When it was reported in Der Spiegel that the UK Government Communications Headquarters had been spying on a major Belgian telecommunications company, it was not known how they did it exactly. As it turns out, the GCHQ hacked into Belgacom by using fake LinkedIn pages. The fake pages would then redirect tricked employees to sites containing malware, which would deceive them further into downloading malicious software. This malicious software seemingly had the capability to break through Belgacom security. What the agency wanted with the intelligence remains unclear, though it is certain to be revealed soon enough.
