Mr. Zuckerberg also calls the US government as a "Threat to Internet" and wrote "“When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not our own government.,"
NSA has responded to the allegation by insisting that what they did was legal.
By saying the “NSA does not use its technical capabilities to impersonate US company websites” — the NSA appears to overly simplify what had been reported by the The Intercept
In one man-on-the-side technique, codenamed QUANTUMHAND, the agency disguises itself as a fake Facebook server. When a target attempts to log in to the social media site, the NSA transmits malicious data packets that trick the target’s computer into thinking they are being sent from the real Facebook. By concealing its malware within what looks like an ordinary Facebook page, the NSA is able to hack into the targeted computer and covertly siphon out data from its hard drive. A top-secret animation demonstrates the tactic in action.
Now the question is, did NSA impersonated FB and others ?
