Cia created indeed a secret program recruiting the best hackers on the planet aiming to prepare an illegal software which included malwares as well. They took advantage of people’s Ios and Androids phones to spy their movements and personal activities by hackering these devices. In some case they also managed to use Smart Tv microphones to keep themselves up to date on people’s various speeches obviously without their knowledge.

Cia did not deny the scoop but Apple and Samsung immediately declared their non-involvement with the facts described,specifying that their softwares have immediately been checked for their users’ peace of mind.
This scandal is alarming governments around the world because these data publications if uncontrolled could break a real global cybernetic war out.
