Think You're Safe from the NSA? Think Again...


There are some smart people at the NSA.  The agency has people with such computer skills they make Bill Gates look like a preschooler.

In order to protect the United States from a cyber attack, the NSA has developed ways to cyber attack from their end as well.  It seems that Forbes has found some incredible information that was discovered by the Kaspersky antivirus company.

According to Forbes.com:
One of the more startling components, according to the Russian anti-virus provider, was able to alter the hard drive firmware of more than dozen different hard drive brands, including Seagate, Western Digital, Toshiba, Maxtor and IBM. This would have given the attackers persistence on victims’ PCs and allowed them to set up secret data stores on the machines, only accessible to the hackers.

The article makes for some fascinating reading and it is just a little bit scary as well.  Basically, no one  knows how to hack better than the NSA... and if they hack you, chances are you won't even know it.
