Guccifer arrested in Romania
"Guccifer" arrested in Romania, the infamous hacker who was responsible for breaching the social media and email accounts of numerous high profile US and Romanian Politicians.

Romanian authorities collaborated with US services to catch him and the officers of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIOCT) raided His House last Wednesday.
His well known leaks included the emails of former secretary of state 'Colin Powell', suggested that he was having an affair, which was later denied by Colin. He was also responsible for breaking into the Bush family e-mails. The Hacker also infiltrated the email from George Maior, chief of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI).

Guccifer is a 40-year-old Marcel Lazar Lehel, a resident of Arad, who was convicted of several other computer crimes in 2012, according to Romanian media report. But those charges stemmed from Lazăr Lehel's attacks on dozens of Romanian officials between October 2010 and July 2011.
