WikiLeaks will provide technology companies with exclusive access to CIA hacking tools that it possesses, to allow them to patch software flaws, Julian Assange said Thursday.The anti-secrecy group published documents Tuesday describing secret Central Intelligence Agency hacking tools and snippets of computer code.Representatives of Alphabet Inc.'s Google, Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp and Cisco Systems Inc., all of whose wares are subject to attacks described in the documents, did not immediately respond to requests for comment before regular business hours on the U.S. West Coast.Two U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials told Reuters Wednesday that intelligence agencies have been aware since the end of last year of a breach at the CIA, which led to WikiLeaks releasing thousands of pages of information on its website.Assange said he possessed "a lot more information" about the CIA's cyber arsenal that would be released soon.
