The revelations made yesterday by the “WikiLeaks” about the tool of the CIA, showed how this agency could monitor and control the electronic equipment.

From the information publicly available on the WikiLeaks site, there are several flaws pointed out to iOS that would be actively being exploited by the CIA.
The tech giant Apple has already publicly acknowledged the existence of some of these flaws but also ensured that most are already handled and that are not available to be exploited.
Here is what the tech giant Apple stated, “Apple is deeply committed to safeguarding our customers’ privacy and security. The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best security data available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way.
Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80 percent of users running the latest version of our operating system.
While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue to address any identified vulnerabilities.
We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security updates”.
However, the Cupertino giant Apple has not indicated which faults are fixed and which are still active, but the company has assumed that it will continue to work to detect and resolve potential problems.
The WikiLeaks information also revealed that several other systems are vulnerable and the CIA is actively exploiting these flaws. Among all, Android is the most affected, but are also pointed problems to Samsung smartTVs.
The 8,761 documents and files, referenced Vault 7, are still being evaluated, but the information is believed to be real, and the CIA has even used these security holes to monitor and control the electronic devices remotely.
