CIA operations may be disrupted by new Wikileaks’ data release – BBC News

Current spying campaigns run by the CIA could be disrupted, say experts, after more data on the agency’s hacking techniques was released by Wikileaks.CIA code that obscures malware’s origins was detailed in the latest release by the whisteblowing site.The code could be used to create a ”signature” for CIA malware, said one virus hunter.The information is part of a larger cache about CIA hacking tools that started to be released last month.The release of the information could be ”one of the most technically damaging” said Nicholas Weaver, a computer security researcher at the University of California in Berkeley, in an interview with the Washington Post.”It seems designed to directly disrupt ongoing CIA operations and attribute previous operations,” he said.
