Mac users could be at risk, WikiLeaks finds more hacking tools


WikiLeaks very recently revealed another set of hacking tools which has been used by the CIA to hack into systems powered by Linux and Mac OS X.

The dump by WikiLeaks has indicated that CIA’s hacking tools were part of a project called “Imperial” which consisted of 3 different solutions which were supposed to help the agency infiltrate into non-Windows computers and either get control of the devices in the background or steal information from systems without the users noticing it.

Firstly, it was Achilles, a dedicated solution which the CIA had used to integrate Trojan apps into legitimate DMG files which Apple customers have used to install apps on their computers.
