NSA Hacking

I have read about the NSA tracking down people that have hacked into government systems. If the NSA hacked into a private computer would it be possible to trace their hack... possibly finding an IP address?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Setup a “honey pot” system in your network.  There are tons of informative articles on how to achieve this in order to capture people attempting to access your network systems.

I think that the bigger question here is, how come, if I access a system through hacking or cracking, its considered a crime, while when the NSA does it to all systems, they’re not in breach of the “digital privacy act’s” criminal prosecution?

    I suspect it'll be very difficult to track anything from these uber-elite government employees. I think what they do is above our level - different frequency spectrum so we'll likely never know. Have you seen this?:
