U.S. intelligence data show that China and Russia are listening to phone conversations of President of the United States Donald trump. Reported by the New York Times, citing sources.
Interlocutors of the edition claim that foreign intelligence agencies are trying to exploit the information they learn from personal conversations of the President. Intelligence is looking into how trump thinks, what arguments convinced him who he listens to. In particular, China collects this information to prevent further escalation of a trade war. According to the source, Chinese spies even made a list of those with whom trump regularly says to use them for influence on the President of the United States.
The newspaper writes that the Tram has two official mobile phone prepared by the national security Agency of the United States: one for Twitter and other applications, the other for calls. The President agreed to abandon Android because they are considered more vulnerable, and began to use iPhones. Every 30 days trump needs to change both to a new phone, but he does it rarely, citing the inconvenience. It is assumed that the White house staff will set up your new device exactly the same way, but to restore a backup of the old phone is impossible, because this can lead to the transmission of any malware.
According to the interlocutor of the edition, the President of the United States there is a third, personal phone, which is no different from millions of other iPhones in the world. Trump continues to use their device to store their contacts. The President also calls on personal mobile in case if you do not want to call was in the White house.
The source noted that the lack of technical knowledge on the part of the President reduces the risks of eavesdropping. So, he does not use email, so the possibility of leakage of his correspondence is close to zero. This applies to text messages, the exchange of which is disabled on his official phones.
