Wikileaks does a filedump of CIA hacking techniques. Folks looking for a tie-in to the Trump scandals can start here:
Another program described in the documents, named Umbrage, is a voluminous library of cyberattack techniques that the C.I.A. has collected from malware produced by other countries, including Russia. According to the WikiLeaks release, the large number of techniques allows the C.I.A. to mask the origin of some of its cyberattacks and confuse forensic investigators.
Pretty tame! Let's go to a Russophilic site (linked by Drudge!) for a table-pounding take:
Wikileaks: CIA 'Stole' Russian Malware, Uses It to ‘Misdirect Attribution’ of Cyber Attacks
"Russian" hacking? It could have just as easily been the CIA
Oh, brother. So when the Intelligence Community concluded that Russian hackers took down the Hillary and the DNC it coulda maybe been a CIA op? What's this now, an anti-Hillary faction plotting (with an election-eve boost from Comey!) to halt the Hillary Express?
Go long paranoia - lefties will be freaking out about this.
UPDATE: The theory lives! However...
Of course, there’s nothing particularly controversial about the CIA accumulating malware. Prior to the publication of the so-called “Vault 7” files, it was widely accepted that the CIA—like the National Security Agency—frequently uses hacking tools, including those not created by American coders. Any number of cybersecurity experts familiar with attacks by “state actors” would have gladly admitted as much, even before the WikiLeaks release.
While reporting in December that a U.S. cybersecurity firm was “highly confident” that Russia was behind the DNC attack, the Daily Dot noted that, “Attribution with regards to cyberattacks is difficult and often problematic,” adding: “Malware can be stolen; it can be re-packaged and sold on the black market; and it can be used as well to throw off investigators.”
That these new CIA documents help illustrate how nebulous cyberthreat attribution can be is a good thing. But ultimately, they offer no proof that the CIA had any hand in hacking the Democrats.
