A new reported shared by Wiki Leaks disclosed that CIA has enough capacity to hack tech devices in order to grab information.
This new revelation made dozens of firms rushed to contain the damage from possible security weak points following the anti-secrecy organization’s revelations, although some said they needed more detailed information on what the U.S. intelligence agency was up to before they can thwart suspected, but previously hidden attacks. Reuters has suggested in its report that Tech companies must rapidly step up information sharing to protect users from prying eyes, a security software executive said on Wednesday after WikiLeaks released a trove of documents detailing the CIA‘s capacity to hack all manner of devices.
Although, Sinan Eren, vice president of Czech anti-virus software maker Avast, called on mobile software makers Apple (AAPL.O) and Google (GOOGL.O) to supply security firms with privileged access to their devices to offer immediate fixes to known bugs. On the other side, shared report of WikiLeaks says that, the biggest in the Central Intelligence Agency’s history, i-e CIA – had enough technical details for security experts and product vendors to recognize widespread compromises exist. However, they provided few specifics needed to offer quick fixes.
