Russian Navy’s “aggressive” activity near underwater cables worries US

The US has long been known to have tapped undersea cables for intelligence collection. One early example is a US program in the 1970s called Operation Ivy Bells, which attached a listening device to Soviet communications cables in the Sea of Okhostsk linking facilities in the Kuril Island chain, recording unencrypted communications on tapes that were retrieved by divers monthly. The program ended in 1981 after a National Security Agency employee sold information about the program to the Soviets for $35,000.
