HOUSTON (AP) -- A criminal investigation is under way after a hacker apparently accessed private photos and emails sent between members of the Bush family, including both former presidents.

A spokesman for former President George H.W. Bush declined to comment on a report on The Smoking Gun website detailing the alleged security breach.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said the matter is "under criminal investigation."

The hacker reportedly went by the online moniker "Guccifer," a word plastered across the leaked photos in translucent, neon blue print.

"Guccifer" is describes himself as a veteran hacker who has long been in the government's sights.
