Palin’s mail hacker charged with 3 more crimes

A University of Tennessee student accused of illegally breaking into the email account of Alaska governor Sarah Palin has been hit with three new felony charges in connection with the case. David Kernell on Monday pleaded not guilty to the new charges, which include fraud, unlawful electronic transmission of material outside Tennessee and attempts to conceal records to impede an FBI investigation. Previously, he was charged with a single felony count of unauthorized access of a protected computer. The new counts come as defense attorneys not involved in the case have roundly criticized the soundness of the the previous charge. Under US law, unauthorized access of a protected computer should be charged as a misdemeanor except when it’s used to further a separate crime. Prosecutors had argued that the other crime was the unauthorized access of Palin’s email account. That prompted critics to argue prosecutors were applying circular reasoning.

In September, while Palin was the Republican vice presidential candidate, Kernell used publicly available information to reset her Yahoo! email account, according to an indictment filed in the case. Prosecutors followed a string of breadcrumbs Kernell allegedly dropped, including the sloppy use of an anonymous proxy service and a first-person account left on hacker website 4chan.org. The case drew international headlines after a handful of material from Palin’s account was posted on Wikileaks. A trial in the case has been rescheduled for October 27. It had previously been slated for May. Kernell is the son of state Representative Mike Kernell, chairman of Tennessee’s House Government Operations Committee.

    I don't care if people think she is dumb. If she was in power we would be building huge billion dollar natural gas pipelines in Alaska and massively stimulating Americas economy with productive work and energy. But instead, Obama just wants to hand out a bunch of money to those who do not deserve it, completely destroying Americas infrastructure.

    Anyways, I'm glad I live in Alaska where there is still plenty of high paying work to go around. Anyone with a highschool diploma could make 6 figures here if you're willing to work. THAT IS HOW IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE. I feel sorry for the rest of you down in the states.

    she comes from Alaska… its a friggin welfare state who would be so drastically different and probably not even a state if it wasnt for the oil. She would be horrible and useless as a VP, and even worse as a president. That said i would have think John McCain would have done better in power so far, hes not nearly as concerned with re-election and the hard decisions would be made. Now were trying to fix the economy, cover everyone, give jobs and rights to illegal-immigrants, and a slew of other things Barack promised. Add that to the fact that he came on a notion of doing everything backwards from Bush and we have our military standing down when provoked across the world most recently by a bunch of smaller chinese vessels who threatened the boat.

    Barack may be the better choice im not sure but i dont like what happening so far.

    AS for the hacker, people like him need to be made examples of. But this guy seemeed like an idiot and its lucky no one else smarter decided to do this or they would have been able to cover their tracks.

    He should have thought before he did it and used TOR instead unlucky to him hope he don't go down for it though the information WAS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE her fault for choosing a weak email provider

    "including the sloppy use of an anonymous proxy service"

    Either with sloppy use or not wasn't that supposed to keep us anonymous?

    Was Tor the anonymous proxy they are mentioning?

  15. lol
    March 10th, 2009 | 13:54

    Can you be tracked thru TOR ?

    Regardless of politics, the guy should not hacked into her account. I hope he will spend years in jail. I also hope those former state employees now being sued by Joe the Plumber will pay their dues too. They should not arbitrarily go into the state computers and checked up on him without a legitimate reason.

    The guy didn't use TOR he used a php proxy website called ctunnel, which could have been tracked very easily through their server logs.

    "Anyone with a highschool diploma could make 6 figures here if you're willing to work. THAT IS HOW IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE. I feel sorry for the rest of you down in the states."

    You don't have to live in the icy tundra to get that, Alaska is just some chunk of frozen crapland that even Russia didn't want so they sold it to the US.

    Pretty cool to look at and visit (much like a zoo is) but I sure as hell wouldn't want to be stuck living there.

    But I do feel sorry for those dealing with low pay, low employment rates and sad politics in the states too; actually, no I don't, born losers will always be losers.

    It is (was) easier to make 6 figures in the us then other countries based on ingenuity, education or being able to think outside of the box and NOT join the labor ranks.

    Things have gotten tough because of the stupidity and greed of a few. I dont honestly see how no one in power saw this housing crisis coming. THe banks were issuing loans and selling the loans to other countries based soley on the fact that every year the house would go up 6-10% like clockwork so that even if the person defaulted the house would be profitable in auction, that was what made the loans attractive to everyone. How come no one looked at that and saw how dumb that was. Next, the people that got the loans are dumbasses who deserve to be made homeless. They are mostly lower income lower education morons who pretended not to know what was going on, i dont have a house i would have loved to buy one but i cant afford it making $500 a week. The people that said to themselves "i make $2k a month so a $1k mortgage is fine" deserve what they got.

    Sorry for the hugely off topic rant im just sick of this greed by the rich and stupidity by the poor.

    But back on topic, Palin is a moron who was used by the republicans and it almost worked. And this hacker(barely a hacker) needs to get years in prison.

    it's easy to track someone down. the FBI merely got records from Yahoo to see what IP# logged in under her name and at what date/time. They narrow it down to the IP#'s that are not used by Palin.

    Even if you go to an internet cafe or w/e, if there's a security camera around (and there usually are), they just review the security tapes and see who's in view during the exact time that the cafe's IP# accessed her email account.

    This is just some common sense techniques. I'm sure the FBI have a ton more resources, supergeeks, equipment, manpower, etc. at their disposal. Hacking is a serious crime now.

    Noob Cliff Notes:

    A wifi hotspot… aka an open network somewhere, not that hard to find an unsecured wifi connection somewhere.

    A computer that has never been used for anything that can be tracked to you.

    Clothing that makes you less "recordable", in case cameras along the way or at the place records you. (this applies to being recognized or describable.. by others.

    Throw in tor, proxie servers in various forms, and a few other less used "tricks" and::::::::::::

    the idiot would have not been caught.

    Think about it, if i used a computer that I bought with cash, used. Redid the entire computer, never used it for anything other then "bad" stuff, and followed the stuff above, how could they have caught ya.

    Glad I am not into that stuff.

    March 10th, 2009 | 20:40

    it really depends on the severity of your crimes, at that point they would have to weigh in the effort/reward. and if it's not worth it then they won't try. but if you do something illegal repeatedly then they will do w/e they can to track you down.

    JEZUS we have some stupid noobs here. Listen up dweebs, YOU CAN BE TRACKED NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO OR HOW YOU DO IT on the net. How do you think the warez sites in Russia were tracked? Or the stupid moron running Oink who thought he was safe cause it was supposed to be private only. Or the "Top Sites" where they nail everyone from the owner down to the posters. You think you cannot be tracked? Tell that to the people from Drink or die and a thousand other cracker/hacker sites that have been nailed and shut down or have members in prison. You think your safe using anonymous ISP's or hacking someone else's site or using a wifi? Dont be fricking stupid! Your computer places a watermark which is like a fingerprint for each computer and CANNOT be changed or altered (2600 has tried numerous times and failed each time and they are better hackers then anyone that comes here) called the NNTP and with that simple fingerprint, your sorry arse can be tracked anywhere in the world. With all the sites in the supposed "safe" countries being shut down and their owners being prosecuted, you children should have learned by now the simple rule of hacking…"anything you can make, someone else can break" or "there is NO site that cannot be hacked or program that cannot be cracked or tracked given sufficient time and computing power" Read it, learn it, love it, live by it. Class is dismissed.

  35. Real sense
    March 11th, 2009 | 09:50

    well "common sense", you don't make much sense at all. An unsecure wifi and untraceable computer (e.g. bought 2nd hand using cash) would be enough.
    If the FBI were that good, why 68% of crimes are left unsolved??? They're just human and their methods as imperfect as themselves, so you just need to be a bit less imperfect than them to trick them.

    GODDAMN, It's not like anyone Frikken HACKED her account. That idiot just got her birthdate from wikipedia and he answered the stupid security question which he got the answer to on Wiki. He was definetly a /b/tard and so, the first place he would go? /b/ obviously.

    He was no goddamn hacking genius. He just thought a little more than anyone else. There was nothing to do with ACCESSING A PROTECTED COMPUTER. What BS.
