Wikileaks to Give Details of CIA Hacking Tools to Tech Companies

Wikileaks’ disclosure of documents appearing to outline secret CIA phone- and gadget-hacking tools has caused concern both in the US and at tech companies worldwide.

Now, the anti-secrecy group’s founder, Julian Assange, has said details of the CIA’s hacking mechanisms will be handed over to tech companies.

He has accused the CIA of “devastating incompetence” regarding the affair.

American authorities say the security breach was likely carried out by contractors and the intelligence community had been aware of it since the end of last year.

Experts, such as the University of Southern California’s Professor Clifford Neuman, have urged caution.
