Those worries that governments are trying to undermine security software? They're well-founded. The Intercept has learned that both the US' National Security Agency and the UK's Government Communications Headquarters have been reverse engineering security software, such as antivirus tools and encryption programs, to look for flaws that can be used in surveillance hacks. Some of the targets in recent years include Kaspersky Lab's security suite (sound familiar?), Acer's eDataSecurity and Exlade's CrypticDisk. GCHQ also deconstructed numerous other commonly available programs, including vBulletin's forum software and popular server management tools.
