"Investigation is ongoing and additional charges are a possibility," Emily Langlie, communications director for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Washington, told CNN via email.
The complaint also refers to a Slack channel and says she posted there under the name "erratic." While the complaint partially edits the channel's name, it cites from it. The channel, called netcrave, was deleted early Tuesday afternoon, but CNN managed to see erratic posts on it hours before.
While the indictment lists the channel only as "Net *****", CNN was able to confirm the full name of "netcrave" by comparing quotes listed in the indictment with those live in the netcrave channel.
In a June 27 Slack call, erratic pasted a long list of compressed file names and their sizes, indicating that they were cached files with hacked files. Many were listed as dozens of gigabytes, indicating a huge mass of files.
Not all the file names on the list made it clear where they were supposedly hacked, but erratic some of them discussed in Slack. One of the files, which was listed for 28 GB of data, was "capitol one", wrote erratic later in the chat. Another website is erroneously listed as "ohio.gov Department of Transportation." Erratic also mentioned British telecommunications company Vodafone, California IT company Infoblox, Ford and Michigan State University.
Erratic only lists filenames in the Slack channel, not files themselves.

"In addition, we have not been contacted by the FBI, but if we contact, we intend to cooperate with law enforcement. "

" We are investigating to determine if Ford's information is involved, "Ford spokeswoman Monique Brentley told CNN. [1
"MSU receives hundreds of threats and attacks every day on the system v year, "Michigan spokeswoman Emily Guerrant said in an email. "We're investigating and averting them every day, and it's hard to know if one of them was a recent alleged hacker from the Capital One situation. I flagged the weak channel lookup and our team is watching it, but even it wasn't There's a lot for them to go on. "
