Only 8,700 odd files on how the CIA can hack your electric toothbrush.

Confirms what most logical people assumed - if the Russians were responsible for the hacking, the last to be suspected would be the Russians ... unless the Russians, wanted us to think that, but then what if they knew that we knew, and they really wanted us to think that they knew that we knew that they knew ...

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, revealing the breadth of the agency’s ability to hack smartphones and popular social media messaging apps such as WhatsApp.

A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first part in a series of leaks on the agency that 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.”

According to the cache of documents released, the CIA's Mobile Devices Branch (MDB) has developed multiple tools and systems to hack popular smart phones and remotely order them to send both location data as well as audio and text communications.

The phones’ cameras and microphones can also be remotely activated at will.

Such tools and techniques allow the CIA to hack social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide and Cloackman before encryption can be applied, WikiLeaks claims in the statement on their website.

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

Don't forget under the Five Eyes arrangements we are doing the same thing here in collaboration with them. Every time Brandis or Keenan or Turnbull says something about metadata or surveiling terrorists and Labor agree with them more of your privacy rights disappear. 

The way that Russia is cutting a swathe through Western countries security systems, and China builds their massive cyber warfare machine, is this necessary just to try to keep up with them?

That's wrong. Neither the CIA or anyone else can hack end-to-end encryption tools like Signal or Telegram. Not even Signal or Telegram can hack Signal or Telegram.

They can, however, bypass encryption by taking control of the phone.




“The CIA/WikiLeaks story today is about getting malware onto phones, none of the exploits are in Signal or break Signal Protocol encryption,” said Open Whisper Systems in a response on Twitter. “The story isn’t about Signal or WhatsApp, but to the extent that it is, we see it as confirmation that what we’re doing is working.”

The only people who may need to worry are those who might be the target of a total-device takeover, an exploit largely limited to nation-state actors. At that point, you’ve got far bigger concerns than end-to-end encrypted chat. That Signal and WhatsApp are still viable also doesn’t lessen the broader implications of the CIA’s secrets being in the wild.
