Bush Family Emails Hacked, Exposing Photos And Personal Information

Photos and personal correspondence from several members of the Bush family — including both former presidents — have been exposed, after several email accounts belonging to the family or their close friends were hacked. A criminal investigation is underway.

The Smoking Gun first reported the breach and posted the emails, which include photos and personal information. Specifically the hacker, who identifies as “Guccifer,” leaked: “confidential October 2012 list of home addresses, cell phone numbers, and e-mails for dozens of Bush family members, including both former presidents, their siblings, and their children.”

A photograph of President George H. W. Bush in the hospital is among the leaked images, along with other family pictures and photos of President George W. Bush‘s oil paintings.

“Correspondence obtained by the hacker indicates that at least six separate e-mail accounts have been compromised, including the AOL account of Dorothy Bush Koch, daughter of George H.W. Bush and sister of George W. Bush,” according to The Smoking Gun.
