WikiLeaks won’t disclose CIA exploits to companies until certain demands are met

Source: The Hacker News

“It’s been over a week since Wikileaks promised to hand over more information on hacking tools and tactics of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to the affected tech companies, following a leak of a roughly 8,761 documents that Wikileaks claimed belonged to CIA hacking units. … After days of waiting, Assange made its first contact with Apple, Microsoft, and Google this week and finally made his intentions clear — no sharing of bugs and vulnerabilities the CIA is or was allegedly taking advantage of until certain demands are met. … Although the exact conditions are still unclear, one of the sources mentioned a 90-day disclosure deadline, which would require tech companies to issue a patch for the vulnerabilities within a three-month timeframe.”  (03/17/17)
