- We Spoke to DNC Hacker 'Guccifer 2.0' - Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai, Motherboard, June 21 2016
- Last week, a mysterious hacker using the handle "Guccifer 2.0" emerged to claim responsibility for the data breach at the Democratic National Committee, which democrats and several cybersecurity firms attributed to two groups of Russian hackers, likely working for Vladimir Putin's government.

- We're told Team Guccifer used AOL France's webmail to exchange messages with journalists; these messages, sent from firstname.lastname@example.org, were stamped with a French IP address – 126.96.36.199 – by AOL's infrastructure, meaning the sender was using that network address at the time
- ...It is important to note that the IP address seen in the Guccifer 2.0 AOL communications – 188.8.131.52 – is not listed as an option within Elite VPN Service, although it has an identical SSH fingerprint and has the exact same port (1723, PPTP) open as the listed options. This demonstrates the server was cloned from the same server image as all the Elite VPN servers but may be a private or dedicated version of the service." ThreatConnect also notes that the 184.108.40.206 IP address has been used in a few swindles, including a Russian mail-order bride scam in 2014 and attacks against WordPress blogs last year. The IP address also crops up in a Russian-language text message proxy service and a node list for crypto-currency EDR
- Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov gave a simple reply when asked about the matter by the press. "I don't want to use four-letter words," he said.

- Claims made; no supporting data provided.
- But on one occasion, The Daily Beast has learned, Guccifer failed to activate the VPN client before logging on. As a result, he left a real, Moscow-based Internet Protocol address in the server logs of an American social media company, according to a source familiar with the government’s Guccifer investigation. Twitter and WordPress were Guccifer 2.0’s favored outlets. Neither company would comment for this story, and Guccifer did not respond to a direct message on Twitter.
- How do you distinguish 'VPN' from a 'real IP address' in the 'logs of a social media company'? Just how much info is actually recorded?

- Guccifer2 was created by the DNC to do two things: Make it appear that the Russians hacked their shiz so nobody knew it came from an inside source and use it as cover for the murder of Seth Rich.

- Metadata suggests it took only 30 minutes to go from a DNC tech/data strategy consultant creating documents to Guccifer2.0 tainting them - all occurring on a date that Guccifer2.0 claimed to be after he was locked out of the DNC Network - occurring on the same day that Guccifer2.0 emerged.
- Data found deeper in files now also demonstrates there was a misdirection effort, that, in its larger scope - seems to have been intended to discredit leaks by having leaks blamed on Russian hackers

- d) Guccifer2 was a CIA disinformation campaign to frame the Russians, while thumbing their noses (obvious deception,) before an assumed Hillary Clinton win could provide an appropriate and ‘pragmatic’ response. Had to have assumed a Clinton win, but in the event of a Trump win would be (and is) greatly advantageous. May imply apt28 itself was a false-flag pwn-job.
