Guccifer 2.0’s Epic Hack of U.S. Congress: Cell Numbers, E-Mails, Passwords



Guccifer 2.0 is back. Last night he made a new post outlining his latest exploits, the hacking of the U.S. Congress, or most of them, mostly Democrats:

It’s time for new revelations now. All of you may have heard about the DCCC hack. As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach.

While it is unclear how the breach took place, the revelations are astounding and they include spreadsheets containing passwords, email address and private cell phone numbers of many members of the congress. In addition, Guccifer 2.0 also posted credentials for subscription services used by the DCCC, including Lexis-Nexis accunts and credentials for Glenn Beck’s web site (password: nutbag).

Guccifer 2.0 claims to be Romanian and an “unknown hacker with a laptop, but Hillary’s campaign claims that he is a member of the Russian intelligence services, something which we still have to see evidence for.

What do you think about his hacktivism and its effects on the political system in the U.S.?
