Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks
on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named "Vault 7" by
WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential
documents on the agency.
The first full part of the series, "Year Zero", comprises 8,761
documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated
inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virgina. It
follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French
political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012
Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal
including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized "zero day" exploits,
malware remote control systems and associated documentation. This
extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred
million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity
of the CIA. The archive appears to have been circulated among former
U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one
of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive.

I suppose I should be interested. 😴
Anybody who needs Wikileaks to "discover" that the CIA et al are using
every available cybertool and weapon is just too naive for words.
It's called "opinion" because it's not knowledge.
