NSA Said to Exploit Heartbleed Bug for Years

Check out the original article

If an organized hacker ring sabotaged security standards and major tech infrastructure for years, compromising the security of hundreds of millions of people and many governments including our own (and potentially causing billions of dollars in damages when these exploits were found by others), and exploited any flaws they found or created to spy on millions of people in the world including our own citizens, what should they be charged with? Mass criminal sabotage, cybercrime, cyberwarfare, and computer fraud? Obviously. Terrorism? Maybe, but not quite. At what point do the NSA’s actions qualify as treason? I’d say they’re well past that point.
