Famous hacker Guccifer 2.0, who recently went silent and hasn't said much since he released a large number of documents from the DNC hack, posted a cryptic message today on Twitter regarding the elections.

Guccifer 2.0 makes bold claim

Guccifer 2.0 appears to claim that he has inside information that the Democrats plan to rig the 2016 elections.

On his website, he elaborates:


I'd like to warn you that the Democrats may rig the elections on November 8. This may be possible because of the software installed in the FEC networks by the large IT companies.

As I've already said, their software is of poor quality, with many holes and vulnerabilities.

I have registered in the FEC electronic system as an independent election observer; so I will monitor that the elections are held honestly.

I also call on other hackers to join me, monitor the elections from inside and inform the U.S. society about the facts of electoral fraud.

He continued by saying:

Does Guccifer 2.0 have information we don't know about

So does Guccifer 2.0 have additional information about the election that he isn't letting on? There's currently no evidence to suggest that this is true.

In fact, given the distributed nature of voting machines and the fact that most are not connected to any sort of communication system, it is VERY difficult to do a large scale hack like this.

Nevertheless, Guccifer 2.0 has been able to substantiate his claims in the past, and he does have access (via hacks) that the rest of us may never have.

One particularly interesting part of the statement is that Guccifer 2.0 is suggesting he's in the U.S. It was previously thought that we was in Europe.
