Hacker Who Introduced Bush’s Paintings To The World Reportedly Arrested

A man accused of hacking into the email accounts of some high-profile American political icons has been arrested by Romanian authorities, according to multiple media reports.

Romania’s Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism raided the home of 40-year-old Marcel Lazăr Lehel on Wednesday and he was reportedly arrested the same night. Lehel is accused of being the notorious hacker Guccifer, who has claimed credit for breaking into online accounts belonging to Colin Powell, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

In fact, it was Guccifer who introduced Bush’s post-presidential love of art to the world. After hacking into Bush family email accounts last year, Guccifer released several paintings by the former president.

According to Softpedia, Lehel has been arrested for hacking before.
