The CIA documents that WikiLeaks exposed are more damaging than Edward Snowden's NSA leaks. The documents that were leaked will likely to have three effects, writes Fred Kaplan in Slate. These include ruining U.S. cyberintelligence operations, instructing other spy agencies and criminals how to carry out CIA actions, and providing Russia with another propaganda victory.
The significance of the CIA data that Wikileaks exposed is overhyped. According to cyber security and national security experts, the data is interesting but not all that surprising or alarming, writes Buster Hein in Cult of Mac. In fact, says Hein, as many people behind Wikileaks are not experts on iOS, Windows or Android security, some or many of the claims accompanying the CIA documents could be inaccurate.
