CIA dump

I’ve just glanced at the Wikileaks press release about the CIA dump, and briefly browsed through the documents and I’m already super-excited. So many clever hacks; so many flaws found and exploited. ShoulderSurfer for example, is a tool for accessing Exchange data (email, contacts, schedules) without credentials. It piggybacks on a process that already has the Exchange database locked and injects API calls to pull the data. These CIA hackers are diabolically brilliant. Their research is priceless, and Wikileaks did the world a huge favor by releasing this information. I can’t wait to see what stories come out of this dump!
