Yesterday Wikileaks began yet another dump of highly classified documents and materials stolen from the US government.  This batch of data is being called “Vault 7” and includes all of the tools, tactics, and techniques used by the CIA to conduct cyber-warfare, computer hacking, and technical intelligence gathering.

Wikileaks is claiming that these files were being shared privately, and illegally, by a group of security contractors who worked in the intelligence community.  That story is almost certainly made up out of whole cloth, perhaps not even by Wikileaks, but by a foreign intelligence service that handed them stolen files.
