Technology firms will get “exclusive access” to details of the CIA’s cyber-warfare programme, Wikileaks has said.
The anti-secrecy website has published thousands of the US spy agency’s secret documents, including what it says are the CIA’s hacking tools.
Founder Julian Assange said that, after some thought, he had decided to give the tech community further leaks first.
“Once the material is effectively disarmed, we will publish additional details,” Mr Assange said.
US federal agencies have launched a criminal investigation into the release of the documents.
However, the CIA has not responded to the claims.
In the first tranche of leaks, Wikileaks alleged that the CIA had developed what Mr Assange called “a giant arsenal” of malware to attack “all the systems that average people use”.
Tech firms, including Google and Apple, have said that they are developing counter-measures to combat any malware that the CIA may have developed.
Mr Assange said that his organisation had “a lot more information on the cyber-weapons programme”.
He added that while Wikileaks maintained a neutral position on most of its leaks, in this case it did take a strong stance.
“We want to secure communications technology because, without it, journalists aren’t able to hold the state to account,” he said.
Mr Assange also claimed that the intelligence service had known for weeks that Wikileaks had access to the material and done nothing about it.
