+ - Snowden: Microsoft's NSA Cooperation Closer than Acknowledged

Submitted by guttentag
guttentag (313541) writes "Classified documents Edward Snowden has released to the Guardian newspaper show Microsoft helped the NSA circumvent its encryption on Outlook.com, worked with the FBI to allow Prism access to SkyDrive and to study how users create email aliases. The NSA documents claim that Prism tripled its collection of Skype video calls nine months after Microsoft bought the service, and that the NSA shares data from Prism with the FBI and CIA as a "team sport." Microsoft launched a new "Your Privacy Is Our Priority" marketing campaign just days before Snowden left Hawaii for Hong Kong. The NY Times also has a story on the release."
