    In the long-awaited release of the first series of “Vault 7” leaks, WikiLeaks has completely outdone themselves. With a total of 8,761 CIA documents, WikiLeaks has provided us with “the entire hacking capacity of the CIA.”

    WikiLeaks had announced last night that they would be releasing an encrypted torrent file that would contain the information regarding ‘Vault 7.” You can follow the embedded link here to access the torrent. The passcode to access the downloaded torrent is: SplinterItIntoAThousandPiecesAndScatterItIntoTheWinds.

    The initial press conference regarding the release was to be held at 8:00 am, Eastern time. However, according to their Twitter posts, WikiLeaks apparently encountered a variety of complications during the unveiling.

    After posting that the Press Release was under attack, WikiLeaks posted on Twitter that the video press conference would be rescheduled. In a separate Tweet, they provided the link to the torrent, along with the passphrase.

    And while the press conference was moved to a different time, the release of ‘Vault 7, Part 1, Year Zero’ was made as promised.

    This first excerpt in the Vault 7 series has been dubbed ‘Year Zero’ which reveals the details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program”. Included in this hacking program is what has been referred to as the CIA’s “weaponized exploits” against a wide range of U.S and European company products such as Apple’s iPhone, Android, Microsoft Windows and Samsung smart t.vs, which can be turned into covert microphones.

    The released documents detail the CIA’s methods for bypassing or defeating encryption, antivirus tools and other security features purposed at protecting privacy.

    WikiLeaks explains that the CIA had “lost control of its arsenal.”

    “‘Year Zero’ introduces the scope and direction of the CIA’s global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of “zero day” weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones,” WikiLeaks explained during a press release.

    The purpose of the newest WikiLeaks release, according to the organization was to spark “public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyber weapons.” Furthermore, they believe that such capabilities need to “urgently be debated in public, including whether the CIA’s hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency.”

    Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the CIA stated, “We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents.”

    WikiLeaks has redacted the details of some of the names, locations, and targets that are identified in the released documents.

    Due to WikiLeaks 100% accuracy rate, as they have released 10 million documents in the last 10 years, with not even one being fake or false, we can assume the accuracy of this latest release. Unfortunately, for the public, this would indicate that the CIA has the ability to hack into any of your electronic technology at any given moment and retrieve any data they want, despite encryption.

    With that being said, just as WikiLeaks stated in the press release, it is high time that we started questioning the capabilities of our government’s intelligence agency. There has to come a moment in time where a line is drawn in the sand, which prevents them from intruding upon any privacy we have left. If we don’t start questioning the intentions of our government, it won’t be long before everything that we say, we do, or we communicate to others becomes open territory for all to take.
