A hacker who goes by the name of Guccifer has reportedly compromised the email accounts of at least six people close to George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and has distributed some of the private emails and photographs online.
The Smoking Gun published a report Thursday saying it had spoken with the hacker, who said he wasn't worried about the possibility of the FBI or Secret Service coming after him. Guccifer said the "feds" have been investigating him a long time and "this is just another chapter in the game.”
Among the photographs allegedly posted online by the hacker were two showing President George W. Bush painting, and one with him and Ralph Lauren. President George H.W. Bush also appears in some of the photos, including a recent one of him in the hospital and another with President Clinton.
Some of the pictures came from the email accounts of Dorothy Bush Koch, George W. Bush's sister. The Smoking Gun said it called her about the hackings. She was shocked and responded “Why would someone do this?” the news website said.
