(Scroll down for video) The private lives of the Bush family is not so private anymore after hackers gained access to several Bush family email accounts, according to press reports in the United States.
It turns out that even former presidents can fall prey to hackers.
A mysterious hacker apparently accessed private email photos and messages sent between members of the Bush family, including two former U.S. presidents.
The Secret Service is investigating the violation, which seemed to have gained access to a few pictures and some family discussions. But the incident illustrates the ease with which hackers can intrude on privacy, including one of the major and closely monitored family.
A U.S. based news website showed photos that came from the hacker, including some showing Bush during his recent stay in a hospital in Houston, where the 88-year-old spent nearly two months in treatment for complications of a bronchial infection.
The website said the hacker, who went by the online nickname Guccifer had access to material through family and friends of Bush.
