    WikiLeaks uploaded on Monday 186 megabytes of what it says is apparently archived malicious software linked to the US National Security Agency (NSA).

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — WikiLeaks is an international non-profit journalistic organization founded in 2006 to disseminate documents, photos and video of political or social significance, according to the organization’s Facebook page. 

    "186Mb of apparent NSA malware, exploits released," the whistleblower website wrote on Twitter alongside a link to a massive trove of files.

    The website gained prominence when it publicized a trove of classified diplomatic cables between heads of state and government.
