NSA, GCHQ spies have hurt us more than they know – cloud group



There's no FUD factor; it's now well known that both the NSA and GCHQ (and others) are hoovering up every single bit of data that they can lay their hands on. Odds that they're hoovering up data from inside the network of the company that has a side business in selling everything in the world? Fairly high I'd reckon given the CIA ostensibly like what they're doing (for the CIA to like your kit you'd have to assume they have fairly decent insight into your kit and operations for sensible reasons).

Not for nothing but if you're aforementioned seller-of-everything, or microsoft, or google you're not going to be *allowed* to tell people that your customers have been breached by those agencies - even if you know it - so relying on public disclosure is a nonsense.
