Suspected source of leaked US intelligence has been arrested.
Airman 1st Class Jack Teixeira was arrested at his home yesterday in connection with his alleged role in the leak of classified information over Discord. The 21-year-old cyber transport systems specialist is, or was, assigned to the Massachusetts Air National Guard's 102nd Intelligence Wing at Otis Air National Guard Base on Cape Cod. An Airman 1st Class is a junior enlisted rank, an E-3, the equivalent of a US Army Private First Class or a US Navy Seaman. The New York Times observes that how Airman Texieira obtained access to the range of classified information he's alleged to have shared under his nom-de-hack OG with the even younger members of his Discord Club remains unclear. The investigation continues, and according to Reuters Discord is cooperating with the authorities. For further information regarding the Discord Papers see, The CyberWire Pro.
