Not that this is exactly earth shattering news based on all the multitude of leaks related to the NSA’s tactics in tracking cyber-activity online, but the NY Times recently published an article explaining that the NSA is not only tracking all things digital, but they are able to crack and hack their way through any and all encryption technologies used in the public domain:
The agency has circumvented or cracked much of the encryption, or digital scrambling, that guards global commerce and banking systems, protects sensitive data like trade secrets and medical records, and automatically secures the e-mails, Web searches, Internet chats and phone calls of Americans and others around the world, the documents show.
This apparently makes the classic comic from the New Yorker null and void.
My life is shattered.
