Most decryption is not done by methods used in war, but instead the NSA undermined cryptographic standards and then utilized the weaknesses they had implanted into the standards to decrypt the intercepted information. Aside from transmission interceptions, some information is taken directly from company servers. The first revelation was in June of 2013 when it was revealed that Verizon had given its database of all its calls to the United States government. However, this information was not taken unwittingly as Verizon had full knowledge of their decision. Many other companies knew that information was being taken, but had no choice in the matter as a secret court was assigning orders to reveal information without the use of a proper warrant.

However, making personal computers and the web more widely available is not the solution to solving the problem of the digital divide. Computers are now cheaper than they have ever been, and there are some Internet service providers who are willing to provide their services free of any monetary cost. It should be noted that people who choose to use these types of services must give up certain privacy rights and be bombarded with advertising from any company the internet service provider chooses, in order to benefit from this "free" access.
