FCW staff report:
A National Security Agency program to monitor global Internet traffic is broader in scope than previously reported, according to a report from The Intercept and Der Spiegel. The report cited classified documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
The New York Times reported on the “Treasure Map” program in November, with intelligence sources telling the Times that the program covers only foreign and Defense Department networks.
But the program is broader than that, according to the Intercept and Der Spiegel report, in that the leaked documents “clearly show that Treasure Map monitors traffic and devices inside the United States.”
