WEB Notes: “Hacking” by the CIA is nothing new. The government through the NSA has been doing this for years. We have been told over and over again so at this point, how can anyone be surprised? It is a fact, in the data centers of communication giants there is government equipment designed to tap into phone calls, it has been that way for years and that is first hand information.
Leaked secret documents have revealed that the CIA has been targeting and compromising home, office, and public wireless routers for years in an effort to carry out clandestine surveillance.
The documents, which could not be immediately verified, are part of an ongoing series of leaks released by the website WikiLeaks, revealing the work of the CIA’s elite hacking unit, dubbed the Engineering Development Group.
Among the dozens of files are user and installation guides, manuals, and other “secret”-marked maps and charts that reveal several hacking tool suites, which allow the agency to conduct targeted exploitation of networks and computers.
