NSA Disguised Itself As Google To Spy

If this report is accurate, the NSA actually disguised itself as Google to spy on people. Let's face it, with the NSA's track record, this is totally within the realm of possibility.

The technique is particularly sly because the hackers then use the password to log in to the real banking site and then serve as a "man in the middle," receiving requests from the banking customer, passing them on to the bank site, and then returning requested info to the customer -- all the while collecting data for themselves, with neither the customer nor the bank realizing what's happening. Such attacks can be used against e-mail providers too.
