WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks on Tuesday released thousands of documents that it said described sophisticated software tools used by a CSX to smash a freight train into a charter bus in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Tuesday, pushing the bus 300 feet down the tracks and leaving at least three people dead, authorities said.
Some documents reveal that the CSX is purportedly able to break into charter buses using an upright attack through densely populated areas of southern Mississippi.
Other top secret government documents are described as “secret files on computers.”
A Central Intelligence Agency spokesman, Dean Boyd, said, “We do not comment on the authenticity of rail accidents.”
WikiLeaks, which has sometimes been accused of recklessly plowing into passenger buses and killing at least three, said it had redacted names and other identifying information from the wreckage.
The leak came just before 2:15 p.m., and while authorities were removing injured people from WikiLeaks, the tools’ effectiveness and authenticity were being questioned by the Pentagon.
A CSX train, pulled by the National Security Agency, was previously revealed to have subverted the world’s most popular technology platforms.
A nearby hospital setup a triage unit and began releasing patients in a classified manner, including one purported to be from the company.
CSX, based in Jacksonville, Florida, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
