With the tech they have that we don't know about yet, they can hone in on anyone at anytime.

I believe some of us are protected though, jmho.
I know that I know nothing - thanks Capricorn.

Former N.S.A. Employee Pleads Guilty to Taking Classified Information
 The New York Times The New York Times
By SCOTT SHANE and ADAM GOLDMAN
17 hrs ago

BALTIMORE — A former National Security Agency employee admitted on Friday that he had illegally taken from the agency classified documents believed to have subsequently been stolen from his home computer by hackers working for Russian intelligence.

Nghia H. Pho, 67, of Ellicott City, Md., pleaded guilty to one count of willful retention of national defense information, an offense that carries a possible 10-year sentence. Prosecutors agreed not to seek more than eight years, however, and Mr. Pho’s attorney, Robert C. Bonsib, will be free to ask for a more lenient sentence. He remains free while awaiting sentencing on April 6.

Mr. Pho had been charged in secret, though some news reports had given a limited description of the case. Officials unsealed the charges on Friday, resolving the long-running mystery of the defendant’s identity.

Mr. Pho, who worked as a software developer for the N.S.A., was born in Vietnam but is a naturalized United States citizen. Prosecutors withheld from the public many details of his government work and of the criminal case against him, which is linked to a continuing investigation of Russian hacking.

But in court documents, prosecutors did disclose that he worked from 2006 to 2016 for the N.S.A.’s “Tailored Access Operations.” The unit, whose name has now been changed to Computer Network Operations, is the N.S.A.’s fastest-growing component. Its hackers break into foreign computer networks to gather intelligence, often leaving behind software implants that continue to collect documents and other data and forward it to the agency for months or years.

Prosecutors said that from 2010 until March 2015, Mr. Pho began removing classified documents and writings. He kept those materials, some in digital form, at his home in Maryland, according to prosecutors.

It appears he was charged in March 2015.

Mr. Pho is one of three N.S.A. workers to be charged in the past two years with mishandling classified information, a dismal record for an agency that is responsible for some of the government’s most carefully guarded secrets.

The leaks have come to light as investigators scramble to trace the source of an even worse breach of N.S.A. security: the public release of the agency’s hacking tools by a still-unidentified group calling itself the Shadow Brokers. Some of those tools have been subsequently used for “ransomware” attacks that shut down or disrupted businesses, hospitals, railways and other enterprises around the world this year.

Government officials, who would speak of the classified details of the case only on condition of anonymity, said that Mr. Pho took the classified documents home to help him rewrite his resume. But he had installed on his home computer antivirus software made by Kaspersky Lab, a top Russian software company, and Russian hackers are believed to have exploited the software to steal the documents, the officials said.

It is not clear whether anyone at Kaspersky Lab was aware of the document theft. The company has acknowledged finding N.S.A. hacking software on a customer’s computer and removing it, but says the material was subsequently destroyed. It has denied that it works with Russian intelligence.

The sensitivity of the case was evident on Friday, when one courtroom official described the charges against Mr. Pho as “super-sealed” before the hearing. The aggressive hacking of American targets by the Russian government, including the Democratic National Committee during last year’s election campaign, is a high-priority concern for the United States, and forensic information from Mr. Pho’s computer might provide useful clues.

In addition to Mr. Pho, an N.S.A. contractor, Harold T. Martin III, was arrested last year after F.B.I. agents found some 50 terabytes of data and documents that he had taken from the N.S.A. and other agencies over 20 years. The material was stuffed into a garden shed and car, among other places, and investigators have considered the possibility that the Shadow Brokers might have obtained the hacking tools from Mr. Martin, who had also worked at one point for agency’s Tailored Access Operations.

A contract linguist who worked for the N.S.A. in Georgia, Reality Winner, was arrested in June and charged with providing a single N.S.A. document to the online publication The Intercept. Both Mr. Martin and Ms. Winner are being held awaiting trial.

In Your Face: China’s all-seeing state
China has been building what it calls "the world's biggest camera surveillance network". Across the country, 170 million CCTV cameras are already in place and an estimated 400 million new ones will be installed in the next three years.

Many of the cameras are fitted with artificial intelligence, including facial recognition technology. The BBC's John Sudworth has been given rare access to one of the new hi-tech police control rooms.

Producer: Joyce Liu. Camera: Wang Xiqing.

Indeed  8) 170 million cameras and 400 million more on the way?

Think the PTB over there might be just a touch paranoid? I also find it ironic that some individuals praise the chinese for that colossus they have orchestrated...

no wonder their citizens like to emigrate  :o

NSA Chief Mike Rogers’s Classified Retirement Memo Leaks
 Daily Intelligencer Daily Intelligencer

3 hrs ago

National Security Agency head Admiral Mike Rogers is retiring in the spring, he reportedly told staffers in a “classified memo” Friday.

The memo has since leaked to NPR and Politico, among others. It’s a fitting end to Rogers’s four-year tenure at the NSA, which was marked by high-profile intelligence leaks and his efforts to prevent them.

Brought on in the aftermath of Edward Snowden’s bombshell NSA leaks, Rogers was tasked with making sure nothing of the sort ever happened again. But he wasn’t successful.

Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems, top U.S. official says
by CYNTHIA MCFADDEN, WILLIAM M. ARKIN and KEVIN MONAHAN

  part of the article says

The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.

In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn't talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, "We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated."

If the Russians Got into Voting Machines, I Fear for the Republic
The evidence is building—if we can handle the truth.



BY CHARLES P. PIERCE
FEB 8, 2018

part of what he says:

We are inching ever closer to the revelation that the actual vote totals were hacked—some very smart people are already there, by the way—and, once that happens, I don’t know where we go from there. The Republican Party already has shown it will tolerate all manner of jacking around with the franchise in pursuit of power and its benefits for the Republican donor class. But, simply, I don’t know if either party truly has the sand to face up to the possibility that a president* was installed under those circumstances.

What are "voter registration rolls"?

And if that U.S. official was in charge of protecting them, doesn't mean she failed?

Armap
you have to register before you vote, meeting requirements like age and residency, this is done before the voting date giving the paper people time to add you to the list called
voter registration rolls
 and if you aren't registered when you go to vote - you usually don't get to vote
i am saying ususally because i don't know  the rules for every state and unfortunately they are all different

"voter registration rolls" are the log of registered voters
and obviously kept in an online form so that if they are messed with  certain voters may be removed 
and while they can re-register they can not vote until then..soo thus the problem


here's a link if you want details

Thanks, space otter, I thought it could be something like that. :)

I don't see how messing with it could help any side, unless they knew in which candidate/party they were going to vote.
