Washington Post: Wikileaks hacks into nearly 20,000 DNC emails

Posted at 5:37 PM, Jul 22, 2016

On Friday The Washington Post reported that Wikileaks hacked and posted nearly 20,000 DNC emails online. The organization dubbed them as a series of new "Hillary Leaks."

The emails include more than 8,000 file attachments from the inboxes of seven key figures in the DNC, per the Wikileaks website:

  • Communications Director Luis Miranda
     
  • National Finance Director Jordon Kaplan
     
  • Finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer
     
  • Finance Director of Data & Strategic Initiatives Daniel Parrish
     
  • Finance Director Allen Zachary
     
  • Senior Advisor Andrew Right
     
  • Northern California Finance Director Robert (Erik) Stowe

They are presented in a searchable database with emails from January 2015 to May of this year. The Washington Post reported that this isn't the first cybersecurity problem that the Democratic Party has faced. Last month the DNC acknowledged that its systems had been breached.
