Guccifer 2.0, the hacker who claims to be behind the cyber-attack on the DNC (Democratic National Committee) servers, has released eleven files on Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States in the 2016 election
Despite two reputable cyber-security firms coming forward and saying that hackerswere behind the attack, Guccifer 2.0 continues to claim he’s working as a lone wolf.
The hacker previously released two batches of files,and . While both file dumps contained random documents, this time around, the hacker leaked only data relating to Hillary Clinton.
By far the most interesting file is the one named “Attacks on Clinton Family Members,” which contains a collection of headlines and references criticizing Bill and Chelsea Clinton, Hillary’s husband and daughter.
Clinton files include criticism and canned responses
The file named “2016 Democrats Positions Cheat Sheet 7-7-15” contains an inventory of all the positions of Clinton’s fellow Democrats, that have sought to gain a nomination for the Presidential race as well. The file included data from Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.
A file named “2016er Attacks – HRC Defense Master Doc [updated]” contains a list of public attacks on Clinton’s campaign from fellow Democrats. The file included canned responses prepared for Clinton by her advisors.
The files “Clinton Foundation Donors $25K+” and “Clinton Foundation Vulnerabilities Master Doc FINAL” contain a breakdown of all the criticism against the Clinton Foundation and its inability to justify all donations in recent years.
A file named “HRC Travel – Private Jets FINAL” details costs of Clinton’s usage of private jets while occupying the position of US Secretary of State. US media reports have said these planes were rented and paid for by several corporations, some of them from Saudi Arabia.
More files are to be expected. Guccifer 2.0 says he donated the entire data trove to WikiLeaks, who’ll be publishing in full in the coming weeks.
