Vault 7 Wikileaks documents are out! Here's the TOP 5 SECRETS revealed so far. What is Vault 7? Oh just smart TV & iPhone spying, CIA fake Russian hacking and killer cars, you know... the usual.
Hey everyone, this is Joe In General, your resident reason and evidence enthusiast. Wikileaks has JUST released its highly anticipated Vault 7 series, over 8000 pages of highly classified CIA documents on its "Global Hacking Force" and already there are some revelations that are absolute doooooozies. Lets take a look at the Top 5 to emerge so far... #1 is going to BLOW YOUR MIND.
#5 The CIA has the ability to break into iPhone and Android handsets and very likely your computer too.
Now this one isn't a HUGE revelation as Edward Snowden already blew that one wide open a few years ago, however new this information has double confirmed the CIA has been creating all kinds of malware to spy on almost every piece of electronic equipment you own. That includes iPhones and Android handsets and computers running Windows, macOS and Linux. So pretty much every computer then...
If the malware can do what WikiLeaks claims, it could be used to remotely control your devices, turning them on and off and being able to collect a TRUCK LOAD of your data – including your locations, text messages, everything heard by a microphone or.. get this... seen by the camera.
#4 Your securely encrypted messaging app may be not be secure at all.
If the CIA can hack into your phone, then encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram are vulnerable. If your operating system has been compromised, then the messages can be read before they're encrypted and sent. WikiLeaks claims that this has happened, potentially meaning that messages have been compromised even if all of the usual precautions have been taken.
#3 The CIA could use smart TVs to listen in on conversations that happen around them.
A CIA program called "Weeping Angel" allows intelligence agencies to install special software that allows TVs to be turned into listening devices – so that even when they appear to be switched off, they're actually on.
That's just one of the technologies created by the Embedded Devices Branch, the CIA division at the centre of many of the leaks.
#2: The CIA can perform cyber attacks and make it look like another country did it.
According to WikiLeaks, the CIA's Remote Devices Branch runs a project called UMBRAGE, which collects and maintains a large library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other countries, including Russia. One particular attack technique is the ability leave behind fake digital "fingerprints" that make it look like a CIA initiated cyber attack was done by someone else. At this early stage, its unclear if this is WikiLeaks’ interpretation of one thing the CIA could do, or if there’s a specific place in the document where the CIA mentions this use of UMBRAGE.)
This is HUGE. The ability to create a digital false flag calls into question anytime in recent history that the CIA has accused another country of hacking. "We have proof that Russia hacked the U.S election".... ahhhhhhhh OK???
And finally #1...
The CIA explored hacking into cars and crashing them.
WHAT THE @#$%???!!!
Many of the Vault 7 documents reference tools that appear to have dangerous and unknown uses. One file, for instance, shows that the CIA were looking into ways of remotely controlling cars and vans by hacking into them.
With self driving cars becoming more prevalent every day, does this not freak you out just a little?
In an unproven piece of speculation, Wikileaks notes: "The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations,"
HOLY S**TBALLS.... (picture of Michael Hastings)
