According to TMZ on Feb. 8, a computer hacker called "Guccifer" hacked into the AOL account of Dorothy Bush Kock, the sister of former President George W. Bush. The hacker then released "tons" of stolen material online, including photos of both Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush.
The hacker also got emails sent between members of the Bush family and also released private telephone numbers and addresses online as well for both the Bush family and their friends. One of the photos released by "Guccifer" showed the elder Bush in the hospital, where he was treated for a bronchial infection.
The secret service is currently investigating the matter, and as a result, the entire situation is confidential right now. Neither the spokesmen for the Bush family nor the FBI in Houston where Bush lives would comment on the investigation. One thing that is known is that "Guccifer" has been in action for a long time, and the government has been after him for awhile now.
"Guccifer" watermarked the photos with their codename and then revealed they had three years worth of information to expose.
Other than the addresses and phone numbers, the only other information revealed at this time were the photos, including one of the elder Bush with Bill Clinton and one with George W. Bush painting.
