Today, Wikileaks released a lot of very damning information about the CIA on the web. According to Wikileaks, the CIA has been using our devices, smart tv’s, computers, etc. to listen to our conversations. There is a ton of information that was released by Wikileaks today and yet they claim to have even more that they are waiting to release. Things are heating up people!
The information in what WikiLeaks said were 7,818 web pages with 943 attachments appears to represent the latest breach in recent years of classified material from U.S. intelligence agencies.
Security experts differed over how much the disclosures could damage U.S. cyber espionage. Many said that, while harmful, they do not compare to former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013 of mass NSA data collection.
“This is a big dump about extremely sophisticated tools that can be used to target individual user devices … I haven’t yet come across the mass exploiting of mobile devices,” said Tarah Wheeler, senior director of engineering and principal security advocate for Symantec.
