US spies hacked global banking system – report

The mysterious hacker group known as “Shadow Brokers” released files late on Friday showing that the US National Security Agency (NSA) had found and exploited numerous vulnerabilities that allowed them to penetrate the SWIFT banking network.

The breach, which was carried out due to vulnerabilities in older versions of Microsoft Windows software, allowed NSA spies to monitor money flows among some Middle Eastern and Latin American banks.

Former CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden described the NSA’s hack as the “Mother Of All Exploits,” in reference to the massive US bomb dropped last week on Afghanistan. Snowden previously released files showing the NSA had the ability to intercept SWIFT messages.

    I have no problem with this except historicaly it becomes politicized, as long as they look at and evaluate george soros’s funding as well as the middle east adventurism in failed latin american countries.

      And there-in lies the rub. From all appearances the US spy agencies have become tools of the likes of hussein obama. They would never come down on the likes of soros as he is them.
