Reading up on some of the CIA leaked material is breathtaking. It seems they've had backdoors into consumer products both hardware and software for yonks. Of course you always expected a level of hacking, but not on such a mass scale.

I don't get how when VW does it, it's a court case and billions in fines. When the CIA does it..... discuss

I suspect intelligence agencies are finding it hard to obtain meaningful info from mobile phones and encrypted channels on the Internet, and by this leak are actually trying to discourage terrorists from using electronic comms but revert to face to face meetings.

Of course that would seem to imply Assange is in league with them and leaking information they want leaked, which I must admit seems highly unlikely. Or maybe they accidently on purpose somehow gave him the info to leak.

The CIA and the UK's equivalent are part of what is known as the "Deep State". The Deep state supports globalist agenda to turn select people into half-machines. While sacrificing the rest like slaughter animals. It is pathetic but the fight is on. Wikileaks, Alex Jones are the core figures in the fight against this agenda and sooner or later you will either join or like I said... the slaughterhouse.

Lots of infosec professionals are saying that there's really nothing new there.



Security experts I spoke with, however, stressed that these techniques appear to be mostly known methods — some of them learned from academic and other open conferences — and that there were no big surprises or unexpected wizardry.

In other words, the cache reminds us that if your phone is hacked, the Signal or WhatsApp messages on it are not secure. This should not come as a surprise...

If anything in the WikiLeaks revelations is a bombshell, it is just how strong these encrypted apps appear to be. Since it doesn’t have a means of easy mass surveillance of such apps, the C.I.A. seems to have had to turn its attention to the harder and often high-risk task of breaking into individual devices one by one.

- The Truth About the WikiLeaks C.I.A. Cache, New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/09/opinion/the-truth-about-the-wikileaks-cia-cache.html?_r=0)

Its's the usual thing of Assange issuing a press release that hugely overstates things, and journalists running with it because copy-and-pasting a headline to get clicks is easier than looking through 8,000+ documents to see if the original assertion stands up. Which it mostly doesn't.

Wikileaks are a bunch of *******, led by Assange who is working for Putin. You're just choosing which despot's agenda you want to be sacrificed for :rolleyes:

I agree Putin is no flower either. I am a pacifist.

BTW Not sure if you guys are watching the Wikileaks page but there is posts by the hour showing malware techniques. Notepad++ had an urgent update yesterday. Basically after you update, if Notepad++ doesn't start... your pc is hacked.
