NSA CONTRACTOR ARRESTED FOR STEALING HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION:
On October 05, reports emerged that the FBI had secretly arrested an NSA Booz Allen Hamilton contractor, Harold Thomas MARTIN III, in August 2016 and is now investigating whether he stole and then disclosed highly classified computer source codes used to breach the networks of foreign governments, including Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. The FBI is also investigating whether MARTIN was responsible for an August 2016 leak of some of the NSA's hacking tools. This is the second case in three years involving the theft of highly classified information from NSA involving a Booz Allen contractor. The first was the Edward SNOWDEN leaks.
1986: Allen John DAVIES, a lab technician at a Silicon Valley defense contractor, was charged with trying to pass classified information to the Soviet Union. DAVIES, a ten year Air Force veteran who separated from active service for poor job performance in 1984, held a Secret clearance and worked as an avionic sensors system technician.
"This case represents the first time we have seen the very real and dangerous national security cyber threat that results from the combination of terrorism and hacking. This was a wake-up call not only to those of us in law enforcement, but also to those in private industry. This successful prosecution also sends a message to those around the world that, if you provide material support to designated foreign terrorist organizations and assist them with their deadly attack planning, you will have nowhere to hide. As this case shows, we will reach half-way around the world if necessary to hold accountable those who engage in this type of activity." - Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin, 23 September 2016.
