Feds Identify Suspect in CIA Hacking Tools Leak

Schulte, a 29-year-old former CIA software engineer, is believed to have provided the agency's top-secret information to WikiLeaks, federal prosecutors said in a hearing in January.

That cache would eventually be disclosed as the "Vault 7" data dump.

No charges have been filed against Schulte and his defense lawyers have insisted he was not involved.

Laroche added part of the investigation was to determine whether technology known as Tor, which allows Internet users to hide their location, was used to transmit classified information. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.

For reasons that are still unknown, Schulte hasn't been charged in the case despite being arrested more than a year ago. The NYT said that court papers quote messages that suggest Schulte knew of encrypted images on his computer showing children being molested by adults. Schulte is now in a Manhattan jail on charges of possessing, receiving and transporting child pornography, after prosecutors allege they found a large cache of child pornography on a server that was maintained by Schulte.

Instead of charging Schulte for the leak, prosecutors ended up charging him in August 2017 with possessing, receiving and transporting child pornography after investigators stated they'd found porn content on a server he'd created in 2009.

Schulte worked in the CIA's Engineering Development Group, which produced the computer code, according to people with knowledge of his employment history as well as the group's role in developing cyberweapons.

Prior to joining the CIA, Schulte worked for the National Security Agency.

The FBI said they removed NSA and Central Intelligence Agency paperwork from Schulte's home, as well as a personal computer, tablet, phone and other electronics. 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.

He also said that because of 'unfortunate circumstances the Federal Bureau of Investigation ultimately made the snap judgement that (he) was guilty of the leaks and targeted (him)'. Prosecutors, meanwhile, said in court last week that they plan to file a new indictment in the next 45 days.

He said the complaints made him appear to be a disgruntled employee and a planned vacation to Mexico with his brother gave the impression he was trying to flee the country. Laroche was actually describing a "characterization" by Schulte's attorneys and expressing disagreement.
