The Coolest Crime Has Just Been Commited

NSA, we promise to listen to you
I woke up this morning to the sweetest irony I've been exposed to all year.  The NSA (the all seeing, all knowing, big brother department of the US government which has us all in it's cross-hairs globally) has been hacked, they have been spied on and their privacy has been violated!

Their malware is apparently being auctioned off for a small fortune in Bitcoin and without doubt some sort of loud and resounding message is being sent here. 

This is a natural follow up to my post yesterday on censorship I reckon.
