On Tuesday, WikiLeaks released the full hacking capacity of CIA in a striking 8,000-plus page disclosure the anti-secrecy website contends is “the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency. This comes after the CIA declined to comment on WikiLeaks document dump.
The 8,000-plus document and files were obtained from an “isolated, high-security network” at the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley. To be precise, it was an 8,761 document and files released as ” Vault 7 Part 1″ and title “Year Zero.”
The CIA spokesperson came forward and told Fox News that.
“We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents.”
The document includes information on CIA-developed malware that bears names such as “Assasin” and “Medusa,” intended to target iPhones, Android phones, smart TV’s and Microsoft, Mac and Linux operating systems, among others.
According to WikiLeaks, an entire unit in the CIA is devoted to inventing programs to hack data from Apple products. Does this mean President Trump “wiretapping” claims are valid? It seems the CIA has all means required to wiretap any phone. If this is CIA’s doing, I wonder who gave the order to have Trump’s offices wiretapped. Obama was by then the president and the commander-in-chief, and he had the power to give that order.
Some of the remote hacking programs can allegedly turn numerous electronic devices into recording and transmitting stations to spy on their targets, with the information then sent back to secret CIA servers. One document appears to show the CIA was trying to “infect” vehicle control systems in cars and trucks for unspecified means.
WikiLeaks gave a hint that the capabilities of this hacking program revealed in Tuesday disclosure could have even darker uses than simply spying.
The release stated that.
“It would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.”
What do you think of all this?
