Just in time for tonight’s vice presidential debate, Guccifer 2.0, the hacker with alleged ties to the Russian government, posted over 800 GBs of files pilfered from Clinton Foundation servers. The leak revealed the email addresses of countless wealthy donors, like mega-movie-maker, J.J. Abrams.
“Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security,” Guccifer wrote on his website. “It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server.”
According to screenshots, the files include spreadsheets tracking Foundation donors and financial institutions that have donated to lawmakers. A Clinton Foundation spokesman declined to comment on the record about the alleged hack. One spreadsheet appears to detail how much banks have given to lawmakers on the House Financial Services Committee. Another document shows how much banks gave to Democratic lawmakers and how much those banks received from the 2008 bailout bill to stabilize the financial sector, known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. “It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds,” wrote Guccifer 2.0. Some cybersecurity experts believe Guccifer 2.0 is an invented identity that the Russian government is using to release files it obtains through hacking. h/t politico
Russian intelligence services are suspected in a series of high-profile election hacks targeting Democratic institutions, party officials and state voter-registration databases.
Guccifer 2.0 also posted a special message for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, ” I’m pleased to congratulate Wikileaks on their 10th anniversary!!! Julian, you are really cool! Stay safe and sound!”
