- The Great Seal bug was hidden in a copy of the Great Seal of the United States, presented by the Soviet Union to the United States ambassador in Moscow in 1946 and only discovered in 1952. The bug was unusual in that it had no power source or transmitter, making it much harder to detect – it was a new type of device, called a passive resonant cavity bug. The cavity had a metallic diaphragm that moved in unison with sound waves from a conversation in the room. When illuminated by a radio beam from a remote location, the cavity would return a frequency modulated signal.
- The United States Embassy in Moscow was bugged during its construction in the 1970s by Soviet agents posing as laborers. When discovered in the early 1980s, it was found that even the concrete columns were so riddled with bugs that the building eventually had to be torn down and replaced with a new one, built with U.S. materials and labor.

I remembered one story regarding the World War 2, the battle of Midway.
The US at that time already broke the communication code of the Japanese Army.
And they were certain that the Japs are planning an offensive somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (this happens some time after Pearl Harbor).
The US knew the target was an island which was given the code "AF" by the Japanese.
US then analysed the map, and suspected that AF was the island Midway.
But they could not be certain.
So US concoct a clever plan.
They knew the Japs was also listening to their radio communication.
And so the US transmitted an info, mentioning that that Fresh Water Tanks are to be ordered as Midway had no natural water supply.
The US listened after transmitting it.
2 days later, US listened to a Japanese radio communication saying "AF has no water"
Then the US was certain.
They prepared and they won the Battle of Midway, as 4 Japanese carriers sunk after air attack by the US.
