Washington Post (Aug 30) - "U.S. spy agencies mounted 231 offensive
cyber-operations in 2011, documents show" by @BartonGellman & @nakashimae:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-spy-agencies-mounted-231-offensive-cyber-operations-in-2011-documents-show/2013/08/30/d090a6ae-119e-11e3-b4cb-fd7ce041d814_story.html

> under an extensive effort code-named GENIE, U.S. computer 
> specialists break into foreign networks so that they can be put 
> under surreptitious U.S. control. Budget documents say the $652 
> million project has placed “covert implants,” sophisticated
> malware transmitted from far away, in computers, routers and
> firewalls on tens of thousands of machines every year, with plans
> to expand those numbers into the millions.

...

> The NSA designs most of its own implants, but it devoted $25.1 
> million this year to “additional covert purchases of software 
> vulnerabilities” from private malware vendors, a growing 
> gray-market industry based largely in Europe.
