Which operating system does the CIA use

WikiLeaks: CIA uses three Trojans, spying on Linux and Mac

The US secret service CIA is said to be using Trojans called Achilles, Aeris and SeaPea. The programs should be able to gain access to file folders on the infected computer without the knowledge of the user. According to a tweet from WikiLeaks, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the United States is running a project called "Imperial" that includes the various tools. The Achilles software is a Trojan that is used on the Mac OS X operating system. The Aeris program, on the other hand, attacks various Linux systems, including Debian, Solaris and FreeBSD. SeaPea is also a rootkit, which is also directed against users of the Mac OS X operating system in both versions 10.6 and 10.7.


About 8700 documents previously published

As early as March 7th, more than 8,700 secret CIA documents were published on the disclosure platform, which were made available under the code name "Vault-7". Details on unknown vulnerabilities in different systems could be found here, which the secret service was also able to exploit in a targeted manner. Among other things, espionage tools of the secret service are able to transmit the position of a target person and to cover up one's own tracks.

Of course, it currently remains unclear whether the information published by WikiLeaks is completely true. There is a possibility that some details have been corrupted. A confirmation from the secret service CIA is unlikely to be given. Still, it should come as no surprise to anyone these days that a wide variety of electronic devices are being monitored by governments around the world.
