‘British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late suspected double spy Robert Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam, has reportedly been hacked.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Maxwell maintained a secret email server and failed to secure it.
Maxwell claims that her email server was hacked after a court unsealed approximately 2,000 pages of documents last August, according to the Daily Mail.
The extent of the breach is unknown. If emails were obtained in the hack they could showcase embarrassing information on Epstein’s clients, alleged victims, and co-conspirators in his massive sex trafficking operation.
In a newly released court document from the case of Virginia Giuffre (nee Roberts) v. Ghislaine Maxwell, the socialite’s attorneys argue for a cache of communications in the case to remain sealed. Her attorneys have said that there were “serious mistakes,” including insufficient redactions, in the August document release. One such mistake included failing to redact an email address belonging to Maxwell.For example, it redacted a non-party’s name in one location but not another; so the media immediately gained access to that name. As another example, it redacted Ms.Maxwell’s email address (which linked to her own domain name) in one location but not another; shortly afterward hackers breached the host computer.’
