Sebastian Hahn was shocked to learn his activities were on tap via a database controlled by the NSA. Today we begin to get the names of specific targets,via Germany. What has been obtained is part of the source code for the NSA X-KEYSCORE program, and names of targets have been extracted from the NSA database.

Cryptome links an automated translation of the article of which Jake Appelbaum is a co-author. Jake was a founder of the TOR project. http://cryptome.org/2014/07/nsa-tor-de.htm

Linux Journal learned that they were not only a target, but a selector. If your read Linux Journal, you're a target for further surveillance.

"DasErste.de has published the relevant XKEYSCORE source code, and if you look closely at the rule definitions, you will see linuxjournal.com/content/linux* listed alongside Tails and Tor. According to an article onDasErste.de, the NSA considers Linux Journal an "extremist forum". This means that merely looking for any Linux content on Linux Journal, not just content about anonymizing software or encryption, is considered suspicious and means your Internet traffic may be stored indefinitely." http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/nsa-linux-journal-extremist-forum-and-its-readers-get-flagged-extra-surveillance

Although the brief video attached is in German, you should be able to get the gist of it even without language skills
