A conspiracy-obsessed hacker who recently targeted George W. Bush and Colin Powell has stolen and posted online the opening pages of an unfinished novel by “Sex and the City” author Candace Bushnell.

“Guccifer,” the hacker who has posted about the alleged centuries-old secret conspiracy by the Illuminati to rule the world, tweeted links to the stolen pages of Ms. Bushnell’s new book “Killing Monica” on Tuesday.

To add insult to injury, the hacker tweeted the links out on the author’s own Twitter feed, having broken into her account, according to Gawker.

Guccifer went on to intercept and post Ms. Bushnell’s worried emails to her publisher about the link, having apparently hacked into her email as well.


Guccifer has been the subject of an FBI investigation since February, when the hacker illegally accessed six email accounts belonging to President Bush and his close friends and family.

The hacker posted Bush family photos, cell phone numbers, worried email exchanges about George H.W. Bush’s health, and, most famously, pictures of the younger Mr. Bush’s in-progress oil paintings.

A month later, former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s Facebook page was also defaced by the hacker.
