WikiLeaks Publishes CIA 'Dumbo' Project That Turns Off Security Cams, Corrupts Recordings - Breitbart

WikiLeaks Publishes CIA 'Dumbo' Project That Turns Off Security Cams, Corrupts Recordings - Breitbart: WikiLeaks has published documents from the CIA “Dumbo” project, which allegedly allows the U.S. government to turn off security webcams and corrupt recordings to hide “physical intrusions.”

The leaked documents are the latest entry in the WikiLeaks Vault 7 dump, which has seen other reported CIA cyber-weapons leaked in detail to the public, including the Mac-hacking tool “Imperial,” secure shell exploit “Bothanspy,” geolocation-tracking project “Elsa,” Wi-Fi breaching tool “Cherry Blossom,” and malware “Pandemic.”

“Today, August 3rd 2017 WikiLeaks publishes documents from the Dumbo project of the CIA,” announced WikiLeaks on Thursday. “Dumbo is a capability to suspend processes utilizing webcams and corrupt any video recordings that could compromise a PAG deployment. The PAG (Physical Access Group) is a special branch within the CCI (Center for Cyber Intelligence); its task is to gain and exploit physical access to target computers in CIA field operations.”
