However amusing the headline ‘Guccifer 2.0’ Is Bullshitting Us About His Alleged Clinton Foundation Hack may be, Lorenzo Fanchschi-Bicchierai offers no factual evidence to support his claim,
… the hacker’s latest alleged feat appears to be a complete lie.
Or should I say that:
- Clinton Foundation denies it has been hacked
- The Hill whines about who is a donor where
- The Daily Caller says, “nothing to see here, move along, move along”
hardly qualifies as anything I would rely on.
Checking the file names is one rough check for duplication.
First, you need a set of the file names for all the releases on Guccifer 2.0’s blog:
- June 15, 2016: GUCCIFER 2.0 DNC’S SERVERS HACKED BY A LONE HACKER
- June 18, 2016: NEW DOCS FROM DNC NETWORK: LOTS OF FINANCIAL REPORTS AND DONORS’ PERSONAL DATA
- June 21, 2016: DOSSIER ON HILLARY CLINTON FROM DNC
- July 6, 2016: TRUMPOCALYPSE AND OTHER DNC PLANS FOR JULY
- July 14, 2016: NEW DNC DOCS
- August 12, 2016: GUCCIFER 2.0 HACKED DCCC
- August 15, 2016: DCCC INTERNAL DOCS ON PRIMARIES IN FLORIDA
- August 21, 2016: DCCC DOCS ON PENNSYLVANIA
- August 31, 2016: DCCC DOCS FROM PELOSI’S PC
- September 15, 2016: DEMS INTERNAL WORKINGS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, OHIO, ILLINOIS, NORTH CAROLINA
- September 23, 2016: DOSSIER ON BEN RAY LUJAN
Relying on file names alone is iffy as the same “content” can be in files with different names, or different content in files with the same name. But this is a rough cut against thousands of documents, so file names it is.
So you can check my work, I saved a copy of the files listed at the blog in date order: guccifer2.0-File-List-By-Blog-Date.txt..
For combining files for use with uniq, you will need a sorted, uniq version of that file: guccifer2.0-File-List-Blog-Sorted-Uniq-lc-final.txt.
Next, there was a major dump of files under the file name 7dc58-ngp-van.7z, approximately 820 MB of files. (Not listed on the blog but from Guccifer 2.0.)
You can use your favorite tool set or grab a copy of: 7dc58-ngp-van-Sorted-Uniq-lc-final.txt.
You need to combine those file names with those from the blog to get a starting set of names for comparison against the alleged Clinton Foundation hack.
Combining those two file name lists together, sorting them and creating a unique list of file names results in: guccifer2.0-30Sept2016-Sorted-Unique.txt.
Follow the same process for ebd-cf.7z, the file that dropped on the 3rd of October 2016. Or grab: ebd-cf-file-Sorted-Uniq-lc-final.txt.
Next, combine guccifer2.0-30Sept2016-Sorted-Unique.txt (the files we knew about before the 3rd of October) with ebd-cf-file-Sorted-Uniq.txt, and sort those file names, resulting in: guccifer2.0-30Sept2016-plus-ebd-cf-file-Sorted.txt.
The final step is to apply
uniq -d to guccifer2.0-30Sept2016-plus-ebd-cf-file-Sorted.txt, which should give you the duplicate files, comparing the files in ebd-cf.7z to those known before September 30, 2016.

Seven files out of 2085 doesn’t sound like a high degree of duplication.
At least not to me.
PS: On the allegations about the Russians, you could ask the Communists in the State Department or try the Army General Staff. 😉 Some of McCarty’s records are opening up if you need leads.
PPS: Use the final sorted, unique file list to check future releases by Guccifer 2.0. It might help you avoid bullshitting the public.
