it's how the web came to be! Just scrounge a modem:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64
>>Networking software

During the 1980s, the Commodore 64 was used to run many bulletin board systems using software packages such as Bizarre 64, Blue Board, C-Net, Color 64, CMBBS, C-Base, DMBBS and The Deadlock Deluxe BBS Construction Kit, often with sysop-made modifications. These boards sometimes were used to distribute cracked software. As late as December 2013, there were 25 such Bulletin Board Systems in operation, reachable via the Telnet protocol.

There were also major commercial online services, such as Compunet (UK), CompuServe (US – later bought by America Online), The Source (US) and Minitel (France) among many others. These services usually required custom software which was often bundled with a modem and included free online time as they were billed by the minute.

Quantum Link (or Q-Link) was a US and Canadian online service for Commodore 64 and 128 personal computers that operated from November 5, 1985 to November 1, 1994. It was operated by Quantum Computer Services of Vienna, Virginia, which in October 1991 changed its name to America Online, and continues to operate its AOL service for the IBM PC compatible and Apple Macintosh today. Q-Link was a modified version of the PlayNET system, which Control Video Corporation (CVC, later renamed Quantum Computer Services) licensed.<<

on a more serious note,,,they did,,,and I got it,,,don't know if it was beta version or what,,,

but I got it,,,and it was sending out data,,,which I did catch,,,it wasn't wrecking the

computer,,,just sending out data,,,I tried every free version of virus software,,,I hit all

the checkout websites,,,everything said,,,no virus,,,but I looked at the data it sent,,,

it was sending all my keystrokes,,,which I tested,,,it was slowly sending out all the

information from my computer,,,it was buried well,,,so I reformatted and reinstalled

some stuff,,,and it was gone,,,so I went back to where I thought I got it,,,and got

it again,,,and reformatted and reinstalled most stuff,,,and never went back to there...
