Anonymous hackers are threatening to bring down the North Korean government.

The NSA is "spying on the citizens of over 35 different countries," says the shadowy hacktivist collective

In response to the bombshell reports that the National Security Agency has been secretly amassing user information from Facebook and Google, hacker collective Anonymous has published what appears to be a trove of NSA documents. (It's unclear if they're classified or not.)

"These documents prove that the NSA is spying on you, and not just Americans," Anonymous writes in a Pastebin post. "They are spying on the citizens of over 35 different countries." The group adds that "these documents contain information on the companies involved in GiG, and Prism."

It might be best to take these with a grain of salt. As Sarah Perez at TechCrunch notes, a cursory glance "doesn't seem to indicate there's much new information in them, as related to the ongoing press coverage of the PRISM program as it stands now."
