Vault 7 Part 2, or "Dark Matter", is the second installment in a series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Codenamed "Dark Matter" after one of the cyberweapons revealed in this installment, this release exposes a collection of the CIA's hacking toolset that deal directly with, among other things, strategies allowing the attacker to enable persistent surveillance/access to the device being targeted.

The releases of Vault 7 follow WikiLeaks' publication of documents illustrating the CIA's interference in the 2012 French election.
