10 March 2017, 2:17 am

Microsoft has finally issued a statement regarding the WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak of CIA documents regarding the agency's hacking powers, saying that computers running Windows 10 software should be safe. 

According to Microsoft's statement, the vulnerabilities mentioned in the CIA files were dated and appeared to target older systems. 

"We take security issues very seriously and are continuing a deeper analysis to determine if additional steps are necessary to further protect our customers," the company said. Should any additional threats be discovered, Microsoft promises to inform customers. 

There is no mention whether people using previous Windows version are safe from CIA attacks or not. 

Apple, Google, Linux claim users are safe 

Microsoft's statement falls in line with what we've been hearing from all over the tech community. Apple and Softpedia News / Security
