On Friday, Wikileaks dumped nearly 20,000 apparent emails from members of the US Democratic National Committee (DNC). Shortly after, the pseudonymous hacker Guccifer 2.0, widely believed to be the work of Russian intelligence, said they were behind the breach.
“Yeah man,” Guccifer 2.0 told Motherboard in a Twitter message when asked to confirm whether he was responsible. Guccifer 2.0 also tweeted, “Wikileaks published #DNCHack docs I’d given them!!!”
