The NSA not only creates, but also hijacks, malware with Quantumbot. http://www.computerworld.com/article/2871687/the-nsa-not-only-creates-but-also-hijacks-malware-with-quantumbot.html

I've read something about that months ago I think. Its not new, they've been doing it for a long time and it was reported back then I think. Not sure too but this isn't the first time that I read that about the NSA.
