The National Security Agency and several of its allies around the world have hijacked connections to multiple Android app stores to plant spyware on hundreds of millions of devices.

According to a top secret document leaked by whistle-blower Edward Snowden, the Google Play Store, Samsung’s app store, and UC Browser, a web browser that’s incredibly popular in China and India, were the main targets.

Samsung has denied that it is scrambling to release the Galaxy Note 5 early to grab sales before Apple launches the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The South Korean firm has also dismissed reports that claim its new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge aren’t selling well.

Samsung is reportedly investigating issues with its official Clear View case that is causing it to scratch Galaxy S6 and S6 edge displays. The company has already replaced some devices that have become damaged, but it is yet to recall the Clear View case so far.
