WASHINGTON Oct 5 The FBI has arrested a
contractor for the National Security Agency and is probing
whether he stole and disclosed highly classified computer
"source code" developed to hack into the networks of Russia,
China, Iran, North Korea and other U.S. adversaries, the New
York Times reported on Wednesday.
According to the Times, the contractor, who was arrested in
recent weeks, worked for the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton
just as former contractor Edward Snowden did, although
the information stolen in this latest incident differs from
Snowden's breach disclosed in 2013.
