On Thursday, WikiLeaks released ‘Vault 8,’ a series of documents detailing how the CIA developed code to impersonate Russian anti-virus giant ‘Kaspersky Labs.’
RT reports: “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.
“If the target organization looks at the network traffic coming out of its network, it is likely to misattribute the CIA exfiltration of data to uninvolved entities whose identities have been impersonated,” WikiLeaks said in a statement. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/11/wikileaks-drops-vault-8-cia-wrote-code-impersonate-russian-anti-virus-giant/
