Wikileaks Vault7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed
From the NY Times
WikiLeaks on Tuesday released thousands of documents that it said described sophisticated software tools used by the Central Intelligence Agency to break into smartphones, computers and even Internet-connected televisions...
The initial release, which WikiLeaks said was only the first part of the document collection, included 7,818 web pages with 943 attachments, the group said. The entire archive of C.I.A. material consists of several hundred million lines of computer code, it said.
The code is not being released, yet that is...
It said it was not releasing the computer code for actual, usable cyberweapons “until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the C.I.A.’s program and how such ‘weapons’ should be analyzed, disarmed and published.”
But the sheer number of zero-day exploits are enough to make bashis blush:
...its malware arsenal and dozens of ‘zero day’ weaponized exploits against a wide range of US and European company products."
It added that the products included Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, "which are turned into covert microphones”.
