It's been six months since WL pre-released an archive of password-locked files, dubbed "Vault 7, Part B, Media Ops." It seems that people on this sub and on Twitter have not mentioned it in months.
It has also been eight months since the press release on CIA interference in the French election, which was presented as a "teaser" for the initial Vault 7 Year Zero publications.
Trying to connect the dots, my impression had been that Media Ops would be a detailed look at how US Intelligence agencies use the malware tools exposed in Year Zero. I've been anticipating the passwords to Part B for a while, but starting to wonder if it is coming.
Heck, depending on how long they plan on waiting, it could theoretically be possible to use distributed computing to bruteforce some of the Media Ops passwords. Does anyone know if this has been tried?
