Don't get me wrong, I'm not in favor of any of it under the auspices of the NSA. Especially not domestically.

But there's no way they're doing this on anything resembling a majority of hardware out there. I mean, outside of the risks of being discovered, what does it gain them? Once they have access to your pipe through your isp and content providers there's not much else they need from your computer... unless you specifically catch their interest.
Dude, they are doing it to everyone. Hence the data center in utah. Seriously, it's happening.
