Guccifer is a hacker of Romanian descent who has claimed to time and time again hack different web properties of the US government. He first made headlines when he allegedly hacked the e-mail of Dorothy Bush Koch, who is George W. Bush’s sister and released photos of George H. W. Bush in the hospital that he had found in the e-mail account. In January of 2014 Guccifer’s game seemed to have ended because he was sentenced to seven years in Romanian prison due to allegedly hacking a bunch of Romanian officials, but even though he is behind bars, Guccifer’s hacks have once again come to light. Now Guccifer is claiming that Hillary Clinton’s e-mails were so vulnerable that he was able to hack into them more than once.
Not only was he able to hack into her e-mail account, but he was also able to hack into the actual server on which all of her e-mails were stored. “It was like an open orchid on the internet,” Guccifer said in an interview online. This claim is made even more serious by the fact that 22 of those e-mails were not shared with the public because they were full of top secret information, which means hackers could have gotten to them. Former defense secretary Robert Gates says that the odds are “pretty high” that countries such as Russia, China and even Iran may have hacked her e-mail which appears to be more vulnerable than the state department let on. Gates also stated that he never even used e-mail when he was the Secretary of Defense.
Whatever happened, we may never really know, but the FBI is questioning Guccifer heavily to find out more information, and he has even been extradited from Romanian jail to a US jail for cyber crimes that have taken place on US soil.
