Wikileaks Unveils 'Vault 7': "The Largest Ever Publication Of Confidential CIA Documents"

Post by daniel » Wed Mar 08, 2017 2:02 pm

ZeroHedge wrote:A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘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.”

WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, "would rock the technology world", the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.”

Another profound revelation is that the CIA can engage in "false flag" cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant. Discussing the CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group, Wikileaks' source notes that it "collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.

"With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from. UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques."

As Kim Dotcom summarizes this finding, "CIA uses techniques to make cyber attacks look like they originated from enemy state. It turns DNC/Russia hack allegation by CIA into a JOKE"

Did not most of us presume that EVERYTHING is monitored?

Did not most of us at least suspect that worldwide government has been corrupted from day 1?

I am not surprised in the least.

I love the scenes in V for Vendetta where the TV viewers are simply saying "bollocks" to the whole lot of it.

It has been my experience that most people DON'T know, and those that DO, simply DON'T CARE. That is why "SHARE" buttons are plastered everywhere... the single, largest violation of privacy on the Internet.

SHARE = I consent to be monitored AND here's who else to monitor!

Most people still trust governments and even worship them--at least their leaders; Kings and Queens/Presidents and First Ladies. Ken Wilber's study showed that less than 1/10th of 1% of the people have sufficient background to understand that there is even a problem with our political system. That is why the NWO is not concerned about any global movement to remove them from power.

Poor word choice on my part... "we" was meant as the visitors here - likewise the "us."

It seems that I wondered of your intent when posting that link - here - maybe I presume too much in that I thought that most visitors - here - would have already heard/read, or otherwise known of these things: CIA/FBI and all their friends internationally.
