Snowden’s Lawyer Tricked Into Using Fake PGP Key to Send Email

Security experts
Weird • Views: 19,518

This post could also be titled “When Hacktivists Attack (Each Other),” as the site cryptome.org publishes an email from Edward Snowden’s lawyer Jesselyn Radack to Glenn Greenwald — that was supposed to have been encrypted with PGP: Jesselyn Radack Emails Glenn Greenwald.

Alleged Jesselyn Radack Email (BG may be Barton Gellman):

Hi Glenn,
Congrats on the McGill award!! I look forward to seeing you at Polks.

On that note, is my client making a surprise appearance? BG said you mentioned this to him at the Polk media event.

I won’t tell anyone, including BG, if it’s a surprise, but as his attorney, I’d like to know…and also what medium would be used (Google or the BEAMbot).

Thanks,

Jess

Here’s what apparently happened: Radack looked up a PGP key that was named for “Glenn Greenwald” on the MIT key server (see Greenwald’s tweet below), and used it to send this email.

But she never checked to make sure it was really Greenwald’s key. And it wasn’t. Whoever supplied Radack’s email to cryptome.org (presumably the person who created the false key) was therefore able to intercept and decrypt the email.

These are the people who think they know better than anyone else how the US should manage its national security, the people who started a media company with a side business selling security tools, the ones who like to pretend they’re experts on securing stolen NSA material — falling for a pathetically simple social engineering hack like this. They can’t even keep their own email secure.

Imagine if she had been emailing (what she thought were) encrypted NSA documents from Edward Snowden to Glenn Greenwald, and also sending them to an unknown third party.

What’s even more hilarious is that after it became obvious Radack had been tricked into using a false PGP key, she went back and deleted several tweets in which she admitted she did send the email and complained that Cryptome was being unfair to her. Favstar still has a copy of one:

Here’s Greenwald’s only comment, uncharacteristically terse; notice that he somehow fails to mention Snowden’s lawyer actually used this key:

UPDATE at 4/8/14 2:01:24 pm

Here’s a screenshot showing more of the tweets Radack deleted when she realized what had happened:

It’s an entirely real PGP key, Glenn.

There’s a difference between something being fake and something being misrepresented. You’re an expert at that, so I’m surprised you made this error.

Remarkable, but not entirely unsurprising. My knowledge in this area is pretty low, but I’d have thought Snowden’s lawyer would be a bit more tech savvy. If only on her famous client’s advice.

OT: (I don’t mean to derail the thread, but I’ve been wanting to comment on the excellent web technology in place here)

While I can’t remark on PGP/email security, what I can comment on, though, is LGF: I’ve been using the ‘Spy mode’ for both threads and the Master Spy mode. Both excellent tools. Not only that, but I’ve been thinking about how well set up LGF is, compared to most blogs. What other comment sites let you change the font styles, insert quotes, strikethroughs, etc, so easily? What other site allows inclusion of images, spell checking, previews, etc?

It is so well set-out that it is, initially, almost hard to notice- particularly as Charles works (probably constantly!) to make subtle improvements here and there. Over the past few weeks I have just been astounded at how technically proficient Charles must be to have set this place up. Really - it is great to be part of this. There are very few websites and web communities out there like this one - it feels genuinely good to be part of the LGF club: it has the look of exclusivity with its high-end appearance (in terms of commenting, reading threads, the menu, etc), but the feel of a neighbourhood (based on how well the posters know each other and the common decency here). Thanks guys - and thanks Charles !

I only wish I could put a site like this together - and in a way I hope LGF stays like it is, with this community feel to it. It is a special place, to be sure.

Looking forward to checking out the features on my tablet and mobile. Using the web developer tools in my browser shows that so much of the goodness here is CSS-based. Incredible, I’ve really got to learn CSS and JavaScript. I’d love to be able to put up a site like this, and I feel a bit of a lunk that my skills in this area are so minimal.

Sorry to go so off-topic! Looking forward to reading the thread.

The blase-ness about Snowden being held by the FSB is a pretty good demonstration that these folks aren’t thinking about hum-int. Which is pretty embarassing atop their confidence that they understand sig-int.

Hi Glenn,

As Snowden’s lawyer could you please fill me in every once in a while on what you will be doing with him?

Well said lawhawk. I actually wonder how much of the stuff released by Snowden and Greenwald is true, and how much is hype? I wonder if we’ll ever find out - for example, the claims made about being able to read anyone’s email, etc, seem a tad exaggerated. But sadly, it seems most people have bought what Greenwald and Snowden were selling. It’d be nice to have an ex-spy agency, tech-savvy person analyze Snowden’s claims. I’d guess probably 10 % of what he’s said is true and the rest is hype.

One source close to Snowden tells Vanity Fair that he and WikiLeaks staffer Sarah Harrison moved multiple times and at one point lived with an American family outside Moscow. Snowden and Harrision’s time together “was a little bit of a love-hate thing,” says a person close to WikiLeaks. “They were stuck in close quarters there for a long time.” Snowden is fastidious and Harrison is not, this person says.

Facts don’t require citation. Facts are repeated until factual. Facts are repeated until their soothing embrace makes the bad librul feelings go away, like a warm hug or a blanket cocoon.

Repeat the slowness of police to yourself until you are sufficiently smug and self-satisfied. The cycle is then complete.

NYPD has a 9.1 minute response time. It’s been over 10 minutes in the past.

But, and there’s that word, it doesn’t mean everyone should carry firearms, not when NYC has lower homicide and crime rates than most other major metro areas and even many rural areas on a per capita basis.

[edited =]

The 9.1 minute is the aggregate for all calls to 911 (such as non-critical calls). Critical calls, which would be for crimes in progress, have a response time of under 5 minutes. Serious calls have a response time of about 5.5 minutes.

In Atlanta last year it took, on average, 11 minutes and 12 seconds from the time a high-priority 911 call was received until an Atlanta police officer showed up at the scene. The response times reported by the El Paso (Texas) Police Department were only one second quicker than Atlanta’s, with an average of 11 minutes and 11 seconds.

The Denver Police Department posted a response time of 11 minutes flat. According to the Journal Constitution story, police in Tucson, Ariz., responded, on average, in 10 minutes and 11 seconds.

Police in Kansas City, Mo., and Oklahoma City posted average response times of less than 10 minutes. In Nashville-Davidson County, police recorded average response times below 9 minutes.

I assume it would help to have more funding for the police, if that funding went for more officers on patrol, instead of expensive SWAT / military equipment. Less of a police focus on victimless crimes (e.g. the epic fail War on Drugs) should help. Speaking of the failed War on Drugs, it would also help not to release violent offenders early from prison, to make room for non-violent drug users with mandatory minimum sentences.

I wonder if Snowden has any idea how much the Russian FSB is spying on him, and his friends and relatives, right now.

re: #72 sattv4u2

Not every metro area is as compact as say NYC or has as many LEOs as the NYPD (largest police force in the world). LAPD oversees a far greater geographical area with fewer police officers, so they would have a longer response time. Rural police departments would have similar issues, especially at the fringes of their coverage areas. If an incident occurs 30 miles up the road, it’s still going to take time to get there going 100mph.

But it’s rather funny to see a right winger gun nut using a infiltration Terminator (as portrayed by Summer Glau) as how to be armed to protect themselves.

Terminators that eradicated the human race with the rise of Skynet, except for the handful that the resistance managed to convert for personal protection duties for John Connor on several occasions.

It’d be nice to have an ex-spy agency, tech-savvy person analyze Snowden’s claims. I’d guess probably 10 % of what he’s said is true and the rest is hype.

The irony is, if you’re in the industry and have a security clearance, you can’t go analyze the source material because you’re then mishandling classified information. You can only go by secondhand reports.

One of Greenwald’s favorite tricks is to jump immediately from “what is technically possible” to “they’re doing it to everybody!” It’s like taking a briefing from the local Parks and Recreation department showing the purchase of four new chainsaws and concluding that the city tree guys are going to break into your home and chop up your family in the middle of the night.

The problem with these ‘you need a gun RIGHT NOW!!!’ things is that there is a grain of truth to it. I know someone whose father actually was faced with a home invasion and responded with deadly force, killing one and wounding the other invader. If they invade your home, and don’t take the precaution of masks, you can’t assume that they’ll leave you alive once they know where the silver and jewelry are kept.

So, yeah, having a gun in a situation like that may save your life.

But those situations are rare, far more rare than ‘angry person shoots friend/wife/lover because gun was at hand’. Perhaps even rarer than accidental shootings. These happen because people become convinced that America is such a dangerous place they need to have a gun to be safe, with the result that there are so many guns that everyone is LESS safe.

An armed society is not necessarily a polite society. It IS, however, a society where more people will get shot.

Jacob Applebaum’s response to Cryptome is such a weaselly, transparent attempt at spin that I have to post it too:

Date: Tue, 8 Apr 2014 13:38:22 +0000
Subject: disinformation about PGP
From: Jacob Appelbaum <jacob@appelbaum.net>
To: John Young <jya@pipeline.com>

Hi John,

I saw your latest leak about Glenn and Jesselyn using PGP to exchange
emails. I did some digging and I think you’ve come to the wrong
conclusion about everything. Actually, I think you are actively being
played by someone to mess with everyone involved.

The speculation about PGP being broken is probably incorrect. It
appears that Jesselyn sent that email to three different email
addresses and the PGP encrypted message on Cryptome is truncated or
tampered with in some fashion to remove evidence of the third key that
was used. Only two of the three email addresses belonged to Glenn. It
was also encrypted to three keys, Glenn, Jesselyn and to a third key
that is run by an unknown hostile party. The third likely belongs to
your leaker/source. The attacker published a PGP key for that address
to confuse people who are trying to communication with Glenn securely.
This clearly confused Jesselyn or her PGP mail client. I do not
believe that this is evidence of her or Glenn being compromised (other
than the social engineering issue at hand) nor is this evidence of PGP
being broken. Rather, it is a user interface security problem with
iPGMail that is quite common with PGP/GnuPG in general.

Yep. It’s a culture of fear really and I think that’s sad. As I said above, I am glad I don’t live in such a world. I’m in Washington D.C quite a bit, an area that has had its fair share of violent crime. I don’t feel the need to be armed or threatened by everyone I encounter.

It can get really boring when the pitcher just keeps throwing to first over and over again. After a specific number of throws, the runner should get to go to second if he hasn’t been picked off. That would help stolen base numbers as well, which would add more entertainment value.

Which hints at a fundamental problem for our anarchist buddies: the whole of public key cryptography is based on chains of trust back to Certificate Authorities. Literal capital-A Authorities who, directly or indirectly, determine your online identity. No authorities, no identity confirmation, and hey, “I’m Greenwald/Spartacus!”

And when I have to get for-reals PKI certs, I have to prove I’m me with government-issued identification. Which isn’t a problem if you’re not an anarchist. If you are an anarchist, I suppose The Market will punish private Certificate Authorities that don’t properly manage identities, maybe, somehow. Unless they compromise your identity secretly, of course.

One easy peasy way to shorten the gametime

do NOT allow the batter out of the box or the pitcher off the mound between EVERY pitch

When I lived in Seattle, they used to do a re-broadcast of the the game later in the evening. Left all the pitches / pickoff tosses in, but simply edited out the elaborate ritual of adjusting the batting glove after every swing (or non-swing).

Seems like took less than an hour to watch the full game. (oh yes, they did have the full compliment of commercials)

Speaking of certificates, this news is a royal pain in the nethers:

threatpost.com

If you noticed our server go away for a little while earlier today, it’s because we were patching OpenSSL to fix this bug.

But now we’ll need to install a new SSL certificate, because there’s no way to know if someone already grabbed our private keys by exploiting the “Heartbleed” bug. And the bug has been in the wild for almost 2 years. Ow. Ouch. Ooch. Not good.

When our new certificate is installed, I’m afraid the last step is going to be to ask everyone to change their passwords. I may have to require it somehow.

There’s nothing unusual about LGF in this — a lot of the biggest sites on the web are also affected, and nobody knows how many were actually compromised by this OpenSSL bug.

Kerry had a tough morning
Bipartisan critics slam Kerry on foreign policy

Kerry’s successor at the committee helm, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., pressed him about possible concessions by the West in the nuclear talks involving Iran and six world powers. One of the leading proponents of sanctions on Iran, Menendez sought assurances that the U.S. would impose economic sanctions if Iran and Russia move forward with a reported oil-for-goods contract.

On the question of the fate of a heavy water plutonium reactor in Iran, Menendez expressed exasperation.

“Originally we were told that’s going to be dismantled. Now we are told we are going to find a different purpose for it. It continues to morph into different areas,” he said.

re: #183 Charles Johnson

Some high-profile sites, including Yahoo Mail, Lastpass, the OpenSSL site and the main FBI site have been confirmed to leak certain information via the bug. There also is a proof-of-concept exploit for the flaw posted on Github.

Yoikes, and away. And how many other sites? I’d gather that it’s most of them, considering it’s one of the primary SSL libraries.

“The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users,” the description says.

“You are likely to be affected either directly or indirectly. OpenSSL is the most popular open source cryptographic library and TLS (transport layer security) implementation used to encrypt traffic on the Internet. Your popular social site, your company’s site, commerce site, hobby site, site you install software from or even sites run by your government might be using vulnerable OpenSSL. Many of online services use TLS to both to identify themselves to you and to protect your privacy and transactions. You might have networked appliances with logins secured by this buggy implementation of the TLS. Furthermore you might have client side software on your computer that could expose the data from your computer if you connect to compromised services.”

OpenSSL 1.0.1g also includes a fix that addresses a certain variety of side-channel attack.

Super.

Worse than that - even after you patch the OS to fix the OpenSSL bug, you then have to revoke and reissue the SSL certificate and install the new one.

We’re all patched here - checking to see if the certificate authority will revoke/reissue without charging for a new one.

Four men in Egypt were sentence for up to 8 years in prison for organizing deviant sex parties, wearing women’s clothing and makeup.
Homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt but authorities often use laws banning debauchery to persecute gay people. The sentencing has drawn the criticism from human rights groups around the world.

That’s what makes this bug so bad - it actually lets a hacker grab the private keys for your installed SSL certificate. If you keep using the cert even after installing the patch, you’re still vulnerable if the site was already compromised.

Changing passwords is the last step after the patch and new certificate are installed.

As long as it’s ‘one and done’, not changing them every month or so. Our company requires you change your password periodically, and the company that does our timesheets also requires it, but the periods are different.

Russia May Be Shielding Neiman Marcus Hackers

The data breach at upscale retailer Neiman Marcus discovered this past January was the work of an infamous Russian crime syndicate responsible for the theft of over 160 million credit cards in the past seven years, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek report. U.S. law enforcement has been after the group for years, the report said, but has been hampered by a studied disinterest on the part of Russian officials.

The criminal syndicate has been connected to credit cards stolen from over 100 different companies since 2005, including J. C. Penney, 7-Eleven and Citigroup, U.S. officials told the magazine.

It’s not that the Russians aren’t listening. Some U.S. officials think Russia uses information shared by the FBI to identify talented hackers who can be recruited for national-security purposes, such as the cyberattacks currently being conducted against Ukraine, according to Bloomberg Businessweek’s sources.

I don’t know what to conclude at this point. Putin may have needed to boost his approval numbers at home. He may have been pressured into going after Ukraine, perhaps by powerful oligarchs, or powerful Admirals and Generals, or both.

Ukraine will be a drain on Russia’s economy, which is doubly-unfortunate, because this may pressure Putin to commit even more aggression, soon. Ultimately Russia’s goal may be access to Iran’s oil, strong influence in Syria, and (combined with their influence in northern Georgia, and in Crimea) this would give Russia the warm-water naval ports they’re wanted so badly for many years.

So, instead of expanding west into Europe, or east into Asia, Russia would aggressively “expand” southward, towards the Middle East. What could possibly go wrong?

The above are only my rambling speculations.

If Obama decided that he just absolutely had to have Baja California, or Vancouver Island, I wonder what doddering old fool Duma member Ivan McCainski would angrily expect Putin to do about it.

Superpowers can dick around with their neighbors with about as much short-term impunity as they’d like. Water is wet, sky is blue.

We could annex Canada and no one would notice.

In light of the agreements Ukraine made in 1991, which you mention, I’m struck by how very unfortunate this all is: the lesson is loud and clear that you either have nukes and you’re safe, or you don’t have nukes and you’re not safe. To say the same thing another way, paper treaties don’t mean much.

This is really a tragedy. I assume technologies to make nukes will continue to improve, e.g. precision manufacturing, even 3D printing of some parts. Putin has made the world much more dangerous.

The main industrial constraint that holds back nuclear proliferation is the actual possession and enrichment of the fissile material itself, which is a scale-of-high-tech-infrastructure sort of problem. 3D printers and the like are not likely to meaningfully change this situation.

Are “all” of Snowden’s attorneys working for free, and just the FSB people getting paid?

I rather doubt Snowball has a “dream team”.

Another thing that struck me in that VF article was the report that Snowball considers his politics different from Assange. His weasel words here:

“On the crucial ways he differs from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: “We don’t share identical politics. I am not anti-secrecy. I’m pro-accountability. I’ve made many statements indicating both the importance of secrecy and spying, and my support for the working-level people at the N.S.A. and other agencies. It’s the senior officials you have to watch out for.”

Yikes. Embedded Getty images act very weird in the mobile version. They gradually shrink down, then sort of pulsate larger and smaller. Bizarre.

Good point. We didn’t even bother to test the uranium bomb in New Mexico. It’s relatively easy to make uranium explode. Much harder for plutonium, and that’s what we tested in New Mexico. (Hiroshima was uranium, Nagasaki was plutonium.)

So access to fissile material (enriched uranium) makes it relatively easy to make a bomb. But this is not very “scalable”. To really scale up, plutonium is better. That’s why I’m very unhappy that North Korea actually did one or more plutonium detonations, as low-yield as they were.

Anyway, I agree with you, technologies like precision manufacturing would have to improve A LOT before it makes a difference. BUT the rate of technological growth is so awesome, I suppose (only speculating, of course) that in 10 years, we may have the ability to manufacture things to very fine tolerances, that seem unthinkable today. E.g. 30 metal wires that are almost exactly the same length… :(

It’s worth noting that this COULD make things easier BOTH for the primitive uranium approach, and the more advanced but infinitely more difficult plutonium approach. For example, simply being able to 3D print two shapes the size of a car, which would come together (the “gun design”) for a uranium detonation, might mean that a group of terrorists who got their hands on enough U-235 could have an easy time putting it into a bomb.

Again, this is only speculation. I agree with you completely that current technology to make a plutonium explosion is just about impossible to achieve, unless you’re an established government with an established nuclear industry.

Last week or the week before, I put a response to a churlish comment from KT, detailing another option. Supporting movements of the various little nations in Russia that want to leave. Like Chechnya, Dagestan, and Tatarstan, among many others.

After all, if Russia supports the right of Crimea to leave Ukraine, they should be willing to support giving those groups in Russia who want to leave a choice too. That is, if Putin is a man.

Except not.

Miley (that Miley, whose tongue-lolling stunt was used in the Breitbart poster) sang a song on SNL and there was a brief caption MICHELE BACHMANN flashed across the screen, but Miley’s face at all times was Miley. She doesn’t look anything like Michele Bachmann, BTW.

And they had some young hot dude with a spray-on tan dancing the part of “Boehner” but at no time was Boehner’s face superimposed on the young hot dude’s face.

Actually it was pretty clever.

I took Amtrak many many years ago, from Seattle to St. Louis. If memory serves me, we rolled in to St. Louis right on the appointed minute, and exactly 24 hours late. (And no, we weren’t held up by bad weather). If I wanted to visit my dad in Florida, it would be a minimum of 600 bucks (one way), I’d have to drive 250 miles to get TO the train station, and it would be 3+ days enroute, from Memphis, to Chicago, To Washington, then on to Florida.

Except for areas like the NE Corridor, we don’t have a functional passenger rail system for the most part. That’s a pity, because traveling by train you actually get to SEE the country. The thing that amazed me most, the number of adults that stop what they are doing and wave as the train goes by.

We’ve really enjoyed our travel on Amtrak.

Of course, it is important to understand the limitations and realities of travel inherent in our system. Our passenger rail has nothing on those found in Europe or Japan.

I went round trip from Connecticut to DC back in the 80s to visit my sister. I was disappointed in the uncomfortable seats and the disgusting restaurant car where all the food was from plastic bags like what you find in 7-11s.

Thing is IMO is it’s a stupid distraction. If you want to own a gun to protect yourself, I think that should be allowed and that’s something I know POTUS agrees with too. What I have and I know POTUS as do many have a problem with are people who think they need to own a frigging arsenal to “protect” themselves.

And worse, in my opinion, is the fact that they have not a lick of training. Nor are they given a psychological assessment.

If people have guns I’d like to be reasonably certain they know how to use them and they aren’t going to use them because of impulse control problems or because voices in their yea told them to kill the devils.

The flipside is, it’s a hell of a lot more comfortable than air travel these days, and on the NE corridor, at least, the time investment is comparable. And it’s cheaper.

The Jays won the World Series a couple of decades ago.

Then the owners discovered what the owner of the Maple Leafs already knew: If you have a local monopoly you don’t have to deliver a quality product.

So in both cases, despite the fact the teams suck, the stadiums are full for every game. This is highly profitable.

This phenomena is a wonderful example of our economic system’s weaknesses.

Well, I’d put it more subtly (I don’t want someone to defend themselves in a crowded area—-they’ll shoot more than the attacker, and I don’t want them to use a heavy duty bullet that could punch through a wall and nail a next door neighbor).

IMO, long distance rail travel in the US will forever be consigned to a quaint, money losing, touristy curiosity, absent AMTRAK building its own tracks. Right now they lease time on freight railroads, and those railroads have no reason to upgrade their tracks to handle high speed passenger trains, and no inclination to muck with their own schedules to accomodate them.

And AMTRAK will never build its own tracks, because Congress has to choose to do it, and the Free Marketeers won’t allow it.

There ARE defined corridors where rail travel WILL flourish, like the Northeast Corridor.
