Hillary Clinton Email Hacker Says It Was “Easy”

Hillary Clinton Email Hacker Says It Was “Easy”

by Samburaj DasMay 5, 2016

 Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel, infamously known as “Guccifer” has, in an interview with Fox News from a Virginia jail, claimed that he breached Hillary Clinton’s “completely unsecured” private email server, repeatedly and easily.

42-year old Lehel, best known for his hacking prowess that compromised targets such as former US President George Bush and several celebrities including Steve Martin and Leonardo di Caprio, allegedly, has revealed details of his breach of Hillary Clinton’s email account.

Speaking to Fox News who queried him if it was easy or hard to gain access to Hillary Clinton’s email account, Guccifer stated:

For me, it was easy…easy for me, for everybody.

The hacker revealed that the process of the breach began when he correctly guessed Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal’s AOL account security question in early 2013, before gaining access to Clinton’s private server.

He stated that he had accessed Clinton’s server “twice” although he deemed it was uninteresting to him at the time.

I was not paying attention. For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using with political voting stuff.

Although there isn’t much to go by with how he gained access to Hillary Clinton’s emails, he claimed that he sought the originating IP of the email. “The email header is the originating IP usually,” Lazard explained before adding that he then scanned and checked the IP with an IP scanner.

He also mentioned programs like netscan, Netmap, Angry IP and Wireshark as tools in which he checked to see if the targeted servers and ports were “alive” and open.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s campaign issued a statement refuting Guccifer’s claims which read:

There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that we would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims.

Hillary Clinton’s secret email was revealed as [email protected], her personal email during her tenure as the Secretary of State.

Guccifer was recently extradited to the United States and faces charges of unauthorized access to a protected computer, cyberstalking, aggravated identify theft, wire fraud and obstruction of justice by the US Department of Justice.

Fox News added that it could not independently verify Guccifer’s claims.

    “Guccifer never hacked my server”

    Then she needs to explain how RT obtained 20,000 of her emails, and published all the Benghazi related emails, all marked with “G” for Guccifer , publishing them over two years before she handed them over to the DOJ & State Department. Comparison with the State Department published emails shows them to be correct – actual emails either to or from HRC.

    Her alternative options are :
    a) He made a lucky guess on who sent what emails when and to whom, and the entire content of the emails verbatim !!
    b) It wasn’t him – it was someone else – who then marked them as if they had come from him. But that still leaves her as having been hacked. That sounds like the “I didnt have sex with that woman” defense.
    c) She deliberately leaked her emails as an act of positive espionage.

    Regardless of which option turns out to be true, it is hardly the outcome one would want attributed to a Presidential candidate.
