The leak outlined a broad range of flaws in smartphones and other devices that the agency uses to intercept communications and spy on its targets, making even China and Germany worried about the CIA's ability to hack all manner of devices.

While WikiLeaks promised the "Vault 7" release is less than one percent of its 'Year Zero' disclosure, and there's more to come, we are here with some new developments on the CIA leak.
But, before knowing about the latest developments in the CIA hacking tool leak, I would suggest you read my previous piece to know 10 important things about 'WikiLeaks-CIA Leak.'
We believe the US intelligence agencies have access to much bigger technical resources and cyber capabilities than the leak exposed in the leak.

The dump so far just shows that the agency gathered and purchased tools to target devices, but nothing in the leak specifies that was actually spying on people. Also, the nature of those tools suggests that they're designed for targeted operations, rather than mass surveillance.
