Actress Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga are among the latest victims of the celebrity hackers who exposed the financial secrets of other celebrities and government officials.
In a process colloquially now dubbed in the US as ‘doxxing’, the celebrities’ personal records and details were made public, with the ‘celebrity hackers’ posting what they claim to be the social security numbers, mortgage amounts, credit card info, cable bills, store cards, car loans, banking and other sensitive information of the celebs listed on their site.
According to TMZ, there has so far been little comment from representatives of the public figures targeted in the cyber attacks as to the accuracy of the information revealed.
Last month, the internet hackers had published on their website, the records of other celebrities including, Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher, Mel Gibson, Jay Z, Donald Trump, Paris Hilton, Hulk Hogan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biddenand a few others.
After the first leak, the celebs whose phone numbers were published started receiving a slew of calls from fans hoping to get a hold of their favorite celebrities. It turned out, however, that the numbers were actually those of the stars’ lawyers, accountants and business managers, whose phones were reportedly blowing up nonstop after the information was exposed, according to TMZ.
It is still unclear how the information was obtained or why these individuals were selected, but reports from Huffington Post says that the (Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) are investigating the hack and refused to comment further because of on-going investigation.
