Wired Complicit in Federal Crimes by Hacker (Cryptome Hacked re: WikiLeaks)
5 October 2010

Wired Complicit in Federal Crimes by Hacker

Kim Zetter with Wired is writing a story on the Cryptome hack and said just now (about 2PM) by telephone to have spoken to the person who did the hack and has seen evidence from the hacker to support the hack claim.
The hacker claims to have accessed John Young's email at Earthlink, a federal crime, and Zetter said she was shown screen shots of email to prove access. Zetter cited specific John Young emails the hacker claimed to have, one a confidential tip to Wired's Noah Shachtman using a pseudonym. Zetter said she confirmed with Shachtman that he had received the tip from the pseudonym.
Zetter said the hacker described accessing the Cryptome Network Solutions account, another federal crime.
Zetter also said the hacker claims to have accessed John Young emails and other material concerning Wikileaks, specifically related to "Wikileaks insiders" and material submitted to Wikileaks.
Zetter said the hacker claims to have downloaded 7 Terabytes of Cryptome and John Young material. That is a thousand times the 7GB on Cryptome, thus the hacker is exaggerating or has downloaded material from John Young's computer system, another federal crime.
John Young told Zetter to report that Cryptome has no objection to rummaging through Cryptome material, it is all open source, but that the crimes of accessing private email, the ISP account and John Young's computer system will be pursued. "We will burn the hacker's ass for that," he said to Zetter, "be sure to print that."
John Young told Zetter she will be subpoenaed as a witness to the federal crimes and is likely complicit in the crime by withholding information about them from law enforcement. Zetter was also told she is lying about the extent of material she has been shown by the hacker.
Zetter asked that this discussion not be reported on Cryptome until her story appears. John Young said sure. Zetter said but you always report interviews. That's right, he said.

I guess the $25 for the complete Cryptome files on DVD was too much for this guy.
