Almost two months after releasing details of 23 different secret CIA hacking tool projects under Vault 7 series, Wikileaks today announced a new Vault 8 series that will reveal source codes and information about the backend infrastructure developed by the CIA hackers.


thehackernews.com...

Wikileaks have started releasing Vault; 8 The Source code for Hive shows that CIA uses fake digital certificates for malware authentication, impersonating Kaspersky Labs ls to hide its activities from network monitors on targeted organisations.

Just thought i would share this as it is not up on ATS yet..

:-)

The CIA should be called the Criminal Industry Administration, drug smuggling, hacking, initiating coups, I imagine the list is endless

So, when the Department of Homeland security announced that it was going to dump all of their software created by Kaspersky Labs on September 14th, was it really because the Russians caught DHS impersonating them? LOL!

It would be cool if we had anybody among fellow ATS users who could clarify some ongoing intricate IT issues for us so we could understand more and discuss with comprehension. As for me, I would be very grateful since I don't have a clue.

What issues? I'll give it a stab, although I'm not a professional IT person - just into all of it out of personal interest. I do have a pretty nifty homelab setup though.

A few Dell servers (R720, R230, T330) and a bunch of firewall stuff (pfsense, Firebox T30, SonicWALL)

How did wikileaks get this and what makes them so sure its from the CIA? How do we really know who controls all this? The articles by The hacker News site link to several other articles. I may not have gone through enough of them but I can't ever see where there's proof it came from the CIA. What did I miss?

The more I read, the more interesting it gets. From The Hacker News


Some of the leaked documents even suggest that the CIA was even developing tools to remotely control certain vehicle software, allowing the agency to cause "accidents" which would effectively be "nearly undetectable assassinations."


Keep those old cars. Pre-1986.

WL havee stated that this information did not come from a state. It was from an insider.. They spend time verifying their material with computer forensics and other means. WL have yet to publish false information. I am unable to link to WL due to ATS terms and conditions.

I am sure that if you have a look you will be able to find it in its original source..

I'm reading through WL now. There's so much information and every time I follow another link, I get sidetrack on yet another interesting topic. But, to be honest, I don't trust WL any more than I do any other source. Just more people with agendas.

Trust it or not. WL is the only one of only a handful of journalist sites that publish objective verfied information. You have the ability to make your own mind up based on that.

Remember. The truth has no agenda..

WikiLeaks says it has published the source code for the CIA hacking tool ‘Hive,’ which indicates that the agency-operated malware could mask itself under fake certificates and impersonate public companies, namely Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab.

The CIA multi-platform hacking suite ‘Hive’ was able to impersonate existing entities to conceal suspicious traffic from the user being spied on, the source code of the malicious program indicates, WikiLeaks said on Thursday.

The extraction of information would therefore be misattributed to an impersonated company, and at least three examples in the code show that Hive is able to impersonate Russian cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab, WikiLeaks stated.

Soo.. if the CIA can impersonate foreign companies, one can wonder if this trick was used to provide "proof of Russian meddling" ?
In theory they could impersonate anyone, make a cyberattack on themselves.. go cry to CIANews (CNN), about how evil those pesky hackers are.

Sounds like the pathetic CIA

If it's out there via wikileaks and the source is an "insider" then it is logical to conclude that the agency wants it out for reasons that are unclear and concealed.
