Same Hacker Dumps Additional Files from DNC Systems

Very recently, a single hacker who calls himself Guccifer 2.0 invaded the servers of DNC (Democratic National Committee) and reportedly acquired investigative material by opposition on Donald Trump presidential nominee from the Republican Party. The hack did occur said DNC and also that the documents stolen couldn't be described unauthentic. The Party, nevertheless, keeps on canvassing that the government of Russia was wholly behind the attack -probably since the information grabbed revealed much more in comparison with simple opposition research.

Among content of the files released, there's one dossier of 231 pages consisting of the aforementioned investigative material related to Donald Trump; other documents on the election strategy of Hillary Clinton the expected nominee from the Democratic Party; lists of donors, and things of United State foreign policy.

As with supporters of Sanders, it's very clear from the exposed files that DNC exercised favoritism and bias even as the committee's chairman was Debbie Wasserman Schultz the campaign co-chair of Clinton in 2008.

According to Security Company CrowdStrike, which DNC hired for bringing to halt the breach, two individual hackers' gangs were involved that had connection with Russia government as also were regarded as among the most skilled hacking groups in the world. One gang named Cozy Bear believably breached networks that America's State Department and White House used in 2015.

But, Guccifer 2.0's posting indicated that a lone person executed the assault. CSO.com posted this, June 16, 2016.

More files that the hacker exposed consisted of certain assessment of the body language and speech of Hillary Clinton, together with different reports/memos that DNC staffers exchanged.

Earlier when Guccifer 2.0 first dumped data it contained the file-names, which donors for Democratic Party maintained, however, without any personal details; a highly secret report filched out of Clinton's PC; and DNC's document about Trump.

Security specialists note that although Guccifer 2.0 owed up to the hack, still he maybe from the alleged Internet spying gangs of Russia, attempting at diverting the common masses' mind away from the country's leadership.

CrowdStrike is trying substantiating the origin and genuineness of the exposed documents while described the leakages as one disinformation campaign.
