SNOWGLOBE: CSEC analysis of suspected French spyware

Le Monde has published a report on CSEC's analysis of an e-mail spying operation that it discovered in November 2009. The operation targeted a number of organizations around the world, including a French-language media outlet in Canada. CSEC concluded that the source of the operation was probably France (Jacques Follorou & Martin Untersinger, "La France suspectée de cyberespionnage," Le Monde, 21 mars 2014).

The newspaper also published several slides from the CSEC powerpoint presentation, one of the documents leaked by Edward Snowden, on which the Le Monde reports were based.
