Thanks to a recent posting by Wikileaks, it has been discovered that the CIA apparently keeps a list of exploits for a variety of software and hardware that they could potentially take advantage of to break into them should the need arise. Now Apple has claimed that most of the exploits have since been patched, and the good news is that Android users can rest assured that they’re safe too.

According to a statement Heather Adkins, Google’s director of information security and privacy made to CNET, “As we’ve reviewed the documents, we’re confident that security updates and protections in both Chrome and Android already shield users from many of these alleged vulnerabilities. Our analysis is ongoing and we will implement any further necessary protections.”

To be fair it seems that the list of exploits that the CIA kept date all the way back to 2013, which means that there is a very good chance that over the years and thanks to the monthly security updates issued by Google that some of them have been patched already, but it’s still good to hear Google confirming it anyway.

Recently Wikileaks also announced that they will be cooperating with tech companies by releasing the tools that the CIA used to hack their software, something that the CIA is apparently none too happy about.
