CIA Masks Hacks to Blame Foreign Countries

The latest drop from whistleblower organization WikiLeaks has revealed the details of a CIA hacking program known as “Marble.” According to the files, the secret framework allows the U.S. intelligence agency to disguise its hacking activities. The 676 files from Wikileaks Vault 7 “Marble,” released Friday, show how the framework can hamper forensic investigators by using foreign languages to mask viruses, trojans and hacking attacks, making it more difficult for them to be tracked to the CIA. Foreign languages including Russian, Arabic, Korean, Chinese and Farsi were added to algorithms to confuse and mislead those investigating hackings and can also hide fake error messages.
