SECURITY CIA Hacking & Vault 7: Your Guide to the Latest WikiLeaks Release
The Rain Maker tool allowed the CIA to collect system data and specific files from a computer. The tool could be inserted onto a USB drive (or other removable media) and triggered once a user opened the portable version of VLC Media Player on the drive.
The captured data would be encrypted on the removable media, ready to be decrypted at a later time. This implies that for this exploit to work a CIA agent must be able to get physical access to the media drive. The Rain Maker User Guide says that it would work only on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, or 8.1. Although, as the guide is dated March 2015, there is the potential that Rain Maker had been extended to support Windows 10.
