The NSA makes Watergate break-in look like kindergarten

The NSA and the British agency GCHQ have broken into Deutsche Telekom, according to der Spiegal. Their goal? Map the Internet.

The initiative is called Treasure Map:

[E]very single end device that is connected to the Internet somewhere in the world — every smartphone, tablet and computer — is to be made visible.

The article continues:

Because Netcologne is a regional provider, it would seem highly likely that the NSA or one of its Treasure Map partners accessed the network from within Germany. That would be a clear violation of German law and potentially another NSA-related case for German public prosecutors. Thus far, the only NSA-related casecurrently being investigated is the monitoring of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone.
