CIA-made malware? Now antivirus vendors can find out
Thanks to WikiLeaks, antivirus vendors will soon be able to figure out if you have been hacked by the CIA.
On Tuesday, WikiLeaks dumped a trove of 8,700 documents that allegedly detail the CIA’s secret hacking operations, including spying tools designed for mobile phones, PCs and smart TVs.
WikiLeaks has redacted the actual source code from the files to prevent the distribution of cyber weapons, it said. Nevertheless, the document dump — if real — still exposes some of the techniques that the CIA has allegedly been using.
