Microsoft openly offered cloud data to the NSA


Microsoft’s cooperation with the NSA and FBI on the controversial Prism program has been laid bare in a new book written by an American journalist who brought it to public attention in the first place.

Glenn Greenwald, the American journalist who worked extensively with Edward Snowden, wrote in a new book that Microsoft’s cloud services allowed the National Security Agency [NSA] to collect data from a range of its different cloud options.

"Beginning on 7 March 2013, Prism now collects Microsoft SkyDrive data as part of Prism's standard Store Communications collection package for a tasked FISA Amendments Act Section 702 [FAA702] selector,” stated a slide released by Greenwald, according to Cloud Pro.

Other sabotage methods employed by the NSA and outlined in Greenwald’s book include the supply-chain interdiction, which meant intercepting various communications products in order to carry out covert surveillance. This included routers and servers made by Cisco and involved implanting beacons before the products were repackaged and shipped out to customers across the world.

I doubt there is any large or even mid-sized U.S. firm that does not give the NSA what they want. Whether it's publicly know or not is the question...
