Hacker publishes House Democrats’ personal information
A hacker has published the personal contact information of nearly every Democratic member of the US House of Representatives on his website.
The hacker known as “Guccifer 2.0” uploaded an Excel file on Friday that contains the cell phone numbers and private e-mail addresses of the Democrats.
The file also contains similar contact information of hundreds of congressional staff members, including chiefs of staff, press secretaries, legislative directors, schedulers as well as campaign personnel.
The move was part of the latest batch of documents from a widespread breach of Democrats.
The vandal previously provided nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee e-mails to Wikileaks.
“Guccifer 2.0” said Friday that the new document was stolen during a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
“As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach,” the hacker wrote.
In addition to the Excel file, the hacker uploaded documents containing the account names and passwords for a variety of subscription services used by the DCCC, from Lexis-Nexis to Glenn Beck’s web site.
The hacker also said he had breached House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s computer and published a memo sent to her concerning a 2015 fundraiser for Morgan Carroll, who is currently running for a Colorado House seat against Republican Mike Coffman.
The hacker called the US presidential elections a “farce” which is “being settled behind the scenes as it was with Bernie Sanders.”
“I wonder what happened to the true democracy, to the equal opportunities, the things we love the United States for. The big money bags are fighting for power today. They are lying constantly and don’t keep their word. The MSM are producing tons of propaganda hiding the real stuff behind it. But I do believe that people have right to know what’s going on inside the election process in fact,” he added.
