Earlier this year it was revealed by Julian Assange Wikileaks, via their Vault 7 release, that the CIA created a secondary NSA surveillance system—one with less oversight than that of the NSA. It was also discovered that the CIA could implant virtual forensic fingerprints on computers and frame someone for a crime they didn’t commit, through a project known as UMBRAGE. Furthermore, Wikileaks revealed how the CIA could remotely take over the controls on vehicles and cause undetectable assassinations.
Now, Wikileaks has nailed another nail in the CIA coffin with more releases on the Vault 7 files—this time called DARK MATTER.
Here’s the breaking report…
Some of the latest leaks from Julian Assange’s Wikileaks Vault 7 included the following projects:
“Sonic Screwdriver”: A project that is a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting” allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick “even when a firmware password is enabled”. The CIA’s “Sonic Screwdriver” infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.
“DarkSeaSkies”: An implant that persists in the EFI firmware of an Apple MacBook Air computer” and consists of “DarkMatter”, “SeaPea” and “NightSkies”, respectively EFI, kernel-space and user-space implants.
“Triton”: MacOSX malware, its infector “Dark Mallet” and its EFI-persistent version “DerStarke” are also included in this release. While the DerStarke1.4 manual released today dates to 2013, other Vault 7 documents show that as of 2016 the CIA continues to rely on and update these systems and is working on the production of DerStarke2.0.
“NightSkies 1.2”: a manual “beacon/loader/implant tool” for the Apple iPhone. Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.
The only question left to ask is how long will the American public allow the CIA to control them before something is done to stop it?
