WikiLeaks head Julian Assange has said that he will work with tech companies to defend them against the CIA hacking tools outlined in the organization’s latest leak.

The documents, released on Tuesday, are part of what WikiLeaks claims is a massive haul of Agency secrets, including technology to use people’s TVs and phones to secretly listen in on their conversations.

The documents included fragments of code but no actual hacking tools.

Speaking at a digital press conference Thursday, Assange said WikiLeaks has ‘a lot more information’ on the CIA tools and would provide its services to tech companies to help defend against them.
