Hackers recreate the NSA Spying Kit using junkyard items.



Mr. Edward Snowden revealed last year the NSA’s Advanced Network Technology catalog, a list of the tools provided by the NSA to its agents for spying purposes. Now some hackers and security experts have used this leaked information to make similar tools using available junkyard electronics.

The leaked catalog was examined by Michael Ossmann and his team. And they found out that many of the items were very easy to recreate at a fairly low price. He has already build a Software-Defined-Radio (SDR) which can record and transmit data from a target PC using a Kickstarter project, and this can be bought for just $300.
