The British MI6 secret service had to suspend operations of its field agents due to imminent exposure in “hostile” countries such as Russia and China, caused by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s leaks, the Sunday Times reports.

The Sunday Times alleges that both Moscow and Beijing have succeeded in cracking top-secret encrypted documents obtained from Snowden and learnt MI6’s methods.

The British media outlet cited unnamed officials in Prime Minister David Cameron’s office, the Home Office and national security services.

An official in PM Cameron’s cabinet said that as far as he knew there was “no evidence of anyone being harmed,” although allegedly Britain had been deprived of the opportunity to get the information it wanted.
