Hacker Guccifer 2.0 has put back a cargo of US Democratic party data online. This time, the committee in charge has become the election campaign for the Congress victim. Among others, the personal data of 194 congressmen on the street.

Guccifer 2.0 makes data dump known in a post on Medium, which he links to several documents. The largest of these is a comprehensive Excel file with contact information of the current US Congress. Containing the data of 194 MPs and numerous related personnel including private email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, names of partners and beliefs.

2.0 Guccifer said to be motivated by the feeling that the US elections are opaque and unfair. “As you can see, the American presidential elections are a farce,” he says. “Everything is arranged behind the scenes, like Bernie Sanders. I wonder where true democracy remains. These are the big boys who are now fighting for power.”

This time no payment information from donors have been leaked, even although there are indications that these are cases of the hacker hands. He was supposed to donors in the trap lured with a redirect to a fake donation page. What further suspicion somewhat reinforces that this data is captured, but not currently public, the last sentence of the blog post: “Dear journalists, let me know if you are interested in exclusive documents of the DCCC I’ve had enough.”.

The FBI is investigating the hack on the Congressional Committee already. Guccifer 2.0 also claimed responsibility for the hack at the Democratic National Party, which deals with presidential elections. Which ended with a major leak from Wikileaks. Which contained, among other emails from Democrats and personal donors. Several security companies have a suspicion expressed that Russia is in fact behind the hacks, but Guccifer 2.0 itself denies this.
