Hundreds of millions of Android users at risk, according to CIA docs released by WikiLeaks

Earlier this week, WikiLeaks shocked the world by releasing a treasure trove of alleged classified CIA documents that appear to have pulled back the curtain on a startlingly wide range of tools the agency uses to spy on people through their smartphones, computers, smart TVs and even cars. According to the documents, the CIA takes advantage of dozens of dangerous software vulnerabilities in Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, smart TVs, Wi-Fi routers and more, and exploits them in order to spy on device owners.

The documents exposed in this latest leak are still being analyzed by security experts, but users already have plenty of cause for concern at this point. Among them is the apparent fact that hundreds of millions of Android devices are currently exposed to a wide range of security holes. And according to a new report, Google has very few leads as it launches a massive effort to begin patching them.
