The Hill said Guccifer 2.0 “shows a detailed knowledge of American politics seemingly at odds with the backstory provided by the hacker” and added that “Experts have questioned whether Guccifer 2.0 is Romanian or even a single person. Tools used in the attack were matched to Russian intelligence agencies and, when tested, Guccifer 2.0 has struggled to speak in Romanian.”
Defense One magazine says: “On June 14, cybersecurity company CrowdStrike, under contract with the DNC, announced in a blog post that two separate Russian intelligence groups had gained access to the DNC network.” The Russian claim was backed up by details such as hacking groups ceasing operations on Russian holidays and having work hours that aligned with the Russian time zone, said Defense One. The Post noted the timing, saying that Guccifer 2.0 started posting stolen DNC documents the day after the private firm, CrowdStrike, revealed its findings about Russia in a blog. In 2015, U.S. officials accused Russia of hacking into the Pentagon’s Joint Staff unclassified email system, said CNBC.
