A new memo reveals prosecutors in the case of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was accused of war crimes, used malware to spy on a number of officials associated with Gallagher’s defense.
Prosecutors originally claimed they sent an email loaded with malware that would determine who was leaking information to the Navy Times.
The new memo shows that not only were they using the malware to spy, but it may have been accessing more than just communications.
The malware was hidden in a logo featuring an American flag and a bald eagle atop the scales of justice and was included under lead prosecutor Cmdr. Christopher Czaplak’s signature in emails from the prosecution to several parties associated with the defense.
