The operations of US cyberattacks and abroad surveillance continued for over a decade since whistleblower Edward Snowden’s crackdown on the US government’s extensive surveillance infrastructure that spied on Americans. The government has violated the privacy of its citizens and the security, dignity, and interests of other sovereign countries; this revelation gave a heavy blow to the US government’s self-proclaimed image of democracy, freedom, and defense of human rights. Additionally, Washington is nowhere near stopping its worldwide hacking and spying efforts.
Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) in China said in June that its systems had been a target of hackers from outside of China. In the meantime, researchers found evidence linking the hack to the US NSA’s Office of Tailored Access Operations (TAO), which collects data on cyber-warfare operations.
The US has for long used its superior cyber ability to assault other nations while disregarding the fundamental values of a civilized society to maintain order, all the while inflicting other countries.
Snowden has defended cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. He was also involved in the development of Zcash, a privacy coin.
