A Man Hacked Into A Jail System To release His Friend Earlier

A man named Konrads Voits was sentenced to 7 years and 3 months for hacking into the Washtenaw County Jail. After gaining access to the system, he modified the prisoner record of his friend to reduce the sentence time. Mr. Voits was asked to pay $235,488 dollars and should serve 3 years of supervised release.

Konrad’s admitted that between January and March 2017, he engaged in the attack using a social engineering campaign to hack into the Washtenaw County Jail’s computer system. He used to send mail bursts to county employees redirecting them to ewashtenaw.org which is a carbon copy of the official website.

The email burst was unsuccessful, however, when he called the employees of the jail referencing himself as jail IT staff, he tricked them into installing a fake update containing malware that steals usernames, emails, and passwords of the jailers. The malware was able to collect the employee records of 1600 employees.

“Through the installation and use of this malware, Konrad’s was able to gain full access to the County network, including access to sensitive County records such as the jail system (the computer program used  to monitor and track inmates in the County Jail), search warrant affidavits, internal discipline records, and County employee personal information,” the plea agreement reads.

When he accessed the inmate records, IT staff were able to locate the intrusion immediately using XJail the inmate management system. The staff logged his activity and discovered he had modified the records of one prisoner by altering the release date. The court documents didn’t go into the technical details of how the hack took place but the entry of the prisoner was altered to its previous state and the FBI was called to track down the intruder of the system. Voice was arrested last summer and pleaded guilty in December 2017.
