The CIA can rewrite a part of a router’s software in order to let it track the internet activity of those who use it, according to information released Thursday by WikiLeaks.
If you’re reading this at home, you’re probably able to do so because of a router. If you’re reading this at work or a coffee shop with Wi-Fi, same.
If the CIA installs it, an agent monitoring the traffic through that router will be able to pick up information such as a person’s passwords.
