4:02 am
so, could russia have hacked the cia or could there be a mole, a spy inside the agency working for vladimir putin? other possibilities a leak from british intel partners or the u.s. consulate in frankfurt which is headquarters for the cia hacking operation. and now there is fear terrorists could have a play book for how to hack into smartphones and other electronic devices. so, here's the question. just how vulnerable are our devices? nbc's tom costello has more. >> reporter: security pros say the cia alleged hacking blueprints should serve as a reality check for all americans. >> the only secure device would be one that's turned off, stepped on, melted down, buried and then maybe it's secure. >> i've got him, he's right here on the street. >> reporter: cyber security pro has already demonstrated how easily he could hack into my phone, watch me through the camera lens and listen through the microphone. all of these devices that we're putting around us now
