  • "Vault 7." CIA Hacking codes Hacked

    Is it time to reign in the CIA and the twenty or more other secret agencies that spy on each of us every day for no apparent reason and without any justifiable reason and without any constitutional right to do so?

    Just saying….Our founding fathers would have revolted already.
    The covert hacking program taps into Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which can be turned into covert microphones, the website says.

    "By the end of 2016, the CIA's hacking division, which formally falls under the agency's Center for Cyber Intelligence had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other "weaponized" malware," Wikileaks said in a statement on its website. "Such is the scale of the CIA's undertaking that by 2016, its hackers had utilized more code than that used to run Facebook.

    "The CIA had created, in effect, its 'own NSA' with even less accountability and without publicly answering the question as to whether such a massive budgetary spend on duplicating the capacities of a rival agency could be justified."

    Yes. But, how? Trump doesn't seem to be interested in tearing down the police state.

      You have that right. It's just the opposite, the police state, (the inside the beltway intelligence police state) is trying to take Trump down.

      This is huge (pun intended).
      The leak proves that the CIA has the ability to hack other nations systems and plant documents. It was just reported on the national news.
      They hack can hack I-phones, tablets, televisions, and yes, plant misleading information on other nations archives.
      It's time to drain THAT SWAMP!

        This may wake up the people, but I doubt it...

        While many of the attack technologies had been previously discussed at cybersecurity conferences, experts were startled to see evidence that the CIA had turned so many theoretical vulnerabilities into functioning attack tools against staples of modern life. These include widely used Internet routers, smartphones, and Mac and Windows computers.

        In the case of a tool called “Weeping Angel” for attacking Samsung SmartTVs, WikiLeaks wrote, “After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a ‘Fake-Off’ mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on, In ‘Fake-Off’ mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.”

        The CIA reportedly also has studied whether it could infect vehicle control systems for cars and trucks, which WikiLeaks alleged could be used to conduct “nearly undetectable assassinations.”

        And a specialized CIA unit called the Mobile Devices Branch produced malware to control and steal information from iPhones, which according to WikiLeaks were a particular focus because of the smartphone’s popularity “among social, political diplomatic and business elites.” The agency also targeted popular phones running Google’s Android, the world’s leading mobile operating system.

        Wikileaks said it redacted lists of CIA surveillance targets, though it said they included targets and machines in Latin America, Europe and the United States. The anti-secrecy group also said that by developing such intrusive technology — rather than helping tech companies patch flaws in their products — the CIA was undermining efforts to protect the cybersecurity of Americans.

          Looks like The Deep State and The Fourth Estate have combined forces to unseat Trumpy aided by free kicks from Trumps narcissism and possible madness. These leaks might be fire support from a friendly entity, FSB/Russian mob/who knows? Putting The Deep State on notice that they aren't untouchable.

            The only true "Off mode" is to simply not be connected.

            Limit your connections to the web, and control them vigilantly.

            That's nothing new really.

              Nothing new, but the first confirmed evidence that it's our own government manipulating our devices to watch us.
              And you.

                actually not you

                but maybe other posters on this forum. Just because the same tech to collect foreign intel is usuable against you does not mean it is used against you.

                Or would you rather we get rid of the CIA or NSA

                    Maybe Trump will change his mind and pardon Snowden. At one point I thought Obama was hanging around to bring Trump down now I think he may be hanging around to coverup crimes.

                      In 2013 Obama promised to stop the NSA data collection program, but under his plan it is not slated to end until Dec. 2017.
                      The problem is the US Government has 17 intelligence agencies, at least that is what they admit to...
                      http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-...112-story.html

                      Presidents and Congressmen comevand go, directors of these agencies also come and go, but the agents embedded inside these agencies do not.
                      They have secret budgets and operations that have little or no oversight by any officials elected by the people.
                      A few years ago one of these super secret agencies NRO gave a NASA a few of their old outdated satellites that they had replaced the SR-71,
                      When NASA used them they were absolutely stunned by the capabilities and the technology. Much more sophisticated and better than anything NASA had including the Hubble.
                      And they now have better stuff.

                        Ahh so you think they are spying on ya. Sorry cant provide proof they aren't. (fyi cell phone data is not private and neither is email both are bussines documents and in the case of cell phone you freely broadcast the information through the air and have no expectation right to privacy. well depending on what state you live in)


                        So feel free to continue you campaign to gut the US intel organizations

                          Where in the constitution is the government given the right to gather all of our data?
                          Or to spy on us?

                              Where does it say it cant.

                              Supreme Court rulings have numerous times said this information is no protected by privacy since you put it in a public space. (couldn't think of a better term)
