Government Spies Came Up Dry, Says Gemalto

SIM card maker Gemalto, whose networks reportedly were breached by hackers from the United States National Security Agency and the UK’s GCHQ, on Wednesday said the spies got nothing. The hackers stole cryptokeys for millions of SIM cards, according to The Intercept, which cited documents released by NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
Gemalto denied any SIM cryptokeys had been stolen and pointed out that its networks holding customer and other sensitive data are isolated from one another, as well as from customer-facing networks.
