Introduction

A Democratic National Committee (DNC) dossier on Hillary Clinton has been leaked by the same hacker who claims to have breached the DNC’s servers to obtain a trove of research on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

A hacker who goes by the moniker Guccifer 2.0, a nod to Romanian hacker Guccifer who is now in prison, has published what the hacker claims to be a dossier on Hillary Clinton.

In a blog post today, Guccifer 2.0 stated that the trove of data – totaling 78MB – is “a big folder of docs devoted to Hillary Clinton that I found on the DNC server.”

Hillary Clinton has notably come under criticism when it was revealed that she was using her personal email rather than her government email address for communications relating to international affairs. This revelation came to light after 42-year-old Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel, famously known as Guccifer, hacked the email account belonging to Sidney Blumenthal, the Clinton family’s confidant.

The latest breach is certain to bring the topic of cybersecurity under the scanner once again in realtion to Hillary Clinton.

In his latest post, Guccifer 2.0, an individual who also claims to be from Romania, much like the original Guccifer, stated:

The DNC collected all info about the attacks on Hillary Clinton and prepared the ways of her defense, memos, etc., including the most sensitive issues like email hacks.

Contrary to Guccifer 2.0’s claims, CrowdStrike – the security firm hired by the DNC to conduct a forensic investigation into the hack and breach of its servers has pointed the finger firmly at Russian state-sponsored hacker groups.

Specifically, the investigation is pinning the cyberespionage hacking endeavor on two government backed groups, dubbed Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear. Both the groups have breached the DNC’s email & chat communications and the network itself, respectively.

For its part, a spokesman for the Kremlin has firmly denied any involvement by the Russian government in the hacking incident.

    ——————–EDWARD SNOWDEN for President——————

    Edward Snowden swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and regarded our right to privacy as a Constitutional right. He did not profit from his revelations, and was exiled to Russia.

    HiLiary Clinton sold arms to our enemies, compromised national security, and traded favors for financial gain. As a patriotic American and a war veteran, I would rather see Edward Snowden become the president, rather than this old bag.

    Hillary stole the election from Bernie, and Hillary plans a nuclear war with Russia. You be the judge of her credibility
