"According to various top-secret documents provided by Snowden, FoxAcid is the NSA codename for what the NSA calls an "exploit orchestrator," an Internet-enabled system capable of attacking tar get computers in a variety of different ways. It is a Windows 2003 computer configured with custom so ftware and a series of Perl scripts. These servers are run by the NSA's tailored access operations, o r TAO, group. TAO is another subgroup of the systems intelligence directorate.
The servers are on the public Internet. They have normal-looking domain names, and can be visited by any browser from anywhere; ownership of those domains cannot be traced back to the NSA."
