WIKILEAKS How did Bradley Manning remove data from a US government intranet?



Insider Threat Behind Wikileaks Cybersecurity Saga

…according to the published chatlog of a conversation that Manning had with a fellow-hacker. “I would come in with music on a CD-RW labelled with something like ‘Lady Gaga’ … erase the music … then write a compressed split file. No one suspected a thing … [I] listened and lip-synched to Lady Gaga’s Telephone while exfiltrating possibly the largest data spillage in American history.” He said that he “had unprecedented access to classified networks 14 hours a day 7 days a week for 8+ months”.

Wikileaks cybersecurity saga shows importance of insider threats

Amichai Shulman, chief technology officer of data security specialist Imperva:

…there are hackers out there, but IT history has shown that the rogue employee is also a threat. The banking community is now starting to take action to protect its assets, but organisations have a long way to go before they can truly tackle the very real risks that insider threats pose to their reputation and integrity

…..it is very difficult today for organisations to control access to files at an individual level – particularly with collaborative behaviour being encouraged.
