Democratic National Committee hacker Guccifer 2.0 took spreadsheets containing the personal information from a host of celebrities, C-suite executives and other high-profile donors as part of the attack. 

Among a broader cache of new files released to The Hill, Guccifer 2.0 included spreadsheets of West Coast donors containing contact information with titles like “SoCal 5k+ 2011-2016.” The “5k” refers appears to refer to the total contributions received by the DNC over the past six years. 

{mosads}The files contain entries for personal data including name, address, email address, phone number, job title and the nickname with which to address someone. For example, “Gore” is used for  “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gregor “Gore” Verbinski, who donated  $10,000, and “JJ” for writer/director/producer Jeffery “JJ” Abrams, who donated $33,400. They also include entries for donation totals and the last donation given.  

The files include a number of wealthy donors.

The “SoCal” file has information concerning business figures like Elon Musk; the CEOs of Qualcomm, the Starz Network, Disney and Fox Film; and high-ranking executives at Google, Fox, ABC, Herbalife and Warner Brothers. It also contains information from a host of celebrities, including Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, Magic Johnson, Tom Hanks, Dianne Keaton, Judd Apatow and Rob Reiner. There are 359 entries in all. 

A similar document about $1,000 donors in Washington includes contact information for philanthropists Floyd Jones and Nancy Skinner Nordhoff and various Microsoft employees. 

There are also lists of $10,000 donors, “maxers,” donors from specific events, Christmas card recipients and various information about donation solicitation targets. The files cover Oregon, Washington and California. 

Also included in the Guccifer 2.0 file dump was a “womens power list,” with names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers for more than 700 women. The files include entries for the CEOs of Oracle, the UC Davis Medical Center, 23andMe, J. Crew and Taskrabbit, as well as Stanford’s Dean of Global Health and executives at Intuit, Brightroll, PG&E and CBS.

Guccifer 2.0, the hacker behind the breach, has already released a number of DNC files in the past, including opposition research on Donald Trump, strategies for handling the Republican National Convention and plans to ensure the Iran nuclear deal. The donor documents were included in his second — and most recent — leak of documents exclusively to The Hill. 

Guccifer 2.0 has claimed he is an apolitical Romanian hacker — the name Guccifer 2.0 is a reference to a more famous Romanian hacker known as Guccifer — but there are a few inconsistencies in his story.

Interviewers who have tested his knowledge of the Romanian language found that Guccifer 2.0 likely did not know his supposed native tongue. His techniques bare the fingerprints of known Russian intelligence hacker groups. He also shows a broader knowledge of American political scandals than most Americans

Many have suggested that Guccifer 2.0 is a front for Vladimir Putin in the Russian leader’s efforts to influence American politics, something Guccifer 2.0 denies. 

Trump has suggested that the DNC hack is an organized Clinton campaign effort to cast aspersions on his campaign.
