article imageHackers reveal financial records of 1st Lady, VP and celebrities

By Anne Sewell     Mar 12, 2013 in Internet
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. (Update.)
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.

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.
Update:
While the website is now quite difficult to access, due to DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack protection, it can be seen that a rather worried looking Al Gore has now been added to the list of hacking victims.
