I haven't read overly deep into the documents, but if they have rootkits for the main devices (iPhone, android, linux, OSX, windows) that you are using E2E encryption on they can easily sit between the decryption layer and the user.

Yes, and they can also hypothetically send nude pictures of you to all your friends and family, but that wasn't the headline for some reason.

You can do lots of things when you've owned someone's phone. The big news is that they're targeting phones instead of services.

Given that, it's very peculiar to focus on the services WikiLeaks wants you to be afraid of anyway, when they're mentioned nowhere in the documents.
