WikiLeaks disclosure exposes rapid growth of CIA digital operations — and agency vulnerabilities

WikiLeaks disclosure exposes rapid growth of CIA digital operations — and agency vulnerabilities – The Washington Post – The hacker — whose background appears in the thousands of CIA documents posted online Tuesday by the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks — is part of a digital operation that has grown so rapidly in size and influence in recent years that it ranks alongside spying and analysis divisions that were created at the same time as the CIA decades ago.

The trove of documents exposed by WikiLeaks provides an unprecedented view of the scale and structure of this operation, which encompasses at least 36 distinct branches devoted to cracking the espionage potential of cellphones, communication apps and computer networks supposedly sealed off from the Internet.
