WikiLeaks Offers to Help Tech Companies Protect Against CIA Hacking

HeadlineMar 10, 2017
Assange wiki

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Thursday he will help high-tech companies protect customers against CIA spying. The offer came two days after WikiLeaks published thousands of documents describing CIA programs to hack into both Apple and Android cellphones, smart TVs and even cars and trucks. Assange spoke in an online news conference from the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.

Julian Assange: “The Central Intelligence Agency lost control of its entire cyberweapons arsenal. … Now, this is a historic act of devastating incompetence to have created such an arsenal and stored it all in one place and not secured it.”

After headlines, we’ll speak with Cindy Cohn of the Electronic Frontier Foundation about the largest leak of classified material in CIA history.
