Reportedly Has Suspect In Biggest CIA Leak Ever, But No Charges

Former CIA engineer, 29, facing a child pornography charge is also suspected of leaking devastating secret agency documents to Wikileaks Man suspected in massive CIA leak jailed, but not charged

Schulte is being held without bail on child pornography charges brought against him in Manhattan federal court.

The embarrassing leaks - the largest data theft in the agency's history - included software that was created to take over iPhones and turn smart TVs into surveillance devices, the paper reported Tuesday.

The leak of the CIA code was damaging because it gave away secrets of how the agency uses cyberweapons to spy on overseas targets.

The Post reports that federal prosecutors obtained a search warrant a year ago for personal computers and hand-written notes from Schulte's apartment, but that investigators didn't find any evidence linking Schulte to the disclosure. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents reportedly searched his Manhattan home a week after the WikiLeaks published its first Vault 7 dispatch in March 2017.

Starting in March 2017, the Vault 7 leaks gave access to a trove of hacking tools and documentation on electronic surveillance capabilities that was initially developed for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Roger said his son was in college when he set up the server later claimed to contain child pornography, and that he "had so many people accessing it he didn't care what people put on it". He revealed extraordinary details about the capabilities of the United States to spy on computers and phones around the world, but the Vault 7 leaks showed how such spying is actually done, the current and former officials argued.

Boeing fell less than 1 percent to $342.09 at 12:37 p.m.in NY , recovering from losses logged before the decision was issued. It is anticipated that USA tariffs will be authorized up to the amount of annual harm the subsidies are determined to cause.


But the prosecutor, Matthew Laroche, an assistant US attorney in the Southern District of NY, said that the government has not brought an indictment, that the investigation "is ongoing" and that Schulte "remains a target of that investigation", according to a court transcript of the January 8 hearing that escaped public notice at the time.

He has plead not guilty to the charges.

A former CIA engineer who was charged with possession of child pornography is also accused of leaking classified agency documents to Wikileaks.

A former employee of the national security Agency USA Edward Snowden said that Wikileaks published CIA documents appear genuine.

It is unclear why he has not been charged or cleared in connection with the theft and subsequent leak. He maintained the agency targeted him because he was the only member of his team to leave the agency after reporting "incompetent management" to the CIA's inspector general.

According to Schulte's LinkedIn page, he was an intern at the NSA while studying.
