NSA hacked emails of two Mexican Presidents
October 21 , 2013
It was recently revealed that NSA hacked the emails of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieta prior to his election. Reports suggest that the spying on the government of Mexico runs even deeper.
Recently leaked documents prove that the spying agency reported back in 2010 saying that it "successfully exploited a key mail server in the Mexican Presidencia domain within the Mexican Presidential network to gain first-ever access to President Felipe Calderon's public email account."
This operation entitled "Flatliquid" also spied on "diplomatic, economic and leadership communications" by hacking into the accounts of cabinet members in Mexico.
Another document revealed that an operation called "Whitetamale" enabled NSA to gain intel on drug cartels after going through emails by Mexican officials in Public Security Secretariat.
