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.”

How to hack VoIP & Skype

June 13, 2010




Skype certainly provides a very nice way for voice communication and chat, but questions remain: Is the system is secure and reliable? Can outsiders capture the conversation or intercept data?

To answer these questions, we will be searching different previous ways demonstrated by security researchers to hack Skype.

Intercepting data on VoIP systems is no different than traditional packet sniffing, the method is the same. The media is transmitted over UDP using the RTP (Real Time Protocol).

Now to analyze the data, we should use an advanced sniffer such as Wireshark, which can decode the session automatically and also provides graphs for results about different communication.

Recording VoIP is possible by using tools such as UCSniff (http://ucsniff.sourceforge.net/) this allows to:

• Targeting of VoIP Users based on Corporate Directory and/or extensions
• Support for automatically recording private IP video conversations
• Automatically re-creates and saves entire voice conversation to a single file that can be played back by media players
• Support for G.729, G.723, G.726, G.722, G.711 u-law, and G.711 a-law compression codecs
• Support for H.264 Video codec
• Automated VLAN Hop and VLAN Discovery support
• A UC Sniffer (VoIP and Video) combined with a MitM re-direction tool
• Monitor Mode
• Sniffs entire conversation if only one phone is in source VLAN
• Gratuitous ARP Disablment Bypass support
• TFTP MitM Modification of IP Phone features
• Realtime VoIP and Video Monitor

Intercepting video conferencing over the network is also possible unless the transition is encrypted. As security measures for signals TLS (Transport Layer Security) is used to protect SIP signals and RTP (Secure Real Time Protocol), but in most cases the voice is transmitted in just clear signal.

Skype mandates encryption of all transmitted traffic, but catching Skype calls is still possible.

Ruben Unteregger, a 33-year-old software developer from Switzerland, has made public the source code of a Trojan that taps into Skype conversations, The Trojan receives commands from a dedicated server, and then sends hackers the desired Audio files.

When the user opens up the Skype Client and starts a conversation, the Trojan performs a DLL injection that will allow it to attach itself to the Skype process and record all audio/video conversations.

The recorded audio files are then transformed from a PCM audio format to MP3, encrypted and sent to a server on the web.

As demonstrated, the method not only catches the keystroke, but all data transmitted by Skype audio and video. You can find more about it here: http://www.megapanzer.com.

Finally it is important to note that listening and recording conversation of other people is illegal and it is classified as a crime while these tools can be used to make a backup of your own conversations and as a Proof of Concept demonstration tool and a method of creating awareness around VoIP/UC threats.
