    US and British intelligence agencies have successfully cracked
    much of the online encryption relied upon by hundreds of millions
    of people to protect the privacy of their personal data, online
    transactions and emails, according to top-secret documents
    revealed by former contractor Edward Snowden.

    The files show that the National Security Agency and its UK
    counterpart GCHQ have broadly compromised the guarantees that
    internet companies have given consumers to reassure them that
    their communications, online banking and medical records would be
    indecipherable to criminals or governments
