The hack that gave the world a whole bunch of emails between Democratic National Committee staffers just took an even more serious turn. This time, the private phone numbers of House Democrats were released on the website of hacker Guccifer 2.0.
The Hill said this:
The document [containing contact information] was obtained from the cyberattack on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). The hacker also published DCCC shared passwords to several online databases and news networks.
The dump also included memos on the House race for Florida’s 18th district, including opposition research on the Republican contenders, which is being vacated by Democrat Patrick Murphy as he vies for the Senate.
The hacker also claimed to have breached House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s computer and published a memo sent to her about a 2015 fundraiser for Morgan Carroll, who is running for a Colorado House seat against Republican Mike Coffman.
No, we aren’t linking to the website with the information, but we will keep you updated as this story develops.
