Governments, Tech Firms Respond to Vault 7
Governments around the world are starting to respond to Vault 7.
Governments are using a classic strawman and showing outrage at who could have leaked this information instead of showing outrage at the fact that the CIA has created this incredible invasion of privacy by infecting consumer products with nasty viruses and malware. Nobody is even denying that the CIA has this technology or may have been using it to spy on political opponents with to blackmail and influence the outcomes of elections.
Germany’s top prosecutor has said they will examine the documents in Vault 7 and prosecute accordingly, if evidence of criminal acts is found. Meanwhile, Samsung has begun a probe into their products’ vulnerabilities and Apple has stated they will “continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.” Other tech companies have also responded to the Vault 7 revelations.
