WikiLeaks disclosure could hurt CIA’s ability to protect Americans
Without acknowledging any breach, federal intelligence agency CIA has warned that recent WikiLeaks disclosure could hurt the intelligence community's ability to protect Americans against terrorists and other potential adversaries.
A few days back, Wikileaks exposed 8,761 documents that allegedly showed how CIA exploited vulnerabilities in operating systems like iOS and Android to hack into devices used by millions of Americans.
CIA declined to acknowledge any breach, but warned that it U.S. public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure because it might affect their ability to protect Americans.
Issuing the warning, the federal agency added, “Such disclosures not only jeopardize U.S. personnel and operations, but also equip our adversaries with tools and information to do us harm.”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer also said that it was their policy as a government not to confirm the authenticity of any type of disclosure or hack.
Meanwhile, Apple and Google have claimed that they have fixed several of the vulnerabilities or security holes in their operating systems that were reported by WikiLeaks in the dump of CIA documents.
