    VA Employee Accused of Trying To Sell Vetsí SSNs, Arrested Outside Server Room Weeks

    VA Employee Accused of Trying To Sell Vetsí SSNs, Arrested Outside Server Room Weeks After He Was Fired






    6:57 PM 01/27/2018

    A Department of Veterans Affairs database administrator was indicted for allegedly attempting to sell vetsí social security numbers and stealing their identities.

    The indictment, unsealed Thursday, charges that Phillip Hill of Benton, Ark. tried to sell the data for $100,000 to a confidential informant working with law enforcement. The data was the personal info of veterans, their dependents, and VA employees, prosecutors said.
    Hill was terminated by the VA Dec. 6, but told the informant that even after being fired, he could access the information remotely by logging in using a government computer still in his possession, or even by stealing an entire server.

    Police arrested Hill outside the VA complex where the data was housed Dec. 18, weeks after he was fired. Investigators said they discovered that he had blank ID cards and had stolen someoneís identity.

    They said they arrested him before he was able to sell the data.

    He has been charged with attempted trafficking in access devices, aggravated identity theft, and possession of access device making equipment, local news outlet ArkLaTex reported. He has been released on bond.

    The case highlights the ongoing cyber threats faced by government bodies. In the House of Representatives, after investigators found unauthorized logins by staffers and determined that data was being removed from the network, authorities were far slower to react than Arkansas law enforcement, and a server containing House data that was evidence in the probe was then physically stolen, officials said.

    Even then, the House employees ó Pakistani-born IT aide Imran Awan and his family ó were banned from the network but still permitted to physically access the Capitol, and a police report alleges that months later, Awan was in the building at midnight with a laptop with the username RepDWS, referring to his employer, Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Even then, Awan was not arrested for unauthorized access.
