Did the Germans Catch the NSA Spying on Windows Users?

•, Paul Wagenseil
That's what an article posted Tuesday (Aug. 20) on the website of the respected German newspaper Die Zeit seemed to say. But closer analysis reveals some holes in the story.

"Federal government warns about Windows 8" is the translation of the article's headline. The story goes on to say that an internal advisory memo, published by a German government standards board, suggests that the NSA may soon have access to all PCs running the latest version of Windows.

For that reason, Die Zeit states, the German federal government considers Windows 8 an "unacceptable security risk."
However, neither the newspaper, nor the memo it purports to have, offer any proof that the NSA is, or will be, spying on Windows users.
