U.S. identifies suspect in major leak of CIA hacking tools
The Washington Post ^ | May 15, 2018 | Shane Harris

Posted on 05/15/2018 2:30:29 PM PDT by Brown Deer

Joshua Adam Schulte, who worked for a CIA group that designs computer code to spy on foreign adversaries, is believed to have provided the agency’s top-secret information to WikiLeaks, federal prosecutors acknowledged in a hearing in January. The anti-secrecy group published the code under the label “Vault 7” in March 2017. It was one of the most significant and potentially damaging leaks in the CIA’s history, exposing secret cyberweapons and spying techniques that might be used against the United States, according to current and former intelligence officials.

Meh, vault 7 was a CIA collection of tools and techniques where they could DO cyber attacks and hacks and blame it on some other country.

Im glad this frame up tool was exposed and there is no legitimate use for it. This crap is how we get “Russians hacked the voting machines”...”Guccifer stole Hillary’s emails” etc.

Blaming another nation who is innocent of the crime is simply a way to gin up wars and strife that are unjustified.

Unfortunately, we cannot believe ANYTHING that comes out of the US DOJ.

Remember all the frame-ups, planted evidence etc?

This man COULD be innocent, or guilty as hell. Until the DOJ is washed clean we should not accept anything they say.

Found dead in a Manhattan jail?

Schulte is currently in a Manhattan jail on charges of possessing, receiving, and transporting child pornography, according to an indictment filed last September. He has pleaded not guilty.

By the time Wikileaks had it, it was probably out in the wild already.

“By the time Wikileaks had it, it was probably out in the wild already.”

Considering the incompetence we've seen in government, over and over and over and over again, is anyone ever still surprised by anything any government agency screws up? It wouldn't be difficult to believe that not only was it widely distributed already ‘in the wild’, but that it had actually been altered and reintroduced into CIA computers already.

“It was one of the most significant and potentially damaging leaks in the CIA’s history”

that’s what I’ve been saying all along, and yet when WikiLeaks first published all of this nearly two years ago, there was barely a yawn from the leftist fake stream media because they had no publication bandwidth left over after all of it being used up all of the time to try to prevent Trump from being elected ...

Let’s not forget that these are the same folks who give surface to air missiles to jihadis.

It was probably sold on the black market within 24 hours of completion.
