Hey there! Logged in for the first time in forever, just to express my surprise that you're still here derailing political threads. For your sake I hope you're being paid for it these days.

My suggestion to everyone who has interest in the topic: ignore replies that seem like strangely contentious peripheral nonsense. Intentional or not, they play to the hands of those who would rather "Vault 7" never be discussed.

On to the topic:
Anyone saying these documents don't disprove the DNC-sponsored theory of 'Russian hacking' is plainly reaching to preserve the notion that Russia hacked the DNC. Take away partisan bias and the logic is clear: this document release does not give any indication who was behind the hacking but unequivocally proves that evidence pointing to Russia could easily have been fabricated. In fact it suggests that leaving a false trail would be part of any hacking attempt, regardless of the perpetrator. This leaves us with zero reliable evidence to blame Russia.

I'm surprised no one is discussing the impact this could have on e-commerce and banking. If these CIA-developed 'cyber weapons' make it into the hands of criminals (as Wikileaks claims to be inevitable) then I imagine a lot of people will be going back to paper accounting. Unless the tech companies can plug the security holes quickly...

Very well said. I didn't even think of other potential applications like e-commerce and the likes.

Don't know how old you are but think that time was probably 50's and 60's. We've gone to orwellian hell since then.

Would the people's representatives in government (Congress) do anything about the abuses to the citizens. The answer is no, of course. This is not some new revelation. They dropped the Patriot Act on us. Already bought.

The CIA seems to have a sense a humor about all this. Think this "Escape & Evasion Survival Kit" will be useful? Coded message to current hackers to gtfo?

First level, don't do your banking with a smart phone or on some public WiFi in a Walmart of coffee shop.

Tell your leaders to stop this unnecessary attack on ATS...

It's about time people realize how what kind of a threat the CIA represents not just to people of the United States, but to all people.

What? Really? I don't mess with any public hotspots, however I am an "advance smartphone banker", lol (trademarked), I do all my banking thru the USAA mobile banking app, from check pics to waving my phone at a register to pay for items. Ugh....

With phone companies pushing wireless phones and data plans, the CIA has a big grin on it's face. Spying gets so much easier.

To be honest, we thought that this is the way forward. From our very up bringings and technological progress, we strived for efficiency and ease in our techonological paradise, however at the expense of so much spying and intelligence gathering? I think thats an upsetting realization.

Whenever they come forward telling that they do not collect data from American citizens ever without court orders is called, non denial, denial because they know that if asked about it the information is either classified or can never be found without prof.

They are their own government, they act on their own accord and all they have to do is deny, deny, deny.

While destroying evidence that nobody knows what is and what it say.

Dangerous precedent that in the hands of corruption within the spying agencies is a power on its own.

Or already compromised. With all the hacking taking place these days on regular citizens, it should not come as a surprise that key members of our Government could have been hacked, and potentially blackmailed into sponsoring bills that would have otherwise rejected.

This is truly scary stuff, and I really hope something can be done about it before its too late.

Is all good, until corruption takes over and then we the people become victimized, then we most think, who or from within the enemy truly is our enemy.

Im 32. But was at least fortunate enough to grow up with vhs, the buzz of a modem connecting and my dad not bringing his work home with him.


Agreed, the Orwellian state has been in place since the 80's . They just didnt have the tech to get into our homes quite yet

Ugh. The CIA was working on a plan to take over cars. They could cause them to crash, if they wanted to do an assassination.

I think if they can actually do this we will be reading the obituary of lil Kim very soon.
