Known as Vault 7, it was the WikiLeaks data dump that thrusted the public into bouts of paranoia.
Thousands of documents from the CIA detailed covert programs in which devices like smart TV’s and smartphones could spy on people.
Now CBS News is reporting that a manhunt for the leaker is underway. The CIA and FBI are joining forces to investigate what has become one of the worst security breaches since Edward Snowden .

Sources tell the network it looks like either a CIA employee or contractor is to blame.
The documents stolen are in such a secure section that only a few hundred people have access to them.
President Trump, who once praised Julian Assange for leaking embarrassing documents of his rivals, is now reportedly “extremely concerned.”
CIA director Mike Pompeo said, “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”
At the time of its initial publishing, WikiLeaks says the CIA documents it released are just the tip of the iceberg, claiming they’ve only released 1 percent of their trove on the organization.
