WikiLeaks exposed the US based Cross Match Technologies provided tools to CIA for cyber spying.
It is important to know that the Cross Match Technologies is also the same company who gives biometric solutions for Aadhaar UID.
When contacted, official sources said the report was not a WikiLeaks “leak” but a report by a website. Cross Match is a global supplier of devices used for biometric data capture.

“The OTS (Office of Technical Services), a branch within the CIA, has a biometric collection system that is provided to liaison services around the world — with the expectation for sharing of the biometric takes collected on the systems. But this ‘voluntary sharing’ obviously does not work or is considered insufficient by the CIA, because ExpressLane is a covert information collection tool that is used by the CIA to secretly exfiltrate data collections from such systems provided to liaison services,”
