It is reported that various secret cyber operations are being conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency against China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.
In 2018, President Donald Trump gave extensive powers to the Central Intelligence Agency to continue its operations even harder than before in various countries including China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.
Trump sanctioned the powers and also explained the matter. President Trump authorized the secret activities of the CIA and supported the plans, which are necessary for the welfare of the country as explained by the US government in a document.
The previous administrations had restricted the CIA, which the president has undone now and complete authorization has been given to the CIA to perform its covert actions in a way it wants.
The White House was already searching for a way to retaliate and target few countries, most probably China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.
According to the report, more authority has been given to the CIA to perform more damage to the rivals, and the CIA is allowed to use the same operations that Russia uses.
CIA has been allowed to change its infrastructure and build it better.
The hackers in Russia use the secret agency maneuvers to steal the secret documents of any country and upload it on the internet.
CIA had the permission previously even during the Obama administration, which was later revoked.
President Donald Trump empowered the Central Intelligence Agency by removing the restrictions that bounded the CIA previously.
