The NSA could be spying on you through your Xbox.
The news has been filled with reports that the NSA is spying on your social media sites, your emails and that they can even get access to your computer camera.
Now, the latest report has revealed that the NSA can spy on you through your Xbox console and through the game, World of Warcraft.
According to documents leaked by Edward Snowden, US and UK officials have been tapping into online gaming worlds to try and recruit informers and gather data on game communications.
While it may seem strange to us that the government would be interested in these online worlds, but the NSA has claimed that there could be a way for terrorists to hide in plain sight. To date however, the agency has not actually uncovered a terrorist plot within an online world.
Xbox live has 48 million members worldwide and it remains unclear if the company knew the NSA was monitoring the content.
Since the release of the NSA’s spying activities, several top technology companies like AOL, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo have signed the Global Government Surveillance Reform which is pushing for a limit to the government’s ability to collect users information, oversight and accountability, transparency about the governments demands, respecting information and avoiding conflicts among other governments.
