Posted: 09-Sep-2013 [Source: Aljazeera America]

[US, British agencies had teams to crack security on iPhones, Blackberry and Android devices, Der Spiegel reports.]

"The National Security Agency (NSA) has the ability to crack protective measures on iPhones, BlackBerry and Android devices, giving it access to users' data on all major smartphones, according to a report Sunday in the German news weekly Der Spiegel. The NSA has reportedly been able to access smartphone contacts, call lists, SMS traffic, notes and location information."

"With respect to smartphone tapping, Der Spiegel cited internal documents from the government agency and its British counterpart Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in which the agencies describe setting up dedicated teams -- referred to as "working groups" in the Der Spiegel report -- for each type of phone as part of their effort to gather intelligence on potential threats, such as terrorists."
