‘Fake cyber war’: Hacker ‘Guccifer’ says US obsessed with Russian invasion

‘Fake cyber war’: Hacker ‘Guccifer’ says US obsessed with Russian invasion
Romanian hacker ‘Guccifer,’ who exposed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, says the ongoing barrage of accusations by politicians in the US who claim that Russia “hacked the US election” is part of a “fake cyber war.”
‘Guccifer’, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, spoke to Fox News from a Romanian prison, where he is serving a sentence for cybercrimes. After serving his sentence in Romania, he is to be extradited to the US, where he will also spend time in jail.
In a series of interviews with Fox News, Lazar attributed Russian hacking accusations to Cold War sentiments.
“Americans are crazy about the Russian thing and that Russians are invading the United States,” Lazar said. “It’s crazy… it’s this hysteria you know?”

Speaking two weeks before the Obama administration released a joint DHS/FBI report into alleged Russian hacking, and the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from the US, the Romanian hacker predicted that there “will be probes and indictments against some Russian people.”
Guccifer claimed responsibility for breaching computer networks of a number of celebrities and officials in Romania and the US. He also found emails sent to Clinton’s private address in one hack, and shared his discovery with the public.
Lazar was arrested in 2014, and claimed to have hacked Clinton’s email server while in US custody. That claim was never publicly confirmed by the FBI.
