Apple Reassures Users: Flaws in WikiLeaks/CIA Vault7 Leak Already Patched - SecureMac
On March 7th, WikiLeaks entered the news and made waves again by releasing almost nine thousand documents they claimed came from within the US Central Intelligence Agency. Contained in the leak was a vast range of information about the CIA’s intelligence gathering practices regarding technology. The revelations included information that the agency had undertaken spying efforts through exploiting vulnerabilities in various technologies, including some “smart” TVs and mobile operating systems. Also, contained within the documents, however, were fourteen previously undisclosed flaws in iOS. Through these flaws, an attacker could have eavesdropped on an iPhone’s communications or hijacked the device entirely.
However, iPhone users should not worry. Within a day of the leak, Apple issued a statement claiming that many of the issues had already been identified and patched. In the statement, Apple said that iOS 10.2.1, released on January 23, 2017, contained the necessary fixes to these issues. Yet Apple also stated that it continued to work on correcting any issues identified in the leak. Keep an eye out for any forthcoming updates. If you have not already updated your iPhone to the latest version, now is a perfect time. Not only will it ensure protection against these flaws, but 10.2.1 remedies numerous other security issues as well.

The CIA Reads French Theory: On the Intellectual Labor of Dismantling the Cultural Left - The Philosophical Salon
The image of American spies gathering in Parisian cafés to assiduously study and compare notes on the high priests of the French intelligentsia might shock those who presume this group of intellectuals to be luminaries whose otherworldly sophistication could never be caught in such a vulgar dragnet, or who assume them to be, on the contrary, charlatan peddlers of incomprehensible rhetoric with little or no impact on the real world. However, it should come as no surprise to those familiar with the CIA’s longstanding and ongoing investment in a global cultural war, including support for its most avant-garde forms, which has been well documented by researchers like Frances Stonor Saunders, Giles Scott-Smith, Hugh Wilford (and I have made my own contribution in Radical History & the Politics of Art).
