Big Brother Is Here - Part 2

RT has an article that breaks down the CIA leaks as to device and the capability for hacking into it.  Included are Apple, Microsoft and Android (specifically Samsung, HTC and Sony) devices.

Read it here.

These [capabilities] include, but are not limited to: air gap jumping viruses such as ‘Hammer Drill’ that are capable of infecting computers or phones that have never been connected to the internet; hacking tools that focus on removable devices such as USB drives; systems for hiding data, be it in covert disk areas or in images.


Before any tech experts gloat, WikiLeaks also alleges that the CIA has developed advanced, multi-platform malware attack and control systems that cover Windows and Mac OS X but also mixed source platforms like Solaris and open source platforms like Linux.

Pretty much everything.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
