Catastrophic Leak: Wikileaks Publishes CIA’s Secret Hacking Tools (Inc.)
WikiLeaks today published thousands of documents that it claims are from the CIA’s arsenal of hacking and cyber-espionage tools, calling this leak the “largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency.”
According to Wikileaks, the cyberweapons program allowed the CIA to hack into iPhones, Android phones, and classic computers, and undermine the encryption of popular “secure” smartphone apps such as WhatApp and Signal. It also allowed the spy agency to commandeer people’s Samsung smart televisions and transform them into spying equipment by using the device’s built-in microphones to listen into conversations.
