U.S. Cyber Command’s Fusion Cell component determined that adversaries would change their tactics based on secret U.S. intelligence information disclosed by former Army analyst Bradley Manning via WikiLeaks in 2010, a recently released document shows.  The leaked information “clearly state that U.S. Government entities have knowledge of specific adversary TTPs [tactics, techniques and procedures], including malware, toolsets, IP addresses, and domains used in intrusion activity,” the report reads. The document was obtained through a National Security Archive FOIA request.
