As part of the Vault 7 software leak, WikiLeaks has just exposed ExpressLane, another CIA project used to secretly collect biometrics from fellow intelligence agencies such as the NSA, DHS and FBI. The cyber operation dates from 2009 and only works on Windows computers.
Disguising the operation as a software update, a CIA technician would visit the targeted organization to make sure the update was not declined and the tool was installed.
“ExpressLane 3.0 will overtly appear to be just another part of this system. It’s called: MOBSLangSvc.exe and is stored in \Windows\System32,” reads the most recent user guide.
