Hacker target 12 celebrities including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Hillary Clinton
We’ve seen many hacking scandals in the past few months, but one hacker might have taken it a step too far.
Twelve big celebrities and political figures including Jay-Z, Beyonce and Hillary Clinton, were all victims of a hack. The person behind the stink posted detailed information about their finances.
A website posted social security numbers, credit card information, mortgage amounts, car loans, phone numbers and other banking information of Jay-Z, Beyonce, Hillary Clinton, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Joe Biden Robert Mueller, Eric Holder and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.
Biden and Clinton did not have much of their financial information compromised, though other personal information was posted on the website.
Though its police chief was also a victim, the LAPD has launched an investigation, according to TMZ.
