Wikileaks just released another set of documents from Vault 7 that detail the CIA’s secret anti-forensic program, Marble Framework, which allows them to prevent forensic investigators from pinning hacking attacks, viruses, and trojans to the agency.
It shows just how protected the CIA is from being held accountable for unethical or illegal actions.
According to Wikileaks, the program allows them to direct blame away from the CIA and onto another party by hiding fragments of texts that would allow the author of the malware to be identified.
Perhaps more alarmingly, they can also “add foreign languages” to malware, meaning that the agency can effectively divert attention to other countries.
The program lists Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic, and Farsi in example code.
So, if malware and hacks are indeed domestic, they could easily be made to look as though they originated from another country.
Wikileaks has pinned the information atop their Twitter page.
