Hackers Take Aim at Annoying, Overexposed Pseudo-Celebrities

Posted by on Mar 12, 2013 at 8:16 am

It’s like a Who’s Who of annoying people. We’re working hard to muster up some sympathy for this crew.

Sensitive information including Social Security numbers and credit reports of the First Lady, Vice President and numerous Hollywood A-listers have been hacked and posted on to a website, authorities revealed.

The bombshell security breach on Monday has left Los Angeles police and the FBI struggling with how to respond – after the leaders of both agencies were also targeted.

FBI Director Robert Mueller and LAPD boss Charlie Beck weren’t alone. Michelle Obama, VP Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had their addresses and other sensitive information posted online.

Beyoncé, Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian were also exposed by the site – although it is unclear  how the information was obtained or why these individuals were selected.

Social Security numbers allegedly belonging to Mel Gibson, Jay-Z and others matched records in public databases.

Ashton Kutcher, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump and Attorney-General Eric Holder also had their personal details made public in the mass dump of ‘secret files’. 

Apparently this attack came from Russia, but who knows for sure. Perhaps some of these victims might want to maintain a lower profile. There’s something good to be said for staying out of the spotlight.

    Hahah! Hackers win again. I’m sure evil China did it comrade. Those evil Chinese hackers are so good they can’t even use a zombie bot cutout machine or proxy server to hide their tracks. Ohh this time it is evil Russia (wink wink nudge).

    A number alleged to be president Barack Obama’s social security number was also published. While it matches official records with the Social Security Administration, media moguls have declined to report the leak as they were unsure whether any legitimate social security number could be 555-55-55m5.

    Why don’t they do something like finding out what happened to the Obamas’ law licenses?

    @Rachelle Michelle Antoinette had the choice of lose your license or be indicted. Comrade Chairman Messiah lost his because he lied about using other names.

    The people named are mostly rather annoying but their privacy is as valid as mine or anyone else’s. I may be glad if they would shut up and still hope for their well-being.
