Le Monde article on NSA spying on France telecom networks based on Snowden leaks.
“According to the documents retrieved from the NSA database […] telephone communications of French citizens are intercepted on a massive scale.”
“The techniques used for these interceptions appear under the codenames ‘DRTBOX’ and ‘WHITEBOX’. Their characteristics are not known either. But we do know that, thanks to DRTBOX, 62.5 million data were collected in France and that WHITEBOX enables the recording of 7.8 million elements. ”
