But it is Tik Tok we have to worry about
COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark's foreign intelligence unit has shared raw data from information cables with the U.S. National Security Agency, which could have given the NSA access to Danish citizens' personal data and private communications, according to state broadcaster DR.
The government suspended the head of the Danish Defence Intelligence Service and three other officials from their posts and put them on leave on Monday following criticism and accusations of serious wrongdoings from an independent board overseeing the unit. But it did not give many details of the case.
DR said late on Thursday, quoting sources, that the case is linked to the sharing of large quantities of information with the NSA.
