DNC Chair Claims Damning Leaked Emails Were ‘Doctored.’ A Cyber Security Expert Just Demolished Her Cop-Out
In an interview with Megyn Kelly last week, DNC Chairman Donna Brazile was questioned about a Wikileaks email that revealed she received questions for the CNN debate before it even happened.
Yet, instead of admitting that Wikileaks email were authentic, Brazile claimed that they could be “doctored.”
Errata Security's Robert Graham decided to put the “doctored” claims to rest.
In a blog post on his site, he built a bulletproof case against Brazile:
Recently, WikiLeaks has released emails from Democrats. Many have repeatedly claimed that some of these emails are fake or have been modified, that there's no way to validate each and every one of them as being true. Actually, there is, using a mechanism called DKIM.
DKIM is a system designed to stop spam. It works by verifying the sender of the email. Moreover, as a side effect, it verifies that the email has not been altered.
Hillary's team uses “hillaryclinton.com”, which as DKIM enabled. Thus, we can verify whether some of these emails are true.
When an email server sends a message, it'll include an invisible “header”. They aren't especially hidden, most email programs allow you to view them, it's just that they are boring, so hidden by default.
