Norway and #US #Busted #Hacking Russian #Networks to #Gain #Data on #Leadership

This is the first time Norwegian hacking efforts to obtain intelligence information on Russia have been documented. According to formerly classified documents, Norway and the US have been pooling their spying efforts since 2011.

Norwegian and US intelligence services have collaborated on hacking Russian networks in order to retrieve information on Russia’s political leadership and energy policy, as proceeds from the formerly classified documents by the National Security Agency (NSA) published by The Intercept.

Previously, only a small part of the three-page document was available, but now the document has been made available in its entirety.

It was in September 2011 that Norway’s Intelligence Service (NIS) first informed the NSA that they were running espionage programs in computer networks, whereupon an agreement on data-sharing was reached. The NSA would then expand and strengthen cooperation with Norway, focusing on targets in the Russian political leadership and Russia’s management of natural and energy resources.

An annual planning meeting between the NSA and the NIS was held on March 7, 2013. Some of the topics discussed were Norway’s access to data cables, data processing and external data storage, as well as obtaining information from commercial satellites.
