In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Colombian hacker, Andrs Seplveda, who is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence boasted of his ability to hack into campaign networks and manipulate opinion.

“My job was to do actions of dirty war and psychological operations, black propaganda, rumours the whole dark side of politics that nobody knows exists but everyone can see,” the 31-year-old told Bloomberg.

Seplveda, and other hackers installed malware to monitor opponents during 2012 campaign as part of black propaganda operation.


Andrs Seplveda, an online campaign strategist, claimed he had also helped to manipulate elections in nine countries across Latin America by stealing data, installing malware and creating fake waves of enthusiasm and derision on social media.
