"In the case of Ms. Winner she accessed the documents through digital certificates like a digital access badge, viewed it, sent it to the printer, printed this off, we see the digital footprint on the logs on the network and then we actually see the actual document that "The Intercept " scanned, paper", said Principal Information Security Consultant Brandon McCrillis. "She was not expecting any of this".
In its announcement of the arrest, the Justice Department said victor, 25, of Augusta, Georgia, has been charged in U.S. District Court with copying classified documents and mailing them to a reporter with an unnamed news organization. She could face up to a 10-year sentence.
Victor had top security clearance from her time serving in the Air Force for six years. Her family knew nearly nothing about her work life, they said.
Gary Davis, Winner's stepfather, said she turned down a full college scholarship to join the Air Force. He added: "Everyone in America knows what she looks like at this point".
Victor also told her mother she feared for her life and the life of her pets, and asked her mother to "play up that angle", Solari alleged. The media outlet can't be prosecuted for publishing the documents even if they were stolen thanks to First Amendment protections. The document, according to the indictment, was clearly marked as "top secret". That leaked report was the basis of an article published Monday by The Intercept. The report did not show any evidence the hack affected any votes.
Winner's attorney says she should be released and prosecutors are exaggerating the threat she poses.
"She was afraid she was going to disappear, that they were going to make her disappear". But with no prior history, that can't be said of victor.
Victor served in the Air Force from December 2010 to 2016.
Prosecutors warned U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps that victor might have more stolen secrets.

UK Election: Theresa May toughens stance on terrorism ahead of key election
Two days before the election, Theresa May said she wanted to make it easier to deport foreign terror suspects. One of those they were most concerned about was Butt.
"She's a patriot. She served her nation with distinguished honor", Gary said, CBS reports.
The indictment was filed late Wednesday in the U.S. District Court in Augusta where victor, 25, is expected to appear for a detention hearing this afternoon.
A federal judge denied Winner's request for bond. They want to deem victor sinister because as a millennial she freely uses technology, he said.
The FBI said unauthorized disclosure of the secret document "could reasonably result in exceptionally grave damage to the national security", though the government has not alleged that victor sought to share the report with foreign agents. "She doesn't deserve that", Winner's mother told WSB-TV. She's not going to be treated fairly.
"I think she's trying to be courageous for me".
Victor became the first person charged with leaking classified information to the media under the administration of President Donald Trump. Court records say victor held a top-secret security clearance.
Prosecutors said she also instructed family members to transfer $30,000 into her mother's account so she'd appear poor enough for a court-appointed attorney. Her mugshot leaked to Twitter on Wednesday.
Davis said she received a commendation for aiding in the deaths of more than 100 enemy combatants and more than 250 enemy captures.
Winner, the prosecutor said, had notes about software to enter the "dark" web anonymously, to change SIM card on cell phone to use anonymously, and setting up a single-use, burner email account. Numerous accounts claim to be run by agency employees unhappy with Trump.
