Report: NSA installed software on 100K computers

Associated Press • Jan 20, 2014 at 1:50 PM

The Times cited NSA documents, computer experts and U.S. officials in its report about the use of secret technology using radio waves to gain access to computers other countries have tried to protect from spying or cyberattacks.

   The NSA called the effort an “active defense” and has used the technology to monitor units of the Chinese Army, the Russian military, drug cartels, trade institutions inside the European Union and sometime U.S. partners against terrorism such as Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan.

   The NSA said the technology has not been used in computers in the United States.
