Leaking Classified NSA Information

Billie Winner-Davis, Reality Winner's mother, told Business Insider on Tuesday that President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is attempting legal representation to aid the former Air Force language analyst contractor and Kingsville native Reality Winner with her case.

Winner pleaded guilty in 2018 to leaking classified National Security Agency information on Russia's alleged efforts to interfere with the 2016 election. She was found guilty of violating the U.S. Espionage Act and sentenced to five years in prison at the Federal Medical Center-Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas.

In 2016 following her separation from six years of active duty, Winner was hired by Pluribus International Corporation under an NSA contract to work out of Fort Gordon, Georgia.

According to ABC News, Winner printed a classified report detailing how Russian hackers allegedly “executed cyber espionage operations” on local election systems and mailed the documents to The Intercept.

She was arrested on June 3, 2017.

Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign violations and tax fraud in 2018, began serving his sentence in May 2019 at the federal penitentiary in Otisville, New York.

He has been under house arrest since July over coronavirus concerns.

Military.com stated that Reality’s mother sent a Twitter message that said “Cohen has asked another attorney to look at the case and for opportunities to help.”

Zeroday Emergency Response Team (ZERT)

But some bloggers weren't sure that third-party patches are a tool worth having, including Ross Brown, CEO of Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based eEye Digital Security, which released its own fix for the Internet Explorer (IE) createTextRange flaw back in March.

"While it would be easy to assume … that eEye would be all over releasing third-party patches as a commercial entity and while we have gotten advice from an analyst that this would be a great business … I don't think third-party patches are a great idea," Brown wrote in his Technobabylon blog. "They are a necessary evil that should be used sparingly."

He compared third-party patching to a virtual game of Jenga, where, over time, an unstable pile of code builds up in the system. "Adding third-party code that changes the basic functionality of the system isn't hard, but it is really hard to do well, especially as time passes and the other parts of the 100 million lines of Jenga code get moved around," he said. "Third-party patching is like playing Jenga blindfolded at best."

When eEye released its third-party fix, Brown said the firm got it right by following these design principles:

  • Touch as few parts as possible to mitigate the flaw;
  • Be aware of the official patch and disappear once that patch was installed; and
  • Be aware of the version of Windows, including languages and revisions, to patch correctly.

Another blogger, who only uses his first name, Michael, in his MCW Research blog, wrote that he didn't know enough about ZERT to recommend the organization's fix. But he liked that ZERT's action shined a spotlight on the severity of the IE flaw.

"This does emphasize the severity of this vulnerability," he wrote. "It's frustrating to me that with an application as widely distributed and used as IE, Microsoft isn't quicker to the punch with releasing patches. Patches are by design reactive security. However, Microsoft is making them even more so by waiting until there is a wide-scale impact before they'll rush a patch.

He said he's a huge proponent of a beta patch program where Microsoft could release patches rapidly without having to perform 100% regression testing. "In some cases I would most certainly weigh wide-scale compromise as more important than wide-scale application problems in my network," he said. "I want that choice and Microsoft is not letting me have it. They are making that decision for me."

But in its blog, the Microsoft Security Response Center noted that it got the patch out well ahead of its initial Oct. 10 timetable. "Through some really top notch effort by all our testing teams, we were able to reach our quality bar far sooner than we originally anticipated," the center said.

In his blog, StillSecure Chief Strategy Officer Alan Shimel wrote that for better or worse, third-party patches are here to stay.

"Basically, my feeling is that it is like playing Russian Roulette," he wrote. "However, with this latest VML vulnerability and the subsequent patch by ZERT, I am beginning to think that my opposition may be akin to spitting in the wind."

He said people unwilling to wait for Microsoft's patch cycle to address this are going to take their chances. "I do not think this will work for large enterprises," he said. "Generally, they do not put out patches willy nilly. However, for small businesses or consumers, they are going to be driven into this."

The general lack of enthusiasm for third-party patches is consistent with what IT professionals have said during recent interviews. Most said they'd never deploy a third-party patch in their environments because there's a risk that these fixes could actually introduce new flaws and make matter worse.

ZERT - has a very nice team working hard on trying to patch windows. It is taking Microsoft way to long to release a patch. They could have been quicker in patches.

They think they are KING? - Of What ?
