Hackers reveal financial records of 1st Lady, VP and celebrities

(Digital Journal) -Hackers have revealed, and continue to release, the alleged  financial records of various US politicians and celebrities including the First  Lady Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Kim Kardashian and even Donald Trump.

According to RT, the website  revealing the information has a .su domain, which was a country code used for a  short period in the USSR, just before the Soviet Union collapsed.  However, RT  explains that the website is not, in fact, Russian.  On finding a Twitter account linked from the hacker’s website, the tweets  are apparently in badly machine-translated Russian.

At the top of the home page the website  quotes the TV show, Dexter, saying “If you believe that God makes miracles, you  have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve.”

Reportedly, TMZ, the gossip website, was the first to report the leak on  Monday.

The website lists the following, with links which supposedly  take you to the information.

The first is a link to information on  First Lady Michelle Obama, on which the hacker states “Blame your husband, we  still love you, Michelle [heart].”

This is followed by links to the  alleged contact and financial information of Kim Kardashian, Joe Biden, Robert  Mueller (FBI Director), Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder (U.S. Attorney General),  Charlie Beck (LAPD Chief), Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Jay Z, Beyonce, Paris  Hilton, Britney Spears, Sarah Palin, Hulk Hogan, Donald Trump and Arnold  Schwarzenegger.

More names may be added as time goes  by, as apparently the list has grown since first reported on Monday.

Images from a hacker s website

No reason is given for the hacking, but it is noted that while the  hacker appears to like the First Lady, and displays an image saying “I [heart]  Michelle”, the other government people and celebrities are all represented by  rather unflattering photos, as per Ms Clinton on the right.

The webpage for the LAPD Chief, Charlie  Beck, displays the following tag: #YouCantCornerTheDorner, apparently in  reference to the former police officer and alleged cop-killer, Christopher Dorner, recently killed after a police chase,  together with a photo of a woman protesting police brutality.

Britney Spears’ webpage has an image of  her crying, together with sound of an impassioned plea by a friend or fan to  leave poor Britney alone.

Both RT and AP apparently attempted to  contact the listed celebrities, but without success.  They either declined to  comment or could not be contacted.

The LAPD will investigate leaks of personal information for  celebrities living in the city, should they require it.  Apparently so far the  FBI has declined to state whether they are investigating the leak of FBI  Director Robert Mueller’s personal data.
