WikiLeaks has begun publishing thousands of documents it claims to have taken from the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence.
In what it called the “largest ever publication” of stolen CIA documents, WikiLeaks’ released documents that appear to describe hacking tools used by the agency. The organization is calling the leaks “Vault 7,” and said Tuesday’s document dump is only the first part of a series. The more than 8,700 documents and files published Tuesday are being called “Year Zero.”
WikiLeaks claims the leaks contain several hundred million lines of code showing the CIA has a dedicated team to develop hacks.
