Pullar admits to hacking ACC

The ACC debacle gets murkier and murkier. It todays’ Dominion Post Bronwyn Pullar, through her tame journalist, has admitted to installing malicious code at ACC in order to track her case from within.

Ms Pullar sent Dr Smith’s emailed letter to Ms Parker-Dennis on July 14. Ms Pullar forwarded the email using computer software that allows her to track each time her email has been opened and who it is subsequently forwarded to.

Ms Pullar is now demanding answers as to why her former case manager re-viewed Dr Smith’s letter four times between March 13 and March 19, the day before the New Zealand Herald published details of the contents.

Ms Parker-Dennis opened the letter three times the day before the story broke, Ms Pullar said.

She believes Ms Parker-Dennis had no legitimate reason to re-read the letter, given that she was no longer her case manager, days before its contents were leaked.

People have been wondering how she got sent the ACC spreadsheet that contained the names and addresses of more than 6000 claimants. I don’t think we need to wonder too much anymore.

These types of malicious code (malware) can also allow screenshots of what is open at the time, and the logging of keystrokes, and even the surreptitious emailing of attachments. It seems Bronwyn Pullar has hacked into the ACC systems in a calculating, premeditated and malicious manner.

The funny part is Labour has been dying in a ditch protecting her and and Michelle Boag when is it now clear from Pullar’s expose to Phil Kitchin that she was sitting at her computer in Auckland watching their every move through a piece of malicious code:

Ms Parker-Dennis reopened Dr Smith’s letter at 12.37pm on March 13. It was the first time she had opened the document this year, Ms Pullar said. “She had no business going back into my file because if she was looking for the email containing the mass privacy breach ACC had been clearly told that was an email sent to me, not one I sent to them.”

The email tracking software Ms Pullar attached to Dr Smith’s email shows it was received by Ms Parker-Dennis on July 14 last year. Ms Parker-Dennis forwarded the email to three senior ACC managers.

 The wonder is that an experienced investigative journalist has fallen into the trap of running the story of a hacker. If I were the Police investigating this case I would be serving warrants on Bronwyn Pullar and also Michelle Boag to grab their computers. Since Boag has worked very closely with Pullar it is possible that they used the same type of malicious code to try and set up Judith Collins.
