Hackers have defaced the Angry Birds website with an image entitled Spying Birds, featuring an NSA logo. The hack came after the NSA admitted that it had obtained data released by the game's developer Rovio.
Documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden have revealed that the National Security Agency and its British counterpart have been developing capabilities to exploit 'leaky' smartphone apps like the popular 'Angry Birds' game to collect user data.
Finnish game developer Rovio – creators of the wildly successful Angry Birds - has acquired the rights to the game “Casey’s Contraptions” with plans to launch a re-worked version under a different title this summer.
The popular mobile game Angry Birds will soon be coming to game consoles, Facebook and desktop PCs, Digital Journal learned in an interview with the game's developer Rovio. A sequel will also be launched in 2011.
