Who Is Guccifer ?

An obsessed hacker is breaking into the email accounts of  political elite around the world, and sharing what he finds, with friends. Who is Guccifer, and what is his intention ?

The hacker who goes by the pseudonym "Guccifer", a combination of "Gucci" & "Lucifer", reportedly leaked confidential infos of longtime adviser Sidney Blumenthal sent to Hillary Clinton regarding the September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

According to the Smoking Gun, the stockpile repose of four emails, recreated in Comic Sans font to apparently maximize the degradation. Guccifer sent the emails to dozens of politicians and journalists, after he had broken into Blumenthal's AOL email account. (Nobody has published the emails at the time; this might be another sideeffect of the Comic Sans.)

The leaking is another stunt in Guccifer's weeks-long hacking spree targeting international clique. He hacked into friends and family members of George W. Bush and exposed his amateurish paintings and personal correspondences.

He broke into Colin Powell's Facebook page and defaced it with anti-Bush screeds. But with the leak of the Clinton emails he seems to be set on using his access to the inboxes of the powerful.

Unlike hacktivists whose manifestos are longer than their list of accomplishments, Guccifer has not indicated any motive for his spree.

He has targeted both major parties, and it appears that he's leapfrogging from politco to politico using information gained in each hack, much as "Hollywood Hacker" Christopher Chaney weaseled his way into the accounts of dozens of hollywood starlets, domino-style.

According to The Smoking Gun:

In e-mails, "Guccifer" seems to subscribe to dark sides involving the Federal Reserve, the Council on Foreign Relations, and attendees of Bohemian Grove retreats. "The evil is leading this ****ed up world!!!!!! I tell you this the world of tomorrow will be a world of free illuminati or will be no more," he declared.

Guccifer seems to come out of the blue.
