Microsoft worked hand-in-hand with the United States government in order to allow federal investigators to bypass encryption mechanisms meant to protect the privacy of millions of users, Edward Snowden told The Guardian.

According to an article published on Thursday by the British newspaper, internal National Security Agency memos show that Microsoft actually helped the federal government find a way to decrypt messages sent over select platforms, including Outlook.com Web chat, Hotmail email service, and Skype.

Not surprised, but boy, the NSA is starting to is worrying me. I don't think it'd be safe to assume someone's not affected because they don't live in the US; no, the NSA won't even be satisfied with only spying on their fellow Americans, they take a right to every person's data as well!
