U.S. secret service spied on and offline computers

The technologies is part of the Quantum and uses radio waves

National Security Agency of the United States (NSA) has installed spy software and hardware in 100,000 machines worldwide, not 50,000 as claimed previously inform "Mashabal."
This allows the Agency to conduct observations, even when the machines are offline, ie without internet connection. This is clear from exported from the former secret police collaborator Edward Snowden documents.
"Bugs" are small radio transceivers are placed secretly in computers from special agent then send information over a distance of up to 8 miles to the mobile station NSA size of a large suitcase.
And because the technology works with radio waves, special service has access to hacked machines, even when they are completely offline. Traditionally it was thought that the most effective way to protect your computer with sensitive information simply to interrupt the Internet connection. Thanks to these small beetles, however, this method is not completely secure.
The technology is part of a program code-named Quantum. Agency used it to spy on Chinese hackers, Russian military networks, Mexican drug cartels and computers in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and India, as well as commercial institutions within the European Union, according to the "New York Times".
Perhaps the biggest revelation is that the technology has been used in Stuxnet against a cyber attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. This is the first time that particular NSA program is linked to the attack that out of control nuclear centrifuges in the country.
And so far the details of Quantum were in the public domain. In November of leaking PowerPoint slide NSA became clear that the secret service has been hacked 50,000 computers worldwide. Anonymous sources said, however, before the "Times" that the number is actually 100,000.
