Wikileaks Part 2: Assange News Conference

Wikileaks Part 2: CNET.com & Assange News Conference 03/09/17

This is a PARTIAL c & p of the CNET.com article:

On Thursday, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said that his organization will work with tech giants like Apple, Google and Samsung to plug those holes before it releases more details on the CIA's hacking program.

"We have quite a lot of exploits ... that we want to disarm before we think about publishing it," Assange said at a press conference streamed on Periscope. "We're going to work with some of these manufacturers to try and get these antidotes out there."

His press conference was the latest turn in a drama that has potentially blown open how the CIA could use our own devices to spy on us. The documents show how the agency has allegedly been able to break into even encrypted devices such as phones and computers by taking control of their operating systems.

Assange said he's been keeping WikiLeaks' findings under wraps while the CIA's exploits can still be used because he doesn't want them falling into the wrong hands. He said the CIA has already "lost control of its entire cyberweapons arsenal," which he criticized for being poorly secured.

He said WikiLeaks has much more information on the CIA's cyberweapons program that it's waiting to reveal.

Me here: so there's more to come (there always is). I'm sure we're all impressed by the en masse resignations in the USA govt of all those that participated in the hacks--well I can dream, can't I!!!! The 'I was only following orders' 'mantra' is, apparently, alive and well.

Our version of Trump - Nigel Farage - was involved in this somehow. He was on the news last night after coming out of the Ecuadorian Embassy. Sounds like a sell out to me.
