British Agency Is Behind Belgacom Hacking

Sep 20 2013, 7:03am CDT | by , in News | Technology News

According to the latest leaks by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, the British agency (GCHQ) was behind the hacking of Belgacom, Belgium’s biggest telecommunications firm. Instead of the Americans it was the British who were to blame this time around.

British Agency Is Behind Belgacom Hacking

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has been caught red-handed thanks to new information revealed by Edward Snowden. The proof in the form of documents shows that Belgium’s suspicions were misplaced. Belgium had suspected that the NSA was behind all the cyber-spying that had been going on in their midst. But the fact of the matter was that all intelligence gathering had been done by the British via the GCHQ. 

After much indecision finally the verdict was in. The Brits were the culprits and not the Yankees. It is a fact that behind the GCHQ lay the long arm of NSA surveillance experts. Still the responsibility for implanting malware that looked into the private documents of Belgacom officials rested squarely on the shoulders of the GCHQ.

The British agency had started a scheme termed Operation Socialist. The ultimate objective was to penetrate the infrastructure of Belgacom and garner information that could allow more able manipulation of the semi-government agency. A sub-group of the agency, Belgacom International Carrier Services (BICS) was especially being spied into since the past three years or so. 

By the way, the specialized technology behind the spying activities came courtesy of the NSA. Several members of the working staff at Belgacom were seduced to sites that allowed their confidential information to be compromised. The Belgian Head of State, Elio di Rupo has vehemently denounced this attack on the sovereignty of his country by the GCHQ.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
