The hacker from Romania declared for Fox News that 3 years ago he repeatedly breached security of personal email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
“For me, it was easy, easy for me, for everybody,” 44 years old Marcel Lehel Lazar declared from a jail-house in Alexandria, Virginia State.
To answer Guccifer’s claims of hacking into classified and top secret level information, Clinton’s campaign staff stated: “There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that he would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims.”
Lazar admitted that he used programs like netscan, Netmap, Wireshark and Angry IP to perform its actions from a small Romanian village at the time.
Cyber experts described the hacker claims as plausible, despite lack of direct proof. “This sounds like the classic attack of the late 1990s. A smart individual who knows the tools and the technology and is looking for glaring weaknesses in Internet-connected devices,” Bob Gourley, former chief technology officer (CTO) for the Defense Intelligence Agency, commented.
Nevertheless, Hilary Clinton declared that nobody in her staff was contacted by the FBI on the investigation of these criminal acts.
Lazar’s trial is scheduled on Sept. 12 in the Eastern District of Virginia. The hacker pleaded “not guilty” for all nine federal charges, but he insisted he will cooperate during the investigation.
The FBI has not yet released any statements on the matter.
