The latest releases by WikiLeaks appear to include descriptions of CIA-developed malware that could turn Samsung TVs into recording devices.

Details about the British-made ‘Extending’ and the CIA’s ‘Weeping Angel,’ both recently stolen from the CIA, were released by WikiLeaks on Friday.

The documents outline programs that can make certain Samsung TVs into recording devices via a USB drive placed in the televisions, The Hill reported.

The audio channels from the TVs would be rerouted from its microphone to the CIA.

Depending on the veracity of the documents, the initiative might have been developed jointly by Britain’s MI5, which first developed the software, and the CIA.
