By Raïssa Robles – Do you think that text messages through Globe and Smart Telecom were spy-proof. Did you believe the explanation that mobile phone text messages are next to impossible to intercept because one message is relayed in several packets. Did you imagine the leaks of Edward Snowden have nothing to do with the Philippines.
Time to reconsider all of those things. According to Cory Doctorow, a Canadian journalist and Internet freedom fighter, he pointed out in a post yesterday in popular site Boing Boing that a spy inside one of the Philippine telecom firms has been collecting and forwarding our mobile phone traffic to the US National Security Agency.
