As it turns out, former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden didn’t just take documents during his time at Booz Allen Hamilton in 2013; he also grabbed some while working for Dell in April 2012. Snowden worked for Dell from 2009 until early 2013.

According to Reuters, which cited “US officials and other sources familiar with the matter,” Snowden now appears to have begun exfiltrating information a year earlier than previously believed. Reuters’ sources also said that Snowden took documents pertaining to “eavesdropping programs run by the NSA and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), and left an electronic footprint indicating when he accessed the documents.” Those documents could include previously published information Ars reported on concerning the secret British spy agency.
