Vault 7: Wikileaks dumps CIA hacking materials by Augustus Disslekure - Tue, 07 Mar 2017 13:15:30 EST ID:hVJLEOjs No.156494 Ignore Report Quick Reply

>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 presidential election.

>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.

>"Year Zero" introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.

>Since 2001 the CIA has gained political and budgetary preeminence over the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). The CIA found itself building not just its now infamous drone fleet, but a very different type of covert, globe-spanning force — its own substantial fleet of hackers. The agency's hacking division freed it from having to disclose its often controversial operations to the NSA (its primary bureaucratic rival) in order to draw on the NSA's hacking capacities.

>By the end of 2016, the CIA's hacking division, which formally falls under the agency's Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other "weaponized" malware. 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.

It's not a program. It's a collection of programs.

And it seems that CIA agents and private corp. employees working for the CIA happily shared these top secret tools with each other up to the point where it won't take long for various other governments and criminal organizations to use these tools.

Scientists have been warning about these kinds of cyber "security" based on offense instead of defense for years, and no one listened.

It would be beautifully ironic if the CIA is unable to track down who leaked all of this info.

Also, I didn't know that the CIA and the NSA were in a cyber arms race. Just goes to further show how pathetic the American government, and specifically the executive branch is. Seems like everything these agencies do is 100% for budget justification and often directly conflicts with the American people's goals and will for rational spending of our tax dollars.

On Tuesday WikiLeaks began releasing a series of encrypted documents dubbed “Vault 7,” detailing the surveillance activities of the CIA.

As part of the release, the organization posted to Twitter a password for “Vault 7” that read as follows: “SplinterItIntoAThousandPiecesAndScatterItIntoTheWinds.”

That password was a subset of words spoken by President John F. Kennedy 54 years ago, only a month before he was assassinated:


“I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind,” were his exact words, according to a Kennedy administration official who spoke with The New York Times for a report published three years after JFK’s death.

Speaking in a History Channel program several years ago, Samuel Halpern, author of “The Assassination of JFK,” claimed that the threat stemmed from Kennedy’s frustration with the CIA, which he believed was becoming a “state within a state.”

It also originated, in part, with the then-president’s vehement opposition to Operation Northwoods, a CIA-bred plan that called for “the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities” — all to manipulate the American people into supporting a war against Cuba.

The PSYOP is the FSB convincing you that the CIA is a bigger threat to you than the intel agencies of adversarial states, and tricking Americans into covering up and denying FSB cyberattacks because they believe that any acknowledgement of such an action amounts to calling Trump illegitimate by giving weight to other (false) accusations that Russians tampered with voting machines.

He's a braindead retard. He probably thinks that globalism is bad for the global elite and good for the middleclass - which is fucking retarded, because the multinational corporations and global elite can hire armies of lawyers to get around "anti-globalism" laws to import and export.

The middleclass and the small companies that make up most of the economy cannot hire armies of lawyers to import and export.

Anti-globalism strengthens the multinationals ironically. They'll get their way anyway. Anti-globalism helps them maintain a monopoly position, and helps them erode the middleclass away until only upperclass and lowerclass remains.

In fact I do think there's a "civil war" of such going in not just within separate intelligence agencies, but within the same ones.

Unfortunately I think the structure of the CIA, and the NSA for that matter is that it's highly compartmentalized so that one hacking group works in a cell" but only knows what they need to know.

I want to go after those things that Assad sees as his personal power base. I want to scare Assad. I want to go after his presidential car. I want to bomb his offices in the middle of the night.

Why should I believe this? Why would they? I don't think the Chinese Communist Party has anything to gain from murdering or torturing random American civilians or trying to invade the continental United States or some such thing, assuming we lived in a universe where that was at all feasible.

>the only people in any reasonable position to do something about it is the CIA and those tentacles you mentioned.

Yes obviously every state needs to know what's going on in the world in case they need to react to it. That doesn't justify...most? of the CIA's activity, or at least a very large chunk of it. I'm not made safer when they overthrow governments. I am put in more danger by people who now have legitimate reasons to resent the country whose government I live under and now have more reason to try to blow up the subway when I'm in it.

>You're just caught up thinking about this politically.

Uh, no, I'm caught up in thinking about this like any thinking person should be thinking about it, and that's in terms of what's good for humanity and doesn't lead to the murder of innocent civilians and the propping up of totalitarian regimes for the sake of the twisted chess games of some dork in a suit in the Pentagon who decided that some more poor foreign people had to die for the profits of the United Fruit company or Halliburton or Exxon Mobile, among other spurious reasons.

And that's a shame, but the CIA doesn't do that unilaterally, they do it on instructions from presidents. Again, this goes back to the CIA being a tool.

>Uh, no, I'm caught up in thinking about this like any thinking person should be thinking about it, and that's in terms of what's good for humanity and doesn't lead to the murder of innocent civilians and the propping up of totalitarian regimes for the sake of the twisted chess games of some dork in a suit in the Pentagon who decided that some more poor foreign people had to die for the profits of the United Fruit company or Halliburton or Exxon Mobile, among other spurious reasons.

The way to stop that isn't to destroy the CIA or to blame them, it's to hold presidential administrations accountable for the orders they issue to the CIA and other agencies. We shouldn't be blaming the tool for how it's used, we should be blaming the people using it.

Also, refusing to recognize foreign intelligence services threats to your country doesn't help poor foreign people abroad from dying, it just makes you less safe.

Well that's easy. Here's one example, easy to find and fairly recent. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/15/technology/yahoo-hack-indictment.html

I suppose now you're going to explain how breaking into the records of an American company and stealing the information of who knows how many Americans doesn't count.

Oh, here's another!

And another!

I could do this all day, the fact is that the FSB actively and continuously tries to penetrate the U.S. government, U.S. companies, etc for the purposes of espionage. You can pretend they don't all day long, but thank Christ that your ideas aren't taken into account as part of this countries national security or counterintelligence policies.

your first example ended up being a PR stunt riding on the back of the russian hacker fad. Yahoo hacked them selves. Or that was another email provider that did that. either way. Vault 7 shows government info groups have the ability to leave faked evidence during system intrusions. but bitch please you don't need wikileaks or the CIA to tell you that. Should be basic learning for internet people.

The most troubling aspect to me is that foreign or domestic, these clandestine organizations are still staffed by people, who interpret shit wrong and fuck shit up.
Even if our intentions were good, there's always the chance we could get Harry Tuttle'd like that one guy from Poland who got black bagged and hauled off to Macedonia because they thought he was someone else And out intentions are fucked.
One day we'll be walking down the street and we'll get pulled into an alley and dosed with polonium because we get mistakenly identified as a blogger who was critical of someone. And that's just something that can happen now like heart disease or touching the wrong kind of caterpillar
