A new batch of celebrities have fallen victim to yet another hacking scandal.
The site exposed.su has posted the personal financial information of 17 including Jay-Z, Paris Hilton, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher and Mel Gibson, according to the National Post. The site also went beyond the reach of Hollywood and has exposed politicians such as First Lady Michelle Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden. It most recently added entries on Britney Spears and Sarah Palin on Monday.
Most of the information in the “dox” can be found on public record but what’s worrying is that the site was also able to obtain social security numbers. They used that information to access credit reports, loan and mortgage information for nearly all celebrities they have exposed.
Included in the various reports, is a American Express bill issued to Jay Z which shows an outstanding balance of $227,115, a mortgage statement for Kim Kardashian who has a remaining $5.85 million, and a credit score on Paris Hilton (which, by the way, was very good).
Various policing agencies such as the LAPD (who have had their own chief of police exposed in the reports), FBI and credit agencies are all investigating, according to Gawker. There is no apparent motive as of yet.
