Hello MIUIers,

WikiLeaks has long been known for disclosing confidential information related to various schemes and exploits from famous groups and organizations. It has recently revealed an information which shows the real capability of CIA.
The recent leak suggests that the Central Intelligence Agency has the ability to turn any Android, iOS, Windows, or Samsung TV device into a covert microphone, listening in on practically any area in the world at whatever point in time they see fit.
While the documents disclose that the malware only has the ability to activate and record data from Samsung smart TV microphones, it also mentions that infected smartphones can have their audio, text, and geo-location data routed to the agency, while also activating sensors such as the device’s camera.

The agency apparently can bypass the end-to-end encryption of apps like WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Weibo and Confide, collecting the message data sent through the device before the encryption was applied to the messages.
This essentially allowed all information input by the user to be collected by the CIA, meaning there was no hiding information, even when using apps users thought to be secure.
The enormous amount of documents collected by WikiLeaks is still being analyzed, as the full first section of the series, being named Year Zero includes 8,761 documents on its own.

So do you think CIA can hack to any smartphones?

Old news, and it's more of NSA elint (electronic intelligence) than it is CIA's. It's been known for years big brother has this ability and more.

That's why feature phones with removable batteries and prepaid SIM are great for use as burners. Removing the batteries is the only sure way to shut down the phone. Include frequent changing of prepaid SIM, Imei and MAC (yes, it can be done) and hey presto, your off the grid. Well almost, there are still other methods that can be used.

Ahem...... this is theoretically speaking, of course.
