Ex-Nuclear Regulatory Commission employee accused of trying to steal nuke secrets

“A former Nuclear Regulatory Commission employee has been charged with attempting to launch a cyberattack on Department of Energy computers and steal nuclear secrets, which he then planned to sell to a foreign country.

An indictment unsealed Friday shows that 62-year-old Charles Harvey Eccleston tried to spread a malicious computer virus among department computers via email invitations to a conference.

The goal of the attack was to cause damage to 10 or more Department of Energy protected computers during a one-year period and to extract sensitive, nuclear weapons-related government information, according to the five-page indictment.”
