WikiLeaks publishes 'entire hacking capacity of the CIA': ずくなしの冷や水


WikiLeaks publishes 'entire hacking capacity of the CIA'

WikiLeaks has published what it claims is the largest ever batch of confidential documents on the CIA. More than 8,000 documents were released on Tuesday as part of ‘Vault 7’, a series of leaks on the agency.

A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’

In a statement WikiLeaks said ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”

WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

The source of the information told WikiLeaks in a statement that they wish to initiate a public debate about the “security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons.”

Policy questions that should be debated in public include “whether the CIA's hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency,” WikiLeaks claims the source said.

The FAQ section of the release yields some key details that highlight the true extent of the leak: firstly, the information was “obtained recently and covers through 2016”.

The time period covered in the latest leak is between the years 2013 and 2016, according to the CIA timestamps on the documents themselves.

Secondly, WikiLeaks has asserted that it has not mined the entire leak and has only verified it, asking that journalists and activists do the leg work.

"Those who demonstrate journalistic excellence may be considered for early access to future parts," Wikileaks said in the leak.

In WikiLeaks analysis of ‘Year Zero’ they detailed “Weeping Angel”, a surveillance technique that which infests smart TV’s transforming them into microphones.

An attack against Samsung TV’s used “Weeping Angel” in cooperation with MI5, placing them into a “Fake-Off” mode, recording conversations even when the device appears to be off.

The release came after a planned press conference suffered a cyberattack, according to the whistleblowing organization. WikLeaks has since rescheduled its press conference.
