CLASSIFIED REPORT

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.”

There are 2 security alerts we are posting about today.

Installing a fake Codec , and Blogger's link to worm.

The 1st one is the malicious nature of “fake” video which requires the user to install a new codec, and in turn, infects them with a ZLOB Trojan.

Your "Sexy Santa" video left some goodies behind when you were watching it.

(Picture Credit) :
Security Pro News


Removing the Trojan is under investigation by our News Team.


The 2nd Alert is Blogger's are linking to a WORM !

One worm was identified as : Storm Worm ( a.k.a. NuWar - Trend Micro detects this as WORM_NUCRP.GEN)


They make this sound like all bloggers are broadcasting trojans.

They are not. Just do not install no new codec's or click on any "Happy New Year" links, and you will be okay (on ANY website).

NEWS UPDATE :

The Storm Worm has changed the domain name (again) and the executable file name being used to spread yet again. In addition, the filename has changed to either happy-2008.exe or happynewyear.exe. The size is about 135KB to 139KB. Kaspersky detects it as Backdoor.Win32.Agent.dln or detects it as Email-Worm.Win32.Zhelatin.pl.

Storm Worm began using a new domain: happycards2008.com

DON'T GO TO THAT DOMAIN !

If you do, or to one of several others with similar names, you'll be redirected to an HTTP request for an EXE file pushing a trojan horse program.

The domains are all registered with an unresponsive Russian registrar. Thirteen different name servers on different networks are listed in order to make it harder to bring the domain down even after 4 days of efforts.

Storm now has better hiding skills, no visible running processes, nastiness all hidden from the API. No more hanging out in the open, easily seen. It is a "Tough Hook".

Then, about 135KB of code is injected from the driver into services.exe process.

Worm collects e-mails from files with these extensions:

.adb, .asp, .cfg, .cgi, .dat, .dbx, .dhtm, .eml, .htm, .jsp, .lst, .mbx, .mdx, .mht, .mmf, .msg, .nch , .ods, .oft, .php, .pl, .sht, .shtm, .stm, .tbb, .txt, .uin , .wab, .wsh , .xls , .xml

The Spam routine will send e-mail to e-mail addresses containing one of these strings:

@foo, @messagelab, @microsoft, abuse, admin, anyone@, bsd, bugs@, cafee, certific, contract@, feste , free-av, f-secur, gold-certs@, google, help@, icrosoft, info@, kasp, linux, listserv, local, news, nobody@, noone@, noreply, ntivi, panda, pgp, postmaster@, rating@, root@, samples, sopho, spam, support, unix, update, winrar , winzip

PrevX lets you download Prevx CSI which will detect the hidden file clean.config, created by the malware under Windows System directory.

Scan your PC in under 2 minutes with Prevx CSI

Helios Lite was designed to be quick and portable, it does not require installation and can be run off a USB drive.

Also see rapier - First Responders Info Gathering Tool from Google Code.

I have some more information as well as Lynn, so watch for another update Part 2.

Please remove all reference's to "Happy New Year" from your site.

Also, if you have a "Sexy Santa Video" , get rid of that too, for you are giving your readers a Trojan !

Watch for Part II of "Blogger Plagued By Storm Worm".

I will be listing some software you can run shortly.

Please note : depending on your scanner, you will come up with different names for this worm. The biggest question I have is : "What information was sent out of your computer, and where did it go ?"

Blogger OS9USER posted on 4:49 PM, December 28, 2007

Go ahead and post...

I was infected but not by these worm's ... I have no idea where I got mine from, but it was in the last 2 days.

It had to be on a news site some place on the internet.

I'll post more on that later.

I need to research my worm & Google's NavBar still.

Thanks !

 


Blogger OS9USER posted on 8:44 PM, December 28, 2007

News Update : It seems my source for NavBar is broadcasting a worm (From Blogger)was incorrect.

It was an angry user that was infected BY using the NavBar.

The problem is NOT Google, but Bloggers have linked to a deadly (and well hidden) worm by wishing everyone a happy new year, or showing a Sexy Santa Video causing their readers to download an execute this trojan worm.

The Domain has changed, and the filename has changed (again), so please becareful until Google pulls the plug on this operation in their Index. I suspect they will also issue a warning if you click on a link to that site.

I will post some software you can run shortly.

Sorry Google, I am trying to confirm all my news !
