Wikileaks publications

In 2017 Wikileaks published 'Vault 7' about US intelligence measures to spy on users and collect data. One of these projects was 'Scribbles' project, a document-watermarking system for documents that are likely to be copied by Insiders, Whistleblowers, Journalists or others - in order to track those who freely try to share about surveillance programs and attacks on our privacy.

In 2017 Wikileaks also published about CIA surveillance tool 'Weeping Angel', an implant designed for Samsung F Series Smart Televisions, which record audio from the built-in microphone and store the data.

Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, has been imprisoned in Belmarsh High Security Prison for 5 years. The UK government ordered his extradiction to US in June 2022. The extradiction hasn't been executed yet due to appeals although the first was rejected by UK high court. In US Assange will face charges of espionage and even though the US has assured that no death penalty would not be imposed should he be convicted, he would face life imprisonment.

Assange was the target of many focused spying operations. One including UC Global Julian Assange spying case: Judge suggests CIA may have received illicitly recorded conversations, a company hired to secure and protect the Ecuadorian Embassy was used by the CIA to install surveillance devices including cameras and microphones throughout the embassy. This includes putting microphones inside the women's restroom. Julian and every guest that came into the Embassy including his legal defense team were spied on by UC Global for the CIA. The UC Global CEO would routinely meet with CIA officials and hand over surveillance materials.

Wikileaks have extensive materials on surveillance programs.
