      NSA Used 'Angry Birds' to Spy on Users

      If you’re a fan of the Angry Birds game, you may have been spied on, new leaked documents reveal.

      The Guardian reported on Monday, based on documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden, that the National Security Agency (NSA) and its UK counterpart GCHQ have been developing capabilities to take advantage of "leaky" smartphone apps, such as the wildly popular Angry Birds, that transmit users' private information across the internet.
