NSA Helped British Spies Find Security Holes In Juniper Firewalls (The Intercept)

The plot thickens and Edward Snowden tweets "@JuniperNetworks, this is the moment to launch a #ManhattanProject to deliver the most secure appliances on Earth."
"A top-secret document dated February 2011 reveals that British spy agency GCHQ, with the knowledge and apparent cooperation of the NSA, acquired the capability to covertly exploit security vulnerabilities in 13 different models of firewalls made by Juniper Networks, a leading provider of networking and Internet security gear.

The six-page document, titled “Assessment of Intelligence Opportunity – Juniper,” raises questions about whether the intelligence agencies were responsible for or culpable in the creation of security holes disclosed by Juniper last week."
