NSA software in hard drives discovered!

by Tony Hill on February 19, 2015

Many current affairs related to espionage of US National Security Agency NSA (National Security Agency) have clearly shown that its agents could without any major problems intrude into virtually all cloud services and devices that are present on the market.

It seems that for agents this was not enought as they were installing spyware code on hard drives of personal computers. These malware is installed directly into machine code of hard drive, which in turn means that it is beyond the reach of anti-virus solutions.

The worst thing about all of this is that NSA installing malicious code on hard drives of personal computers was allowed by the manufacturers themselves. Security company Kaspersky Lab revealed that all major manufacturers of hard disk drives allowed NSA to install malicious code, such as Seagate, Toshiba and Western Digital.

At the moment, unfortunately, it is not yet known how many storage media has installed malware and where they were sold, but it is likely they have been designed for "problematic" countries such as Iran, Pakistan and China.

NSA did not want to comment about this and turned into a complete silence. Apart from that, it should be already quite clear to all of us, that nowadays no one can expect privacy, when using devices that are connected to the internet.
