#Vault7: WikiLeaks reveals ‘Marble’ tool could mask CIA hacks with Russian, Chinese, Arabic

WikiLeaks’ latest batch of documents, named ‘Marble’, details CIA hacking tactics and how they can hamper forensic investigators from attributing viruses, trojans and hacking attacks to the spy agency. The tool was in use as recently as 2016.

The third release, which contains 676 source code files for the agency’s secret anti-forensics framework, is part of the CIA’s Core Library of malware, according to a statement from WikiLeaks.

Russia, eh? Interesting.

Latest WikiLeaks release shows how the CIA uses computer code to hide the origins of its hacking attacks and ‘disguise them as Russian or Chinese activity’

WikiLeaks has published hundreds more files today which it claims show the CIA went to great lengths to disguise its own hacking attacks and point the finger at Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

The 676 files released today are part of WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 tranche of files and they claim to give an insight into the CIA’s Marble software, which can forensically disguise viruses, trojans and hacking attacks.

WikiLeaks says the source code suggests Marble has test examples in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi (the Iranian language).

    If Obama didn’t know, it just proves he was the Dem’s token Negro that WAS stupid and clueless as a Constitutional Law teacher that brought in illegals EO’s to by-pass Congress because the President can’t make Laws.
    The Dem’s though that Hillary would win and so did the Liberals that use our Moron drama coach Justin to complete Soro’s plan to flood the West with unskilled muslims refugees and migrants while the ANTIFA urban terrorists beat-up those opposing it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4f63249384a76f195523b6652980149468c4e7458b509d30c46c5de0007d4e2e.jpg

  • As if the Russians and Chinese haven’t thought of that.

    Or you could just ensure that elected officials the world over have “p@ssword” as their password.

  • A lot of interesting spy tools in Vault 7. For example there’s a tool that actually writes to your CD/DVD rom. I assume it will only write to rewritable discs, but who knows? Rewritable discs are hard to find these days. Time to put read only protection on software and hardware as well, until you actually have to do a legitimate write (for example on a blank disc).
