A slew of celebrities have been the victims of a hacker who has posted an alarming amount of personal and financial information online.
Now the website, which we will not link to here, has disclosed financial information of First Lady Michelle Obama, including her credit report, social security number, phone number and banking and credit card information.
The First Lady is the just the latest hacking victim. The website has also obtained and posted financial records for Beyonce, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
When Michelle Obama’s name is clicked on the site, a comment reads, “Blame your husband, we still love you, Michelle.” So perhaps the hacker is specifically targeting President Obama’s friends and family, in addition to celebrities.
TMZ is reporting that the FBI is “aggressively investigating” the hackers, who are reportedly not just posting the financial information, but using it as well. The FBI also reportedly knew about the hackers before the website went live. The investigation did not start yesterday.
The Los Angeles Police Department has also confirmed an investigation, as their own police chief is one of the people who has been hacked.
Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says, “People get mad at us, go on the Internet and try to find information about us, and post it all on one site. The best word I can use to describe it is creepy.”
