Wednesday, WikiLeaks indicated that the CIA’s nightmare has only just begun following the release of ‘Vault 7 Part 1’ dubbed ‘Year Zero,’ citing that the initial intelligence leak is less than 1% of the documents the anti-secrecy organization has in their possession.

The initial document dump which included over 8,000 pages allegedly outlines the ‘entire hacking capacity of the CIA’ is already being called potentially the largest ever publication of confidential CIA documents in history and if proven authentic, may yield inconceivable ramifications.
As WikiLeaks explained in Tuesday’s press release, the documents were obtain when:
“the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized “zero day” exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation. This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA. The archive appears to have been circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive.”
