Hackers have revealed that Hillary Clinton used multiple email addresses on her private server using the domain “clintonemail.com”.
The hacker used an open-source tool, publicly available, called “The Harvester” to search a variety of data sources – including well-known platforms such as Google, Bing, LinkedIn, Twitter and others – for any stored references to email addresses seen using a particular domain, in this case clintonemail.com. Hackers working under contract for private firms, also known as “White Hat hackers,” routinely use The Harvester during so-called “penetration testing,” or “pen testing,” on behalf of clients trying to ensure that their internal systems are secure.
The application of The Harvester to clintonemail.com revealed additional email addresses besides the one that Clinton aides have insisted publicly that she used, and have said was the only one that she used, when she served as Secretary of State: namely, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A screen grab of The Harvester’s findings provided to Fox News by the source in the hacker community – whose professional resume also boasts extensive experience in the U.S. intelligence community – lists rather similar, but nonetheless different, email addresses, including email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
Also unearthed by the hacking tool were email addresses of a slightly varied structure, including firstname.lastname@example.org, Hillary@clintonemail.com, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s not known how many of these multiple addresses the secretary herself may have used, nor whether some may have been assigned to close aides entrusted to communicate with her on the clintonemail.com domain.
