US Consulate in Frankfurt is a ‘CIA Hacker Base’ – Says Wikileaks

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

21st Century Wire says…

The latest batch of information out of what is being called ‘Vault 7’ from Wikileaks  included a leaked set of documents outlining the procedures for new CIA hackers coming to the US Consulate in Frankfurt. According to the documents the consulate is home to the Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe (CCIE) and is know for hacking operations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

RT reports on the latest ‘Vault 7’ release…


The American consulate in Frankfurt functions as a covert base for CIA hacking operations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks said, revealing the latest batch of their documents.

According to the leaked documents, the US consulate, located on Giessener Strasse opposite the Frankfurt cemetery, is the home of the Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe, or CCIE, which carries out hacking operations across the continent as well as the Middle East and Africa.

These latest revelations stem from WikiLeaks’ largest-ever disclosure from the agency, a total of 8,761 documents released on Wednesday as part of “Year Zero,” the first part in a series of leaks on the agency that the whistleblower organization has dubbed “Vault 7.”

The documents are said to originate from the internal network at Cyber Intelligence Center, located in CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

This is not the first time that WikiLeaks has revealed the extent of American intelligence agencies’ activities in Germany. In 2015, it published three intercepts of conversations held by German Chancellor Angela Merkel recorded by the NSA, which had been bugging her phones for years.

But by the end of 2016, WikiLeaks notes in its press release that the CIA’s hacking division had built up its capabilities to such an extent that it had “created, in effect, its ‘own NSA’ with even less accountability…
