Image result for Edward Snowden: Latest NSA leak is 'not a drill'

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden warned on Twitter that “this is not a drill” after a group of hackers released Friday what they claim to be documents detailing the surveillance tools used by the National Security Agency for its hacking program that can break into millions of Microsoft Windows computers and may have been used to break into the Middle East financial network.

The tools, revealed by the Shadow Brokers, are designed to hack into Microsoft Windows operating systems and some of the documents suggest that the agency used them to target the SWIFT banking system, a worldwide network of financial institutions.

Snowden, who was granted asylum in Russia since 2013 after he leaked secret information from the NSA’s surveillance programs, tweeted that these NSA “exploits affecting many fully-patched Windows systems have been released to the wild. NSA did not warn Microsoft.”
