Hacker Guccifer Hits Former Defense Intelligence Agency Deputy CIO

Hacker Guccifer recently breached the personal e-mail of Roy Apseloff, who recently retired as Vice President for Information Management and Deputy CIO at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (h/t SC Magazine).

The hacker provided Gawker with a wide range of documents including an appraisal of Apseloff’s house, a photo of Apseloff with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and e-mails dating back to at least 2011.

Topics of the e-mails include the political (“it’s not Obamas fault at all. I’d say its at least 80 percent the fault of the Republicans, perhaps even 90 percent. But if Obama weren’t so weak he could blunt their stupidity”) and the personal (“I’m still hitting the gym hard — always will. I’m also hitting the girlfriend hard and often”).

Apseloff also wrote, “We are very involved in the Wikileaks stuff and have a lot of things on our network to prevent something like that from happening to us. Do we have enough — no, not by a long shot. We need a lot of money in order to be fully protected. We are in the process of building our case for a huge budget add to protect the network.”

Guccifer’s other high-profile targets include the Bush family and Colin Powell.
