In a ground-shattering data dump, WikiLeaks has released part 1 of what may be its most ambitious project yet. Vault 7, as it is called, has opened by blowing the whistle on civil liberty abuses and covert hacking allegedly committed by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. The data is quite a lot to process, but issues relating to InfoSec have immediately caught the eyes of experts in the cybersecurity field. Perhaps the most intriguing, and harrowing, of these issues is the proof that the CIA hoarded zero-days from developers.
