The September issue of Wired Magazine has a big Edward Snowden feature. Snowden still has unrevealed secrets and he shares one in the new Wired magazine. A NSA program called MonsterMind - uuhh, sounds scary.
Cradling the American flag on the cover, Snowden tells WIRED's James Bamford: “I told the government I’d volunteer for prison, as long as it served the right purpose…I care more about the country than what happens to me. But we can’t allow the law to become a political weapon or agree to scare people away from standing up for their rights, no matter how good the deal. I’m not going to be part of that.”
Snowden also tells WIRED about a secret NSA program called MonsterMind that not only has the capability to detect incoming cyberattacks but also the ability to counterattack with no human intervention at all. He explains that it's a huge problem because the initial attacks are often routed through computers in innocent third countries: “These attacks can be spoofed...You could have someone sitting in China, for example, making it appear that one of these attacks is originating in Russia. And then we end up shooting back at a Russian hospital. What happens next?”
