NSA to investigate NASDAQ hack

Several sources are reporting that the National Security Agency (NSA) is looking into the breach of the company that runs NASDAQ experienced back in October of 2010.

Bloomberg News interviewed former head of U.S. counterintelligence in the Bush and Obama administrations, Joel Brenner, who stated “By bringing in the NSA, that means they think they’re either dealing with a state-sponsored attack, or it’s an extraordinarily capable criminal organization.”

It's being reported that other U.S. Federal Govt agencies (FBI, Secret Service) are assisting as well.
