The list of celebrities victimised by the hacking include Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Joe Biden, Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief Charlie Beck, Donald Trump and hold your breath - the First Lady of US Michelle Obama! Social security numbers and credit reports of these celebrities were made public on the rogue site.

The hackers were able to get confidential information on senior government officials US Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, FBI Director Robert Mueller and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The FBI is now investigating how the celebrities’ Social Security numbers, which can be used in identity fraud, as well as their addresses and credit reports ended up on the site.

The notorious site was registered to the former Soviet Union did not reveal how the information was obtained or why the individuals were selected. A Twitter profile linked to the website included an anti-police message in Russian. Information posted about US Vice President Joe Biden and former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not include credit reports but included addresses and other sensitive information.

The creepy website came with a tagline borrowed from US TV show Dexter: ‘If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve.” The celebrity hackers appears to continue to reveal the details of yet more famous people today. Store cards, car loans and cable bills of the celebrities hacked are among the sensitive information that have been compromised on the web. Several of the purported credit reports appear to have been generated last week. Many of the pages featured unflattering pictures of the celebrities or government officials whose information was posted. An LAPD official said the information was likely taken from what is supposed to be a secure database of city employees.
