The US’ National Security Agency reportedly infected more than 50,000 computer systems globally and infected them with malware, according to the classified documents exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The latest claims come from a digital presentation slide, which show a world map highlighting hard computer networks and ‘world-wide implants’ under the category.

CNE (Computer Network Exploitation), NSA jargon for malware infections.

NSA’s elite hacker team conducted these advanced spy attacks on networks including the one against Belgian telecom company Belgacom that was carried out by NSA’s UK ally, the GCHQ.

The report said that CNE includes altering actions and intelligence collection via computer networks that exploit data collected from target or enemy information systems or networks.

The ‘implants’ act as digital ‘sleeper cells’ that can be started with a single push of a button.

The revelations by Snowden have severely impacted US ties with its allies apart from experiencing loss of trust from its own citizens.
