WikiLeaks Warns CIA Trying to Hack Cars for ‘Undetectable Assassinations’

Sputnik – 07.03.2017

In the explosive “Vault 7” CIA secrets published by WikiLeaks on Tuesday, the organization has warned that the CIA, among a myriad of other intrusive exploits, has been investigating ways to hack and manipulate the control systems of cars and trucks for use in covert operations.

According to WikiLeaks, the CIA’s interest in hacking vehicles is not specified, but could be used in sinister ways, including assassinations.

“As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks,” WikiLeaks said in a statement. “The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.”

Many current vehicles are now mainly controlled by computer systems — including brake control, air bags, acceleration, steering, door locks, and other vital systems.

In 2014, hackers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek using their laptops while in the car, took over a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by a reporter for Wired, as they were traveling on the highway. The demonstration was shocking, and lead to the recall of 1.4 million vehicles. The previous year, hackers compromised a Ford Escape and a Toyota Prius, while sitting in the backseat.

The vehicle hacking reports were contained in the first batch of CIA leaks, titled “Year Zero.” Wikileaks published 8,761 documents and files which they claim are from the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

WikiLeaks has a 100-percent track record for publishing authentic documents.

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has also chimed in on the issue, tweeting, “Still working through the publication, but what @Wikileaks has here is genuinely a big deal. Looks authentic.”

  2. The really frightening thing about this is, “WHO actually is running the USA? The President(I bet) probably wasn’t aware of this, nor the Congress probably, so WHO has the power in their hands? And, what controls are there in place, to monitor what the CIA does, and “WHO it is ACCOUNTABLE TO”………The Military Industrial Complex?

    • WHO killed JFK?……..and WHO was responsible for the destruction on 9/11?……. WHO was responsible for Israel getting the A and H BOMB?…….. WHO runs the Cocaine and Opium(Heroin) trade? There’s probably lots of other unanswered questions as well………

      • Arnon Milchan helped deliver/smuggle the nuclear materials to Israel.
        He produced Brazil(totalitarian police state conducting terror to justify its existence) Once upon a time in america(shows how joos took control of government after prohibition) Medusa touch(about a writer who’s creates disasters just by thinking of them, like crashing planes into large buildings and collapsing others using only his mind). You can see the themes he is interested in “bringing to life”.

        Gary Webb exposed the cia as the major drug runners around the world.

    • There are NO controls whatever to monitor the CIA, except for courageous whistleblowers like WikiLeaks, who are not afraid to expose the bad deeds of those who choose to hide behind security classifications !

      • “There are NO controls whatever to monitor the CIA”
        I think this is a question that Americans need to seriously consider. If it is true that America is run by the “DEEP STATE” then Democracy is long dead(but we all knew that anyway).
        Maybe it’s time for the USA to fix the massive problems it has at home, instead of things like “attacking seven countries in five years”, or giving Israel 3.8Billion dollars/year for free, while the USA’s infrastructure is deteriorating massively, or the Banking Industry making Al Capone look like an alter boy.
        The USA is in deep Doodoo and everyone is running around pointing the finger at D Trump/Vlad Putin. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t SO SERIOUS.

      • Too bad your “god blessed courageous whistleblower” wikileaks is a cia, mossad or cia/mossad cooperation.

        Its leaks benefit Israel, the leaks are old news for those who know where to look, when a guy like assange can run around the globe without being assassinated while poo-pooing the very real 9/11 conspiracy and get msm exposure then he might be cointelpro.

        He’s just a cia version of the fbis alex jones and info wars.

    trump isn’t the “savior” he is simply the actor picked to play savior by the zionists AND globalists.
