France fears Mossad cyber attack

They cyber attack which targeted the contact network of former France president Nicolas Sarkozy in May 2012 was originally blamed on the United States. US officials, however, denied allegations and instead pointed the finger at Mossad. The newspaper claims that these revelations come from Edward Snowden, the US fugitive who fled the country after revealing details of the NSA spying on world leaders. French agents have gone to the US to demand an explanation to the NSA’s attempt to breach communications systems in the Elysee Palace. The NSA branch TAO (Tailored Access Operations) has denied its own involvement, as well as accusations that it gave permission to its intelligence clients to hack the network. In a statement they said: "TAO intentionally did not ask either Mossad or (Israel's cyber intelligence unit) ISNU whether they were involved as France is not an approved target for joint discussions." French authorities have interpreted the statement as suggesting that Mossad may have been behind the attacks.
