An illustration picture shows logos of Google and Yahoo connected with LAN cables in Berlin

An illustration picture shows the logos of Google and Yahoo connected with LAN cables in a Berlin office October 31, 2013. The National Security Agency has tapped directly into communications links used by Google and Yahoo to move huge amounts of email and other user information among overseas data centers, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. The report, based on secret NSA documents leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden, appears to show the agency has used weak restrictions on its overseas activities to exploit major U.S. companies’ data to a far greater extent than realized.
