controllerAccording to a TIME magazine section – The Swamp – “Intelligence agencies are secretly infiltrating online games like World of  Warcraft and Second Life.”

“The National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency have secretly  infiltrated the virtual worlds of online multi-player games like World of  Warcraft and Second Life, where they use avatars to recruit informants and seek  out potential threats, according to a new report.”

I heard on the radio that NSA admits to the invasion.  As the article reports, “An NSA document said spying on the World of Warcraft “continues to uncover  potential Sigint value by identifying accounts, characters and guilds related to  Islamic extremist groups, nuclear proliferation and arms dealing.”

Are you ready for this – “With so many agents from CIA, FBI, and DIA operating in Second Life, a “deconfliction” group was needed, according to one document, to avoid collisions  between spies working for the same team.”

Oh really!
