WikiLeaks to give info on Central Intelligence Agency hacking techniques to tech companies
"Year Zero", Wikileaks writes, "introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits" against vulnerabilities in smartphones, computers, and Samsung smart TVs.
USA intelligence agencies believe the emails were hacked by Russian Federation as part of a coordinated influence campaign to discredit Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and help President Donald Trump, a Republican, win.
The CIA has so far not commented directly on the authenticity of the leak, but on Wednesday it suggested that the release had damaged national security by helping its adversaries "with tools and information to do us harm".
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said yesterday that his organisation would provide technology companies with exclusive access to Central Intelligence Agency hacking tools unearthed by the whistle-blowing website to allow them to patch software flaws.

Apple first dismissed the majority of the listed iPhone vulnerabilities in a statement last night, and now Google and other firms are following suit. These are vulnerabilities that are unknown to the vendor, and have yet to be patched. It took Cisco four weeks to release a patch, which amounted to just four lines of code and ultimately didn't work, according to Cui. The WikiLieaks documents describe ways to get information in those apps on Android devices but only after gaining full control of those phones. This tool allegedly allows government agencies to place Samsung TVs into "fake-off mode", that allows conversations to be recorded even when the television appears to be switched off.
Google Pixel, which has the latest Android version, should be safe from the CIA's exploits, Google says.
Cisco - whose devices were also targeted - says that this severely limits the ability of engineers to plug the holes described in the documents.
Nearly 80 percent of users are now on a version of iOS 10, says Apple.

Judge Andrew Napolitano said he wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into a "disturbing" collaboration between Samsung and British intelligence to use televisions to spy on Americans.
"And there are questions as to how useful this collaboration will be considering that United States intelligence officials say much of the data and documents published detailed techniques that are over two years old, a lot of the software has already been outdated and those flaws have been fixed".
One of the documents even discussed hacking vehicle systems.
Robert Graham, a researcher with Errata Security, said most of these hacks are simply methods to "trick you into installing their software".
