    He probably isn't a really good hacker,he most likely was just guessing the passwords by researching some stuff about those people, alot of older people tend to use easy to crack passwords.

    I seriously doubt most the top level officials use guess-able passwords.

    Guccifer is a good hacker no doubt about it, who know what he found in those emails :D

    Considering that the United States Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton) had a non-secure home-spun mail server where all the super sensitive info was merrily forwarded at just because it was convenient, I find your estimation about Romanian officials extremely optimistic :eek:
