The apparent hack of several e-mail accounts has exposed personal photos and sensitive correspondence from members of the Bush family, including both former U.S. presidents, The Smoking Gun has learned. The photos and e-mails were uploaded yesterday to an online account that appears to have been hacked for the purpose of hosting the material.
In e-mail exchanges with the person who claimed responsibility for the hack, the individual claimed to have swiped “a lot of stuff,” including “interesting mails” about George H.W. Bush’s recent hospitalization, “Bush 43,” and other Bush family members.
Honestly at this point I just don’t get it. Would the hacker be using Dorothy Bush’s emails for financial gain? Is there some sort of “prowess” attached to all of this? Sure I get it that it’s good to be good at computer crap. That’s wonderful. But getting into people’s personal lives? I never understood that.
I mean did this hacker have a person vendetta to undertake with the Bush family? That I could at least understand. I suppose until we get more info I can’t make fun of this person for much longer.
