CIA’s ‘woefully lax’ security allowed the ‘Vault 7’ data breach
Posted June 17, 2020
- A new report into how WikiLeaks revealed the CIA’s tools for hacking Macs slams the security agency’s “unacceptable” lack of security over its own systems.
- The report confirms that between 180GB and 34 terabytes of information were leaked, but the investigators still can’t be more precise because of inadequate security on the systems involved.
- It notes that it’s only because WikiLeaks published the data that the CIA knew it had been stolen.
