NSA has been hacking Belgian Telecom and ISP for two years
Because the Belgian government is the main shareholder of the telecommunications company, the case is also politically very sensitive. Premier Di Rupo (PS) would today before trading comity communicate about the case.
The NSA's Tracfin data bank also contained data from the BELGIUM's Brussels-based Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT), a network used by thousands of banks to send transaction information securely. SWIFT was named as a "target," according to the documents, which also show that the NSA spied on the organization on several levels, involving, among others, the agency's "tailored access operations" division. One of the ways the agency accessed the data included reading "SWIFT printer traffic from numerous banks," the documents show.
"When he was running the Army's Intelligence and Security Command, Alexander brought many of his future allies down to Fort Belvoir for a tour of his base of operations, a facility known as the Information Dominance Center. It had been designed by a Hollywood set designer to mimic the bridge of the starship Enterprise from Star Trek, complete with chrome panels, computer stations, a huge TV monitor on the forward wall, and doors that made a 'whoosh' sound when they slid open and closed. Lawmakers and other important officials took turns sitting in a leather 'captain's chair' in the center of the room and watched as Alexander, a lover of science-fiction movies, showed off his data tools on the big screen.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: The Inquirer confidently reports that only administrative passwords have been hacked for two years and no any damage !! Hahahahahhahahahahah.
Wow. Ironically, that reminds me that current USA government AES standard is just invented in Beliguim ! It is based on the Rijndael cipher developed by two Belgian cryptographers, Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen
Holy cow , that is called NSA success !
