WikiLeaks has just published the source code for the CIA hacking tool named ‘Hive,’ which shows that CIA-operated malware can impersonate public companies – like, say, the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab. Ray was asked to comment on the story linked below:
Ray chose to focus on “Hive’s” cousin cyber-tool, “Marble Framework,” because immediately after Julian Assange outed “Marble” on March 31, the New York Timesdecided that any mention of “Marble” was not fit to print. Apparently under special guidance – The NYT has avoided this particularly relevant cyber-tool like the plague. On April 13, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a friendly think tank audience that RT collaborates with WikiLeaks, and announced:
“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service, often abetted by state actors like Russia.”
And you were maybe wondering why the U.S. “organs of state security” do not like Julian Assange?
