NSA could have full access to your cellphone

It's not just the National Security Agency that's using hackers to do some scary snooping this time. The U.K.'s Government Communications Headquarters and the NSA worked together to hack Gemalto, a Dutch SIM card manufacturer.

The story originally came from The Intercept, a site that publishes NSA documents originally leaked by Edward Snowden.

The Intercept reports that the pair targeted key staff members in the firm, whose clients include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint, in an attempt to figure out their passwords.

The NSA and GCHQ's target was SIM card encryption keys.
