What did everyone expect?
Let me get this straight - everyone with the technical ability spies on everyone else, if they think they can get away with it?
Sounds about right. Plus
Everyone who is spied upon complains that this is aggressive and not fair.
Sounds about right too.
The USA, NATO etc complain about Russia, North Korea and the PRC using technology to enhance their 'intelligence gathering capabilities', while doing the exact same thing themselves. (If 'our lot' didn't they would have some serious questions to answer to the relevant government ministers and parliamentary select committees.)
There are spy agencies and criminals in all countries, some more effective than others, and some are probably difficult to tell apart. Forgive me but I am not entirely surprised.
