The group had been in the headlines when they hacked CIA Director's email and accessed several portals and tools used by the US law enforcement agencies.
Cracka told Motherboard about hacking Clapper's home telephone account, internet accounts, personal email accounts, and even his wife's Yahoo email account.
The spokesperson for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Brian Hale had asserted that he knew about the hacking and that the appropriate authorities were informed about it.
Cracka, to prove their claim, sent the screenshot of Clapper's wife's Yahoo account, allegedly. Their authenticity, however, is not yet confirmed.
This attack was done by the use of Social Engineering by researching on his life, or by the use of spoofing on the service providers.
