Yahoo Inc has furtively developed custom software in order to search incoming emails from customers that reveals specific information provided by the US intelligence authorities, as per the people that are acquainted with the matter.
The organization conformed to an ordered US government request, examining a numerous number of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of FBI or National Security Agency, added by the three former employees along with a fourth person related to the event. Some surveillance and security experts said this speaks about the first case to surface of a US based Internet company that agrees with the intelligent agency’s request via seeking all arriving messages, instead of examining messages or scanning available number of accounts in the real-time scenario.
It is not recognized what data insight authorities were searching for, they only want Yahoo to hunt for the specific set of characters. That could mean an email or a phrase, added by the sources, who don’t want to be identified.
