This gets more and more James Bond-like every day.

The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world that allows the United States to conduct surveillance on those machines and can also create a digital highway for launching cyberattacks.

While most of the software is inserted by gaining access to computer networks, the N.S.A. has increasingly made use of a secret technology that enables it to enter and alter data in computers even if they are not connected to the Internet, according to N.S.A. documents, computer experts and American officials.Report: NSA Accesses Computers Through Radio, With 100,000 Computers Affected [nytimes.com]

This involves physically inserting hardware bugs in computers, and they do it 20,000 times a year?

Their network of agents must be huge.
