Technology companies scrambling for fixes are sent by Wikileaks’ CIA

Tons of companies raced to check the damage from potential security weak points following the anti-secrecy organisation’s disclosures, although some said they needed much more details on what the U.S. intelligence agency was up to before they could thwart imagined but formerly concealed strikes…….

Sinan Eren, vice president of Czech antivirus software manufacturer Avast, called on Google and cellular applications manufacturers Apple to provide security companies to their apparatus to provide immediate fixes to known bugs with privileged access.

Avast, which counts more than 400 million users of its own antivirus applications globally, was named as truly one of the security sellers targeted by the CIA in a leaked page labelled “secret” but lacking additional details in the WikiLeaks records.

The leaks – which WikiLeaks described as the largest in the Central Intelligence Agency’s history – had enough technical details for merchandise sellers and security specialists to recognise that prevalent compromises exist. Nevertheless, they provided few details needed to offer quick fixes.

Reuters couldn’t immediately confirm the legality of the records that are printed, but several contractors and private cyber security specialists said the contents seemed to be valid.

Apple said in a statement that its present iOS applications runs with the most recent security patches. “Many of the problems today leaked were patched in the most recent iOS; we’ll continue work to quickly address any identified susceptibility,” Apple said on Tuesday.

Cisco security team members said in a blog post that because WikiLeaks hasn’t released any of the real hacking exploits, “the range of actions that may be taken by Cisco is limited”.

Omar Santos, a principal engineer in Cisco’s security response unit, said malware seems to be targeting entire families of Cisco devices but is designed to stay concealed in order to steal information undetected. He said Cisco presumes WikiLeaks will finally reveal the hacks, letting it fix them.
