One of the hidden gems included in the Vault 7 data, dumped yesterday by WikiLeaks, is a document detailing bypass techniques for 21 security software products.
The document is part of a data dump of nearly 9,000 other files, all documentation files and manuals for various hacking tools, which WikiLeaks claims belong to the CIA.
One particular document, labeled "Personal Security Products (PSPs)" lists 21 security products, each linking to a separate document, containing descriptions of various exploits and techniques that could be used to bypass the named security tools.
The list covers almost all major antivirus vendors, including Comodo, Avast, Kaspersky, AVG, ESET, Symantec, and others.
For most security products included in this list, the bypass/exploit technique has been redacted. Yesterday, when it announced the Vault 7 leak, WikiLeaks said it made 70,875 redactions in total, mainly to remove any harmful code and personal details, such as names and IP addresses.
