Submitted by McGruber
McGruber (1417641) writes "According to documents seen by Germany’s Der Spiegel, the US National Security Agency (NSA) successfully cracked the encryption code protecting the United Nations’ internal videoconferencing system. NSA first breached the UN system in the summer of 2012 and, within three weeks of initially gaining access to the UN system, the NSA had increased the number of such decrypted communications from 12 to 458.

On one occasion, according to the report, while the American NSA were attempting to break into UN communications, they discovered the Chinese were attempting to crack the encryption code as well."
