Whoa. Some major celebrities have all-at-one-go fallen into the hands of a pretty pro hacker recently. Celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher, Paris Hilton, and even world icons like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, LA Police Chief Charlie Beck, and FBI director Robert Mueller have had their sensitive financial information posted online.
We know what you’re thinking , “Where, exactly?”.
We don’t know as the website has not been named. C’mon, it does have Hillary Clinton’s and an FBI director’s most personal information, after all. But what we do know is that the information leaked includes social security numbers, credit card details, and details tied to mortgages, loans, and other banking matters.
Dang. We so wanted to know how much Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton spends in a day though! Or rather, in one night of partying.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD):
LAPD detectives are investigating the recent disclosure of Chief Beck’s personal information. Apparently, this is not a hacking incident. It’s called “doxxing”. It has happened to the chief in two other occasions post-Occupy LA. We are not at a liberty to discuss the others mentioned in the web post. There will be no other comments of press conferences on this matter.
Doxxing or hacking, it just goes to show that no one is immune to hackers. No one.
