Dutch Intelligence Service Tries to Hack Whatsapp and Telegram

Dutch intelligence services are attempting to hack the encryption of Whatsapp and Telegram, said Dick Schoof, the National Coordinator of the Fight Against Terror (NCTV).  He said that this is necessary in order to know whether terrorists use such encrypted networks.  Schoof added that hacking into these programs is difficult.  He said that the intelligence services are not interested in the messages of other people.  It has also become known that the German intelligence services have a budget of 150 million Euro to try to decipher the encryption of services such as Whatsapp and Telegram.
