Massive Hack Attack Effects 99 Countries, Believed to Be of NSA Origin

When the NSA was given the green light to enhance their unconstitutional gathering of personal data from American citizens, many feared the worst.

The fear that swept the nation was rooted in the idea that the 4th Amendment would be eviscerated by the NSA’s new tools and power, leading to arrests and imprisonment far outside the originally intended scope of the power-grab.  Everyone from low-level drug users to internet trolls believed that the government could be knocking on their door at any time, thanks to information illegally gleaned by the NSA.

Now, those fears are being multiplied tenfold, as Wikileaks has released a plethora of hacking tools that once belonged solely to the NSA and CIA, in an effort to prove just how dangerous these intelligence agencies had become.  The tools, which have been in circulation for less than two weeks, have already been used to infect nearly 75,000 computers in 99 countries as of this writing.

“A huge cyber attack leveraging hacking tools widely believed to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency brought disruption to Britain’s health system on Friday and infected dozens of other countries around the world, security researchers said.

“Hospitals and doctors’ surgeries in parts of England were forced to turn away patients and cancel appointments after they were infected with the ‘ransomware’, which scrambled data on computers and demanded payments of $300 to $600 to restore access. People in affected areas were being advised to seek medical care only in emergencies.”

This terrifying invasion of hacked ransom proceedings into our everyday lives would not have occurred were it not for the NSA and CIA’s own software being created.  The government’s massive and unscrupulous overreach into the private lives of American citizens is directly responsible for this ridiculous, cyber crime spree.

Perhaps this epidemic can serve as a warning to future U.S. generations who may be faced with similar data-gathering dilemmas.  The unwieldy power of the federal government needs no further enhancement.  Ever.  By allowing this unequivocally immoral invasion of privacy to fester and ferment at the highest levels of covert government operations has now victimized the entire virtual world, and those who allowed this reversal of privacy rights must be held accountable.
