Wikileaks Reveals CIA Malware that Hacks & Spy On Linux Computers

The OutlawCountry Linux hacking tool consists of a kernel module, which the CIA hackers load via shell access to the targeted system and create a hidden Netfilter table with an obscure name on a target Linux user.

"The new table allows certain rules to be created using the "iptables" command. These rules take precedence over existing rules, and are only visible to an administrator if the table name is known. When the Operator removes the kernel module, the new table is also removed," CIA's leaked user manual reads.

Although the installation and persistence method of the OutlawCountry tool is not described in detail in the document, it seems like the CIA hackers rely on the available CIA exploits and backdoors to inject the kernel module into a targeted Linux operating system.

Czeched digits.

Also your title should be "Linux is less secure than Windows/MacOS". The way you've written it is stupid.

David Rivera

So there is specific malware targeting Linux.
Do they not need that for the other OSs? Maybe they already got backdoors for them?

Would you say that makes Linux less secure?

Windows is already backdoored so they don't have to make tools for that.

Isn't that basically equivalent to a rootkit?

Yes. OP is a moron who doesn't understand that you can write malware for anything and the hard part is actually installing it.

Because lonely kids, desperate for attention, sometimes turn to roleplaying as shills or "government disinformation agents" in order to feel like they matter to someone. They tell themselves, over and over again, that it's all just "le epic Cred Forums troll culture" (whatever that is) but really they're just desperate for any kind of human contact.

Carson Howard

They have malware for every platform, backdoors are bullshit.

Cooper Collins

Pretty sure you need a ROOT access to load kernel modules. So it's LESS than nothing.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

thanks for posting a link to a story from last year that tells us nothing we already didn't know.

linux: still lightyears ahead in terms of security than WINDOWS.

get the fuck off of this board and come back when:
you're not a dense faggot
when you know what you're talking about.

i can't tell if this is bait or if you're just a fucking retard? it says nothing about linux being more 'insecure'. dumb cunt.

Nolan Myers

suuuure they can. sure. if they have physical access to the system, know my credentials and a bunch of other features/settings that need to be enabled. why make things up? is learning something too hard for you? let me guess: american, right?

See, these are the benefits of open source
Nah nigga, gimme the closed esta source shit available, I don't want pajeet or ivan to know what's in the code
If you get viruses on windows is because you're retarded, use windows 10, install updates, don't use kmspico botnet
Easy as fuck
Never understood the Linux mania from Cred Forums. Sure is good for compiling shit but for everyday use, just use windows.

Angel Allen

Yes. OP is a moron who doesn't understand that you can write malware for anything and the hard part is actually installing it.
Not if you convince hardware manufacturers that inserting your code into the management engine is in the best interests of national security and you happen to be a government agency that possibly has the power to shut them down if they don't comply.

How the fuck did they even get shell access in the first place? If you get shell access, you can practically do anything you fucking want. The machine is owned.

right... so why is this anything amazing? If they have shell access you're pwned anyway. Why would they even need to exfiltrate traffic in that case?

Reminder that windows pioneered the majority of anti expoitation techniques, and the only way to get the majority of them on Linux is to pay a subscription for grsecurity, otherwise you're far less secure on Linux

Wikileaks Reveals CIA Malware that Hacks & Spy On Linux Computers
Such malware is not required for Windows considering their documentation for """basic""" telemetry spans almost 4000 lines of text.

targeted system
At least with Linux you have to be targeted. With Windows they just pick up the red phone and Bill Gates sends them a .csv with the info (more or less).

Nice quads tho.
