    Edward Snowden or better known as Snowden said that the leakage of PRISM and the FISA command related to the action of data collection by NASA aimed at revealing what he believed was excessive action by the government to monitor the activities of US citizens.

    The Snowden scandal has caused US foreign relations with several countries in Europe such as France and Germany to be disrupted.
    at present, Russia provides protection to Snowden with the record Snowden will no longer move to "hurt" the United States.

    Then who is actually Snowden? and as great as Snowden, let's discuss one by one.

    Over the past year, we have more documents and violations related to Snowden. Since 2013, when Edward Snowden left, there have been thousands of very sensitive articles leaked out, "said Bill Evanina, Chair of the National Counter Intelligence and Security Center, as reported by the Associated Press, June 4, 2018.

    On June 5, 2013, The Guardian released the first article of a secret document leaked by Edward Snowden, which contained the United States government recording millions of American mobile phones. Then the Washington Post published how the British and US intelligence agencies accessed world telephone and internet personal information.

    What is the greatness of Edward Snowden, and what interesting facts from a snowden :

    1. Tap on US people's telephone calls

    Snowden's confidential documents revealed that the NSA had obtained a permit from a US court that allowed them to tap telephone conversations of all US citizens without exception. Verizon, as one of the largest cellular operators in the US is known as the party that provides this interception network. But over time, it turned out that not only Verizon, almost all US cellular operators were 'forced' to cooperate with the NSA.

    2. Uncover the secrets of GCHQ

    Not only revealed the NSA 'ulcers', Snowden also revealed disgraceful actions from the British intelligence agency, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). According to the leaked document Snowden, GCHQ also runs intercept operations like the NSA. They even mentioned tapping internet fiber optic networks in various parts of the world. GCHQ also shares intelligence data with the NSA.

    3. The NSA spies on the leaders of the country

    The NSA is said to tap around 122 mobile heads of state. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Brazilian President Dilma Roussef, former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, and even former Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) were also one of the victims of the NSA wiretapping.

    4. NSA hacked Google and Yahoo data centers

    The PRISM operation was informed not in accordance with NSA's expectations. So the NSA was 'playing rough' by hacking data centers owned by Google and Yahoo. They reportedly worked with people in the company to carry out this action.

    5. The NSA impedes communication between countries

    The NSA is said to block and store various telephone call data between countries suspected of being able to cooperate to threaten US security. One of them is telecommunications data carried out by Afghanistan and the Bahamas. This operation was coded MYSTIC.

    What is the right nickname for Edward Snowden, a former contractor of the United States National Security Agency (NSA) who revealed the practice of the American Government spying on its citizens, other countries and international leaders? Traitor or hero? Low-class system analysts or even trained spies?

    - Meaning of heroes according to Snowden "Being a hero does not mean giving priority to service to the government above all," Snowden said. "Being a hero is knowing when to protect your country, knowing when to protect your constitution, knowing when to protect all your citizens, from violations and disruption of enemies. Opponents faced also do not have to be another country." This response was a sharp response to a statement by US Secretary of State John Kerry who spoke earlier on NBC on Wednesday morning. Kerry said in the interview, "Heroes did not run away to Russia. They did not seek asylum in Cuba. They did not seek asylum in Venezuela. They fought here." In the interview about Snowden, Kerry called the former NSA contractor a coward. "He is a traitor. He betrayed his country."

    that is some interesting facts from Snowden that you certainly know a lot about, maybe some of you don't know who he is, but in the perspective of an IT like me, he is the one who really understands the wrong and correct meaning "hacking" he does, while this is all that I can share with you, hopefully it can be an understanding that there are still smarter than smart, respectful greetings from me and see you in other interesting articles.
