Guccifer 2.0 Hacks & Leaks

Guccifer 2.0 Hacks & Leaks

Much has been made of the hacker Guccifer 2.0 and his three published leaks from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers. There have been hundreds of pages that have been released and also passing on documents to Wikileaks whom have stated they have enough alone to indict presumptive Democratic Presidential candidate Hilary Clinton.

An investigation led by the DNC found that Guccifer 2.0 was an agent of the Russian government, which the hacker vehemently denies. What has been of more interest is the content of the leaks while also containing evidence of collusion between the DNC and Hilary Clinton before her announced run for the presidency (which has led to a lawsuit from Bernie Sanders supporters).

While portions of the leaks had to deal with DNC opposition efforts against presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump and have shed light on the ongoing corruption concerns with Hillary Clinton, the most interesting aspect of the leak is surrounding just how easy it is for hackers to access important documents.

While Guccifer 2.0 has stated that he is an Eastern European male, he is extremely confident that he will not be captured by authorities. It’s likely that the small bit of information he willingly gave to reporters will aid in an investigation to find his exact location and real motivations behind his actions.

Whether Guccifer 2.0 will be found is an open question as is the ultimate influence the leaks will have on the American political system.
