Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

National Security Letter to the keymaster

The FBI would not go directly to Mark Zuckerberg or Eric Schmidt. Just go to whomever is in charge or has access to the server and demand the private keys and access passwords with the letter that says if you even mention it to any lawyer you will go to jail forever.

Do they audit all the servers to see if they have FBI/NSA malware backdoors?

No one mentioned Verisign, Digicert, or the rest.

I don't believe someone showed up in the CEO's office. Maybe not all the hackers were chinese. And physical access suffices - and that can be from a lowly technician or even janitor.
