The NSA Can Use Angry Birds to Spy on You

In these modern times, everything with a screen is susceptible to a cyber attack, but who would have thought Angry Birds would be used as a tool to invade private information? The National Security Agency was recently outed by Edward Snowden as having the capabilities to use apps, one of which is Angry Birds, to find out some information about whoever is playing. They are able to figure out your location, which websites you may have visited and perhaps crack your passwords.

As billions of users have downloaded Angry Birds, who knows who have been targeted. The NSA stresses they are only seeking out viable threats to the nation. Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds, has stated they have not been releasing or providing user data to anyone.
