WikiLeaks reveals CIA’s Imperial hacking project targeting Mac and Gnu/Linux

WikiLeaks has published the latest of its Vault 7 CIA leaks, this time looking at a project going by the name Imperial. The project is made up of three tools: Achilles and SeaPea which target OS X, and Aeris which targets various flavors of Gnu/Linux, including RedHat, Debian and CentOS. User guides relating to the two Mac tools date from mid-2011 and show they can be used to Trojanize an OS X disk image or install a persistent rootkit. Aeris was designed to provide a backdoor into Gnu/Linux-based systems.
