A hacker with the screen handle Guccifer 2.0 has claimed to have hacked the Clinton Foundation's website and leaked various emails tied to the Democratic National Committee. A number of files that could be potentially damaging to Hillary Clinton's reputation have been uncovered. The Clinton Foundation has issued a statement of denial about this claim. The hacker has reportedly posted screenshots and copies of spreadsheets that he claims to have found on the DNC's servers.
The hacker was posted that the Clinton campaign hasn't even bothered to secure their information against intrusions, and breaking in was a relatively quick and easy process. There has also been media attention devoted to the political motivation behind the breach. The hacker even mentioned a shout-out to Julian Assange. The two of these hackers have been tied to the publication of condemning information about private citizens and about members of the DNC.
