CIA has been hacking into Wi-Fi routers for years

As the CIA and other deep state players+useful idiots in media, try to keep this endless search for Russian hackers going month after month, take a look at who the real hackers are:

CIA has been hacking into Wi-Fi routers for years, leaked documents show
CIA has been hacking into Wi-Fi routers for years, leaked documents show | ZDNet


Leaked secret documents have revealed that the CIA has been targeting and compromising home, office, and public wireless routers for years in an effort to carry out clandestine surveillance.

The documents, which could not be immediately verified, are part of an ongoing series of leaks released by the website WikiLeaks, revealing the work of the CIA's elite hacking unit, dubbed the Engineering Development Group.

Among the dozens of files are user and installation guides, manuals, and other "secret"-marked maps and charts that reveal several hacking tool suites, which allow the agency to conduct targeted exploitation of networks and computers.

One of the tools, dubbed CherryBlossom, allows the agency to monitor the internet activity of a target, redirect their browser, scan for email addresses and phone numbers, and other software exploits......................

Actually, YES, I do feel better knowing my government is monitoring phones, emails, social media, etc. This issue has always boiled down to privacy v security and most Americans (including myself) are conflicted about it.
Of course I treasure my privacy, but I'm also realistic enough to know that the world has become a scary place. There are villains who hate Americans/Christians. There are psychotic fruitcakes who can't wait to create havoc.

What's surprising is the number of people who seem surprised that our government is going to such lengths.

Who is going to protect us from the protectors?

We the people are transparent while the rulers are invisible.

Many thanks for I feel much better now. The CIA, NSA, IRS, FBI, FCC, AEC, ICE, KGB, Scotland Yard, Interpol and local police can probe me all they want and will come up empty handed.

If they invent things on you, they have you by the balls. Look at all the nations we've invaded based on information provided by "intelligence sources".

I divide things into controllables and uncontrollables.
And I do what I can about the things over which I have some control, even if it's minuscule.
But the CIA is going to try to listen into every data stream on the planet, because it's their job, and I'm not going to worry about it, because there's nothing I can do about it.

It's just the way things are, if they can't listen in to a wireless router, how are they going to listen in when it's important, when there's terrorists or criminals using the internet to communicate.

How much internet traffic is there in the US on Wi-Fi? Setting people down to monitor all that would solve the unemployment problems in the whole world, let alone the US.

What they must use is some type of program to look for key words, phrases or certain websites. I'm sure they have some pretty sophisticated programs for that. I keep being amazed at how good Google is at finishing sentences for me.

The problem of course is if you totally innocently happen to put the wrong words together in the wrong way, life might become very messy for you for a bit.

But like Clara said, there are decisions to be made about trade-offs and value judgements.

Minor point, but isn't the CIA only supposed to be listening to foreigners?
