Välja ilmunud on info, kus endine NSA alltöövõtjast IT spetsialist võttis tööandja poolt antud nn. häkkimistarkvara ebaseaduslikult kasutusele ja korjas 20 aasta jooksul üle 50 terabaidi salastatud infot kokku.
Federal prosecutors in Baltimore are expected to seek an indictment as early as this week against a former National Security Agency contractor who is accused of carrying out the biggest theft of classified information in U.S. history.
The indictment against Harold T. Martin III is expected to contain charges of violating the Espionage Act by “willfully” retaining information that relates to the national defense, including classified data such as NSA hacking tools and operational plans against “a known enemy” of the United States, according to individuals familiar with the case.
Martin, 52, was arrested Aug. 29 at his home in Glen Burnie, Md., and he has been held in a detention facility since. A U.S. District Judge last fall declined Martin’s request to be released from jail pending an eventual trial or resolution of the case, ruling that he was a flight risk.
In a complaint unsealed in October, the government charged Martin with felony theft of government property and the unauthorized removal and retention of classified materials, a misdemeanor. The prosecutors said then that they expected that the indictment would also include charges of violations of the Espionage Act, offenses that carry a prison term of up to 10 years for each count.
Such charges, prosecutors said, if run consecutively, could amount to a sentence as high as 30 years to life in prison.
The Justice Department declined to comment Monday.
In court hearings and filings, prosecutors have characterized Martin’s actions as highly damaging to national security. Over the course of 20 years working with various federal agencies, Martin took “irreplaceable classified material on a breathtaking scale,” said Zachary A. Myers, an assistant U.S. attorney with the District of Maryland, at a detention hearing in October.
Myers said Martin took “many thousands of pages” of classified material as well as 50 terabytes of digital data, much of which has “special handling caveats.”
Martin previously worked in the Navy, leaving active duty in 1992 and then held a variety of tech jobs with government contractors. He worked at the NSA from 2012 to 2015, where he was an employee of the intelligence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.
For some portion of that time, Martin was in the NSA’s elite hacker unit, Tailored Access Operations, which makes and deploys software used to penetrate foreign targets’ computer networks for foreign espionage purposes.
Some U.S. officials said that Martin allegedly made off with more than 75 percent of TAO’s library of hacking tools — an allegation which, if true, would be a stunning breach of security.
James Wyda, one of Martin’s defense attorneys, declined to comment.
His attorneys have previously portrayed him as a patriot who took material home to become better in his job, not to pass them to a foreign spy agency and betray his country. The desire to improve became a compulsion, Wyda argued at the detention hearing.
“This is the behavior of a compulsive hoarder who could not stop gathering and possessing the documents he treasured,” Wyda said.
Martin’s theft was discovered more than a year after another breach at TAO, in which a longtime employee was discovered to have taken without authorization significant quantities of the unit’s hacking tools. The breach was not thought to be as serious as Martin’s, but it caused concern within the intelligence community.

Täna(reedel) on siis maailmas lammutanud antud NSA poolt kasutatava turvaaugu peale ehitatud lunavara programm, mis on üle maailma vähemalt 100-st riigis laastanud IT süsteemides. Pihta on saanud tuhanded arvutid, millele pole uuendusi peale pandud. Arvutid krüpteeritakse ja küsitakse iga juhtumi kohaselt ca 300 dollarit või ka suuremaid summasid.
Inglismaal kukkusid kokku haiglate IT süsteemid. Hispaania suure telekommunikatsioonifirma Telefonica 85% arvutitest on maas. Eriti tugevalt on pihta saanud Venemaa, kelle siseministeeriumi arvutid on paugu saanud. Nakatunute hulk muudkui kasvab.

The cyberattack has caused chaos across the United Kingdom. Hospitals have been closed and operations cancelled on short notice, and medical staffers have resorted to pen and paper to do work.
Both NHS and Telefónica confirmed the attacks. They said they had been hit by versions of the so-called WannaCry ransomware that demands at least $300.
The reason for the ransomware's virulent spread appears to be its use of an exploit of Windows software developed by the NSA, an American intelligence agency. The exploit was leaked online months ago and patched by Microsoft, but those affected seem not to have updated their software to install the fix.
