It was leaked by Laura Poitras, the film maker - NY Times

On Saturday, Der Speigel reported that it was able to review “top secret” N.S.A. documents in Mr. Snowden’s possession dated September 2010 that showed that the agency had infiltrated European Union computers in two locations to monitor telephone conversations, e-mails and other documents.

The magazine said that surveillance devices were installed in the European Union’s offices in Washington and that the organization’s computer networks in Brussels had been infiltrated.

The lead writer of the article was Laura Poitras, 49, a documentary filmmaker who emerged as the pivotal connection between Mr. Snowden and writers for The Guardian and The Washington Post who published his leaked documents about government surveillance. She has shared bylines with reporters of those publications in their coverage of the N.S.A. leaks.
